About me

I was born in Bristol in 1948. I am now semi-retired and enjoy playing golf (badly,) films, books and traveling. I have spent most of my working life in the antique trade, mainly as a restorer, and when younger, I was a semi-professional magician and a solo glider pilot.

I have written three reference books on antiques and woodwork, all now, sadly out of print, and have just completed my second work of fiction. Both books are crime thrillers and feature the same characters.

It isn't the first time I have experienced this, that when wanting to read even one of my own works online, all I get is the message at the top of the page that it is loading, but nothing else happens. I don't know if this is helpful, but perhaps the easiest thing might be to send me a PDF copy of the manuscript, to my home email, which is worthingsp@ntlworld.com. Clearly, this is something that you might raise with the site people at completely novel, but it is definitely getting in the way of me being able to read it. And whilst I have been writing this note to you, the programme has been 'loading' in the background, and still nothing has been happening. I am looking forward to reading it now, having decided this is something I want to do. Frustrating that such a helpful website is not being quite as helpful as one would wish! I have a fairly healthy virgin media Internet connection, that is meant to be 20 Mb. And so it cannot be as simple as insufficient bandwidth! Yours sincerely Stephen Page (more) and received+3
