Hi. I’m Tony. Bea (my girl cousin) and I are agents – Troubleshooters – of the Galactic Federation. Was Columbus’s ‘Water of Youth’ a scam? The investigation took me to a weird village in a crater on the planet Baboo 9. And what was the secret of the Lord of the Mighty Water?

About the Author
I retired (early) and started a new career as a writer. I wrote short stories and articles. Some were published; some won prizes; some sank without trace. Having heard my stories, two friends suggested I should write for children. I’d never thought of that, although I’d spent my first career communicating with young people – as a Chemistry teacher, and running clubs for badminton, chess, table tennis and hillwalking. I tried writing for young people – and I loved it. It became my main occupation. I sent samples to publishers. One asked to see a complete story. In excitement, I sent it off. Then nothing. After four months, I rang, and was told the manuscript was being considered: I would be notified. Then more nothing. Now, after eight years, I no longer rush to the door when the letter box rattles. But I kept writing the stories because I enjoyed it so much. Until, in late 2013, I learned I could publish my stories and games as e-books. Since then, I’ve been polishing and issuing some of them. I hope everyone enjoys reading them as much as I enjoyed writing them. Check out the series: C: Charades – party game – a new twist to the traditional game. D: Diagags – party game – gags written as plays for two people. M: My Story – novels – classical stories, told by the heroes. O: One-Offs – party game – guess the titles, not quite the classical ones. P: Pop Tales – short stories – inspired by 60s and 70s hit songs. Q: Quote-Outs – word games – can you deduce the missing words? S: Inside Story – novels – a boy’s adventures inside classical stories. T: Troubleshooters – novels – space adventures for young people.
