Just over three-years ago I had a book published about the lighter side of my 30 year policing career which for a local book sold quite well. I then had the bright idea that it might be possible to turn it into an audio-book. Seeking out advice which suggested that if I could find someone to do it just get on with it.
Having found a wonderful recording technician, the next step was to consider who would do the voice for it. As I am now delivering 60 / 70 public speaking presentations annually and speaking on cruise ships who better, do it yourself.
it has taken almost twelve-months to complete this self-financng project. The whole recording project with opening music and closing music was completed today. In due course selected sections of the audio-book will appear on my website.
Christmas time at Lightcliffe C of E School - This wonderful photograph of some of the young students at the school complete with painted faces all pose with Fathe Christmas - an occasion they will not have forgotten. Left to Right: Bethany Berry, Thomas Thorns, Emma Thorns, Jade Rose who is sat on Santa's knee, Hester Sharpe and teacher Sue Fox as the fairy.. This is 21 years ago - if the children were 4/5 years on the photo they will now be 25/26 years old - I wonder where they are now?
