The Author And Historian Ron Gattway

Eye am an author/historian/publisher/satirist. Eye was born in Fulford Maternity Hospital because there was no room at the inn. Eye am the product of a mixed marriage: my mother was a woman, and my father was a man, so I had a difficult upbringing. Eye am also a racist, as eye am particularly keen on such races as the Grand National, the Monaco Grand Prix, and the Men's Olympic 100 metres.
Anyhow, eye graduated from the university of Bradford in 1993 with an M.A. in European Studies. Eye am a commentator on topical issues and developments in the field of sport and in the murky world of politricks. Eye have also appeared live on stage a few times as a stand-up comedian in London several years ago. Eye have been interviewed on Radio Five Live in London and also for Arts Extra on Radio Ulster in Belfast, but eye generally have been skirting around the periphery of the media.
Eye have written nineteen books, and it was revealed by the UK public lending right agency that my publications had been borrowed 1,531 times between July 1st 2009 and June 30th 2011. Oh and eye am a devotee of puzzles and quizzes, and eye have appeared on Channel Four's 'Fifteen To One' in December 1997 and on Channel Four's 'Countdown' in January 2006 when eye was narrowly defeated during a cliffhanger game that went down to a 'crucial conundrum'.
Eye am articulate and 'a bit opinionated', the latter arising out of my disdain for inequality and injustice. Eye am particularly offended by the accumulation of wealth, and as a practising Christian, eye see no connection whatsoever between luxury or wealth and the life and teachings of our Saviour, Jesus Christ.
