Philip Hamlyn Williams - my other CV

Writing is my third career - the publication of my first book coincided with the date of my entitlement to the state pension! William Smith Williams was my great great uncle and I needed to discover more about him; the result is this book but also an article in Brontë Studies. Most of my writing is about exploring some of the less well trod paths of history. You can read more on my blog. Here is what else I have done.
