From Portsmouth, England, ][ Bookends spends most of his life working, parenting, occasional home improvement projects, gardening and reading modern, classical and historical fiction. His life is very similar to many other men of his age, forty (or so). It seems that this is the persona he is keen to promote.
He is very private about his writing, claiming to be the conduit chosen to tell the stories that make up the series he calls, ‘The Tinkerman Tales’. No one knows who has chosen him or why. He was certainly not selected for his writing abilities. He has no previous experience of any writing or creativity on his CV. A deeper scan of his history draws a complete blank. It seems that his sole contribution to the literary world consists of tedious office emails, project delay reports and angry letters to the council. With this background, his role as author is, at the least, curious.
He says that he feels that the story is written through him rather than by him and takes pleasure in acting as the “typewriter” for whoever is feeding him the words. To him it is a privilege to be the first to hear the story. His reluctance to publish his story and the concerted efforts he makes to remain anonymous throughout his research adds to the mystery of his motivations.
