I am the author 7 non-fiction books (2 full length & 5 between 55 and 127 pages) and am working on my first novel.
My most recent full-length book is Umberto Nobile and the Arctic Search for the Airship Italia (Stroud, Fonthill Media, 2017).
My novel is set in the Republic of Paraguay in 1932-1933, during the Gran Chaco war with Bolivia. My main character is a New Zealander aged 30. It is the Great Depression and he cannot find work as a lawyer or pilot (he is ex-RAF) in New Zealand and he has signed on as a seaman on a tramp steamer. The book is to be 75,000 to 80,000 words and I have completed the first 20,000 words of the first draft.
My friends remind me that I cannot revise until I have something to revise.
