Background Information

I’ve always been interested in writing and over the years have tried my hand at various short stories, plays and novels. In fact American Ambition is not my first novel but my third. The first I attempted in 1984, is now lost and probably just as well. The second dates from 1988 and I still have the typescript, produced on an old manual typewriter and with a lot of tweaking might just make it back into my list of projects. After several false starts over the last few years I finally made my mind up to have “one more go” at writing a novel. With modern technology such as PCs and the internet there was no excuse for not trying again. After many rejections from agents and publishers – most of whom had not even read my work – I finally found Lulu. I uploaded a version of my book on the day after my daughter’s wedding and what a thrill it was to receive a printed version through the post a couple of weeks later. My book with my name on the cover!
