Memphis book talks

Thank you Memphis for your southern hospitality, for your overwhelming acceptance of my novel and for giving me the chance to spread the word that war is not the answer to political disagreements.  The characters in 21 Aldgate have lived through two world wars.  They have done so with humour with dignity and with the resolve to never let it happen again.  Yet, wars continue, and try as we may, we do not appear to be able to stop them. 21 Aldgate is written in their memory, and as tribute to the soldiers who fought and died on the battlefields of the Somme and for the civilians who perished in London from bombs indiscriminately falling out of the skies.
