APOLOGIES I AM REPLACING  LIVE EVENTS WITH  ZOOM FOR THE FORESEEABLE FUTURE DUE TO COVID 19 AS CLOSE FAMILY ARE IN THE “AT RISK” GROUP. I WILL POST UPDATES ON HERE AS SOON AS THEY ARE AVAILABLE.

I would like to thank Jayne Rogers of Garth Olwg Lifelong Learning centre and Howard Thomas pf Pontypridd Historical Society for organising the Zoom talk on Pontypridd during the Depression Years last night, and also everyone who joined the talk and those who e-mailed or facebooked me this morning to say they enjoyed it. I would also like to acknowledge all the help I have received over the years from all the local historians who have worked so hard to research and document the history of the South Wales Valleys. There are too many to mention but special thanks to Keith Jones, whose book “A lingering fear” is the definitive masterpiece on Pontypridd workhouse. Thanks also to Dean Powell, Brian Davies, David Maddox, Phil Rowlands, among others and all the photographers who post up so many beautiful photographs of South Wales as it now is and as it was, especially Nick Kingsbury, Keith Jones, Delme Thompson and Kenneth Townsend for his site “Never forget you are Welsh” which has so many photographs to remind us where we have come from. My apologies to everyone I have left out, all I can say is our history will never be forgotten with so many dedicated people working so hard to preserve it.

Great book that really sets the scene for the uprising! Hoping there are plans for a series! Would also make for a great, LONG overdue film! #OwainGlyndwr #WelshHistory

This site has been expertly and beautifully constructed by the talented designer/s @ Web Design Wales.  At the moment it is an ongoing project which will allow for time for all of my books to be re-jacketed by the brilliant steve@ebookcovers.uk.  As a result some of my books still have temporary jackets, but given the quality of Steve’s work I think you will agree the results are well worth the wait. Thank you for your patience.

Check out my blog on the ‘Random Thoughts‘ page, which will be updated over time.
