Hailing from Stratford Ontario, Teddy Payne has a number followers and not just on Facebook. People adore him. How can they not?
This British gent is quite the character (stated in a good way, my friend). In addition to being funny, bright, and totally charming, he’s a walking compendium of history.
Memoirs, novels, short stories and poetry are some of the many things he’s penned. Illustrations abound, too. . . . Writing and drawing: having just one of these talents is enviable, but both?!
The list of accomplishments is lengthy, so here is a small one that might whet the appetite:
- The Apricot Blooms in the Desert (memoir)
- The Streets of Odeon (memoir)
- When the Devil Drives (novel)
- The Man who Loved Women (short stories)
- Teddy Payne’s Stratford
- The Swans of Stratford
- Paraphernalia for a Saturday Afternoon
Here’s to you, Teddy. May we enjoy many, many more years of you and your opuses.
I'm primarily a writer of fiction and blog posts, and a sometimes editor and proofreader of books, manuals, and film/television scripts. Fact-checking and researching, organizing and coordinating are skills and joys (I enjoy playing detective and developing structure). My fiction audience: lovers of female-sleuth mysteries. My genres of preference: mysteries (needless to say), women’s fiction, informative and helpful “affirmative” non-fiction.
So-o, here I am, staring up a new blog for aspiring and established e-Book writers. The plan: to share the (long) journey of getting to this stage, and share "learnings" and "teachings". There's a lot I hope to accomplish with this blog, but it may be a while before that happens as there's a lot on the ol' plate - taking care of Mom, working full-time, and attempting to get another book in the Triple Threat Investigation Agency series written (never mind blog postings and other writing projects).
It's very challenging and it's all good. As I like to say: teeny focused baby steps are just as effective as long forceful strides. It may take a little longer, but we will get there.
