Escape over the Wall is the only way Jack will ever be free, he has plans but will he make it?
about the author
I was born in the East End of London in an area that was still covered by wartime debris, where we lived in an old house supported by three wooden buttresses. It was small and very cold in winter, heated by a coal fire and a paraffin stove where Mum worked endlessly shopping, cooking and cleaning everything manually.
What a change to the life we live now surrounded with technology at our fingertips, yet, personally I feel I have been privileged to have experienced that time, to have had a foot in each camp, be it modern or out dated, because even though push button A/B telephones and black and white TV doesn’t sound terribly interesting to the young, the community and determination of the people of those days continually pull so many of my emotional cords.

A crime has been committed the trial and sentence has been decreed.
A prisoner paces and plots his escape.
He is successful and he is free from prison but is life really any better. Cold and lonely he finds comfort with a homeless man. Jack may not be imprisoned but is he truly free?
