When I began to write Eight days later I honestly hadn’t got a clue about writing, It started as a story I wanted to read. With a lead character and a mix of other personalities all very one dimensional.
Some aspects of “Eight Days Later” are factual, such as places, each business and restaurant exists. anyone who served in the airborne forces and was stationed in Aldershot will be more than familiar with the “Crimea” and “The Trafalgar” Boyd Aimes is the coming together of several individuals, some of whom I worked, or served with. The rest of him is fiction. It is difficult to separate the component parts of a character. But as the stories develop so too will the main character.
