    About Author

    1. I m a freelance economist, writer, researcher and surveyor who lives in Crewe I have been writing for many years, and my first non fiction book was published in 2000 I started writing fiction about eight years ago and published my first novel in 2011.The fact that I am a published writer already is the explanation of why, in meetings, I am known as Tim and whilst on the covers of my novels I am Malcolm actually my middle name I wanted to avoid people looking for my property books finding themselves ordering a novel about aircraft and vice versa If you are really interested, I am the author of four text books, Contemporary Property Development RIBA enterprises , Investment Property Valuation Today Reed Elsiver , Financial Feasibility Studies for Property Development Routledge and Argus Developer in Practice Apress, USA , all of which are available on I have also ghost written three successful business books.My main love, however, is fiction.I think I have a reputation for being a bit flighty when it comes to genres Whilst that might be unfair, I do sometimes think that it looks like I am attempting to write a novel in every one I know I should really choose one, specialise and perhaps get rather good at it but that is boringly conventional I write what interests me Whatever, this trait has led to me producing such diverse works as a climbing based thriller The Last Mountain , a 1950s spy thriller Contrail and a supernatural murder romance Touched.Despite this variety, I think my writing does have a recognisable DNA I am quite a sparse, spare writer I am not one for flowery prose I am a story teller To me the story is everything To tell a story you need realistic and believable characters operating in a consistent world As the real world and the people in it are far from perfect, so my characters are often deeply flawed and their lives and situations difficult.That does not stop me dabbling in comic satire My latest novel is The First Book of Gabriel This is set around the little known first Global Financial Crisis the one that happened at the time of Creation.

    One thought on “It Never Was Worthwhile

    1. A collection of short stories about WW1 Painful to read yet somehow strangely compelling The Cuirasser of Verdun, The Sub human, Ghoul ones that stand out, but they are all heart wrenching stories and worth reading.


    2. Considering that the three subject matters for stories that I dislike most are space, cowboys and war, I didn t expect to read and enjoy a collection of stories centred around WW1, but read it I did and enjoy it I most certainly did too.Each tale has a different voice, something difficult for most writers of collections to produce and Havard and Shaw achieve this with ease, no two stories are alike, the phrasing, the syntax the structure of each one differs from the previous one, so much so you [...]


    3. A cracking collection of WW1 short tales Shaw and Havard approach the same tropes of WW1 fiction from very different angles Contrasting and complimenting each other s vastly styles An excellent read
