Words ARE enough

From an early age I’ve always loved writing.

This was evidenced through stories I wrote for English homework which were full of fantastical ideas.

I also enjoyed marathon reading sessions. I remember getting through the Lord of the Rings on a beach in Corsica, while I was staying with a French family as part of an exchange trip. My back went as brown as a berry.

I tried some more serious writing later in life, but never dared to publish anything. Only when I first started blogging in 2012 did I start to open up and set free my urge to produce my own words.

Now I feel almost liberated.

I am on the verge of self-publishing my first book called ‘Building Passions’. I have started planning my next book, which will tell the world the fictionalised story of my grandfather Lex von Behr.

I want to encourage you to write as well.

People say actions speak louder than words, but writing and publishing a book is action with words. Please participate!

I've been blogging since 2012 under different guises and on a range of topics mainly linked to education, but more recently focusing on the history of civil engineering and architecture. I am writing a book on the 19th-century Brunel and Barry families of successful architects and civil engineers who built the Houses of Parliament, Tower Bridge, Paddington Station and the Royal Opera House in London and the Clifton Suspension Bridge in Bristol.
