I was one of four brothers working in the pit in spite of the fact that Dad had been killed at Bestwood pit in 1940 leaving six children. A short piece of writing helped get me out of the pit after nine years working on the coal face. I have been Chair of Malvern Writers' Circle and have two of my books selling on Amazon and various other sites. Married at eighteen and widowed forty years later I came to Malvern and shortly after married a local woman who has made me the luckiest and happiest of men.
