Hello. My name is Colin Wreford and my first novel "Common Sense" will be officially published on 28th January 2022.
I was born in Newton Abbot, Devon. Upon leaving school I joined Midland Bank and worked for them for 20 years. I then took voluntary redundancy and completed my education and obtaining a Bachelors Degree in Business Management. I held managerial positions in several different organisations before retiring to care for my parents.
Three years ago I started writing poems and song lyrics as a hobby. One day in the summer of 2020 I was walking at Goodrington beach and had an idea for a song. I quickly realised that i could not tell the story properly in the timescale of a song and also that I could not make it rhyme.
That idea has become my debut novel and I am delighted that it is to be published through Matador.
