About The Author
Terry, now retired, was born in Burnt Oak,
North London and moved to Carlton
Colville, Lowestoft in 1992.
He worked for many years in the
retail furniture trade, but has also
been a postman, milkman, ice cream
seller and manager of a pet cemetery
(a job he soon decided was not for him).
For many years he would make up stories
for his nieces and nephews and has now
published two books of Willigrew stories,
a children’s poetry book and three
collaborations with other authors.
He blames Spike Milligan, the Goon Show and
Monty Python for the level of humour in these
tall tales and rhymes.
My Weekly Blog
Week Ending Sunday 19th June 2016
Welcome back to my blog. Sorry, been really busy but, hopefully, should update regularly from now on.
What have I been up to? I have been busy finishing the Pakefield School story ‘In Different Eyes’ (nearly done). This was a story created by the pupils of and enrichment class that I took last autumn.
I gave a reading at Wroughton Junior School in Gorleston. This was really big fun and I thank the staff and pupils for making me so welcome.
Last week I gave a talk at the WI in Lowestoft. Again, a warm welcome for Lily and I and, I think, we all had fun. The strawberries and cream were delicious and a nice surprise.
On Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd July I will be appearing at the East Anglian Festival of Culture. I will be at the Hatfield Hotel on both days 10-4. Hope to see all you Willigrews fans there for a catch-up.
Welcome to the new shiny Willigrew’s Blog.
On this page you can keep up to date with all the excitement and current goings on of our little green friends.
I will also keep you posted on what I (the author) am up to and, what is more, I will update it every week. So please watch this space.
Every now and then we will have a guest blogger. Yes, Bronglay, Longstint and Krowfin are already discussing who will be first.
