What is your favorite meal?
The last one I had!
If you were to write a series of novels, what would it be about?
Love, Light and Laughter, three things that make life worth living. There is scope within those words, which would allow for a very broad brush to be wielded over the plots and characters developed in them. Find out what they are about in 2058, the timing for my sequel to “My Wonderful Wobbly Life”.
Is there a writer you idolize? If so who?
My Chickadee, who has been my partner/wife for the past fourteen years is a retired teacher of English and Drama. During the time we have been together I have learned (nearly), how to communicate using the written word with correct English Grammar, to get my message to the readers. Apart from that, I idolize her because she puts up with me and laughs with me.
How did you come up for the title of this book?
It was suggested by a friend, who is also a writer. It struck the right chord with me so now I have a web page http://wobblycharles.com. Have a look.
Read an Excerpt:
When they told my mother her little Bobby had brain damage and was a cripple, can you imagine how she felt? According to her, devastated!
The way home from the hospital led to one of London’s bridges across the River Thames. She stopped halfway across with the intention of SPLASH!!! End of story for both of us. She hesitated. The thought of a man crippled by polio, who had succeeded despite his disability and become President of America, came into her mind. She walked on thinking, if F.D. Roosevelt can succeed, so can my Bobby!
When my father arrived home that afternoon my mother was on her hands and knees scrubbing the kitchen floor, filling the bucket with her tears.
“What’s the matter Peg?”
“Oh Bert! our little Bobby’s a CRIPPLE!”
“Well Peg, even if he is, there is one thing we are not going to do. We are not going to be ashamed and hide him away. He will come everywhere with us.”
He was as good as his word. I went everywhere with them when I was young and have fantastic memories of fun times. One of my favourites was being at a dance hall, possibly the Wimbledon Palais de Dance. I could not have been older than three or four, but I distinctly remember my father dancing around the dance-floor with me standing on his feet. It made me feel so proud and grown-up and I was then content to sit and watch for the rest of the evening. He was a real Yorkshireman, proud of me, his son.
