Lulu lost a good friend and a great author on May 23rd.
Kit Gleave, author of the Stone Messiahs series passed away in Bath, England last month. I never met Kit, but corresponded with him numerous times about marketing his writing.
I was born in London and enjoyed, or more to the point, detested the cheapest education money could buy. Luckily this fiasco didn’t last long and six weeks after my 15th birthday, proudly holding my diploma for swimming 100 yards, I was sent to No 10 Downing Street where, in recognition of this accomplishment, I was given the task of handing tools to the guys who hung the doors in the corridors of power.
After three years of mind bleaching boredom I quit carpentry and started life afresh. Fortune smiled and I landed the lead role in Duffer, a well received independent movie. This led to stage management with the Quipu Theatre, the infamous Angie Bowie Road Show and Crisis Cabaret. But painting had always been my great passion and after marrying my wife, Isobel, and moving to the heritage city of Bath I dedicated more and more time to it.
However, I also had a passion for words but due to dyslexia putting them down was a problem. Then entered the computer age and I was free to start teaching myself to write. My first full-length novel “The Stone Messiahs”, told in two parts, “A Child of Two Worlds” and “The Circle”, is the story of a lost human history and of those whose struggle it is to rekindle the promise of its ancient and unimaginable secrets.
His widow, Isobel, is currently editing Kit’s third book. Head to Kit’s storefront to learn more about Kit and his writing.
