Hi all

New here and looking forward to becoming an active member.

My name is Kevin Ashman and I post under the name of Silverback.
I live in South Wales, UK and have recently managed to get around to fulfil a lifelong ambition. Writing.

My website is Silverbackbooks.co.uk and my books can be found on Smashwords, Amazon.co.uk and Amazon.com

I have written three novels so far and almost finished the fourth.

I understand we can do a bit of self promo during the introductions so please feel free to have a look at the links below

Mortuus Virgo

Also, I would really love to build up a network of friends across the world so please feel free to e mail me at the address below.

many thanks

Hi Kevin. Does 'silverback' refer to the dominant male gorilla?
