47th Anniversary

Today, October 12th is the 47th anniversary of the day I started writing fiction for the first time – Monday, October 12th 1970. I still remember how I excited I was when I put pen to paper for the first time. I ran outside to tell my mother the news. Little did I think that I’d still be writing fiction 47 years later.
The hero in my stories was a private detective called Greg Stewart, whose name I think I borrowed from a comic. He was assisted in his investigations by Tom Walker, replaced in 1973 by Mark Kirby.
By the time I’d finished writing these stories in March 1977, I had filled almost 75 copybooks and written over 100 stories. They took me from the last year in national school to the first year of my university studies.
