Tom_Fleck_Cover half size


Welcome to Fusion and 1513. It comes out of Eskdale in North Yorkshire, England. Have a look at the enamels, stories and verses; also details of my Tudor novel, ‘Tom Fleck’.

The historical adventure, ‘Tom Fleck’, is set in the year 1513. In 2013 we saw the 500th anniversary of the great events that determined Tom’s future.  I’ve completed a sequel – ‘The Black Caravel’.  It takes up the story of Tom Fleck and Rachel Coronel twentythree years after they met – and we meet their children.

‘The Black Caravel’ is now displayed on Amazon.

And in May 2018, “The Best of Days” became available; it is largely a memoir of my time at sea. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Best-Days-memoir-sea/dp/1981922954/ref=tmm_pap_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=&sr=

    Hallo Harry. Congratulations on your creative stuff. High quality and standard, if I may say so!

    I have a WordPress site called banklineonline.com, and have also written a memoir book called ” Any Budding Sailors?” which is both an ebook and a print version via create space. Also have a love of writing poetry but have yet publish a volume. Don’t imagine poetry sells very well, although there is a lot of interest on line. I am always struggling a bit with the technology, and admired your efforts which are so professional.

    all the very best/Alan

    • Good morning, Alan. My compliments on your work to preserve memories of The Bank Line (I often observed those vessels standing off obscure eastern ports, and wondered about the adventures they would have.
      On poetry, it seems there are more poets than buyers of poetry books; but that is no reason to hold off our creative urge. My own collection ‘Wandering About’ finds a couple of new readers each year; possibly curious after reading one of my novels.
      I’ve become fascinated by memoir, and feel it worthy of much more than the recording of bare fact.

      This is good: http://www.writersdigest.com/whats-new/10-ways-to-tell-if-your-story-should-be-a-memoir-or-a-novel.

    Fragments of Tom’s world is a delightful insight into the ancient roots of Northern England. As an American possessing a modicum of muddled English heritage, i find your storytelling touching and entertaining …

    • Thank you, Dolores. It still feels ancient away from the roads and particularly at night. I’d be a touch nervous in the dark among the standing stones on the moor above this house. My forebears have been around this region since at least 1570 and, considering the surnames, probably much longer . . . so I feel at home.
