Narrating the first part of the sea voyage of Maurice Charcutte in the company of Captain Penghallen
About the Author
English by birth and culture Trevor Welford has dabbled in both short stories and prose throughout a varied career in the public and private sectors. Moving to Orcas, in the San Juan Islands, Washington, USA gave him the time and freedom to both create anthologies of his writing to date and start major new projects include among other things a major novel trilogy. Creatively he takes his influences from such varied authors as Dodgson, Lear, Shakespeare and Cervantes. His early prose was often in the form of free verse, reminiscent of 40's and 50's Jazz or beat poetry, styles he references to the present day. A genuine love of the perverse nature of both the English language and its humor pervades throughout often adding surreal or pantomime like episodes and themes. The characters tend to be human in every sense of the word, driven by the essence of their primal natures but also touched with the sentient spark to understand the difference between right and wrong.
