I have been fortunate enough to be featured this week in Authors Showcase and my memoir is about a visit to the American Cemetery at Omaha Beach in Normandy.
I hope you enjoy it and it resonates with you. Please if you get the opportunity make a visit to this very moving place just on Omaha Beach where the soldiers landed.

Fred’s Blog (fd81.net) has been around for six years. It started as an editorial feedback tool for the author Robert Fear (nickname Fred) as he worked on the second edition of his first memoir Fred’s Diary 1981: Travels in Asia. To attract more contributors he ran his first travel story competition in which entries were published on the blog. These competitions continued for four years and resulted in three editions of the Travel Stories and Highlights books (2017/2018/2019). Last year Robert ran an Authors Showcase and another book resulted – 40 Memorable Life Experiences (from 21 authors, writers and poets). In between he has also hosted a number of guest blogs and promoted two other books that he self-published – Exclusive Pedigree: My life in and out of the Brethren (his father’s memoir) and more recently his own memoir – Summer of ’77: Beaches, bars and boogie nights in Ibiza. At the moment he is running another Authors Showcase with the subject of ‘Inspirational True Stories’. This is open until the end of September.
