A Story Of Ultimate Sacrifice In WW2 By Chris Bridge

back behind enemy lines

Chris Bridge is the author of Back Behind Enemy Lines, a novel inspired by his mother. Though Chris has his own compelling backstory. After being expelled from boarding school, Chris studied English and Philosophy at Nottingham University. He then followed a successful career of teaching and management. Since retiring, Chris has worked as a consultant helping schools in difficulties. In his professional life he never abandoned writing. Until he became a Headteacher, Chris used to write school shows which often involved tailor-making a script to the students involved. One of his pieces was a musical called Cotton On which he took the the Edinburgh Festival Fringe; it sold out and earned a good review from The Scotsman. Back Behind Enemy Lines is Chris’ first novel.

David Chilcott: The Thrilling Series of John McBride

David Chilcott is the author of the up and coming John McBride series: ‘Murphy’s Heist’ and its sequel ‘Cruise the Storm’. He is currently writing the third book of the series, planning to be published in early April. Having been an avid reader of fiction for a long time, David has toyed with writing a novel a few times previously. The first occasion was in his late twenties, a science fiction book that was never finished. Ten years later David completed a thriller novel, though never succeeded in getting it published. Third time lucky, with the knowledge of his ability to write thrillers, David set out to write for the e-book audience. He admits that when the first book went online, it has not undergone any editing. After this being pointed out in a review, David withdrew the book and had it edited. This resulted in him partly rewriting it, thus improving its rating to four stars!

Why I wrote Run & Break by Hugh Pryor.

One night, Hugh Pryor was having a beer when a lovely blonde forensic scientist from Yorkshire came up to me and said: ‘Hugh, we’ve run out of books to read. Go and write us a book! You write articles for magazines, so just make them a bit longer!” That was to be the start of Hugh’s writing career.

He tells The Founding Fields all about how his experiences flying in Africa on contract inspired his first book Run & Break.
