I always wanted to write but life intervened and making a living interfered with that ambition.
Margaret, my wife, and I worked together for many years and when she died I decided that I could not continue on the same path. There was a story for children that I had often talked of writing. By good fortune, a friend was going to a local writers group where I found encouragement and support. I have had short stories and poetry in magazines and anthologies. I have published two poetry collections and a poetry pamphlet and was winner of the Scottish Writers short story competition 2011 and poetry competition 2012. I have four novellas about Sebastian Symes, Victorian Detective, available as ebooks from Amazon. I have a website www.gwcolkitto.co.uk. which has some of my work and links to the books.
