More About the Author

Bill Kirton was a university lecturer in French before taking early retirement to become a full-time writer. He's won two 2011 Forward National Literature Awards - 'The Sparrow Conundrum' was the overall winner of the Humor category and 'The Darkness' was runner up in the Mystery category. His historical mystery, 'The Figurehead', was long-listed for the 2012 Rubery Book Awards.

He's produced material in many different media. His radio plays have been broadcast on BBC Radio 3 and 4 and the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. His stage plays have been performed in Aberdeen, Edinburgh and the USA and he's been the visiting artist to the Theatre Department of the University of Rhode Island on four separate occasions. There, he directed stage plays, gave classes on creative writing and theatre, performed in revues and translated three plays by Molière for public performance, one of which won a BCLA prize. Material from his Edinburgh Festival revues was broadcast on the BBC, ITV and French television.

He's also been a TV presenter and a voice-over artist and his scripts for corporate and educational DVDs and videos have won awards in the UK and USA. He's been a Royal Literary Fund Writing Fellow at the Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen, and the universities of Dundee and St Andrews.

Most of his novels are set in the north east of Scotland. 'Material Evidence', 'Rough Justice', the award-winning 'The Darkness', 'Shadow Selves' and 'Unsafe Acts' all feature DCI Jack Carston. 'The Figurehead' is a historical novel set in Aberdeen in 1840. The award-winning 'The Sparrow Conundrum', is a spoof spy/crime novel also set in Scotland. His comic fantasy novella, 'Alternative Dimension' satirises online role-playing games.

His short stories have appeared in the Crime Writers' Association annual anthology in 1999, 2005 and 2006. IN 2010, one was also chosen for the 'Best British Crime Stories, Vol. 7' anthology edited by Maxim Jacubowski.

His non-fiction output includes 'Brilliant Study Skills', 'Brilliant Essay', 'Brilliant Dissertation', 'Brilliant Workplace Skills' and 'Brilliant Academic Writing. He also co-wrote 'Just Write' with Kathleen McMillan.

He writes books for children. 'Rory the Dragon and Princess Daisy' was published as a tribute to his great niece, Daisy Warn, who lived for just 16 weeks. Proceeds from its sales go to a children's hospice in South-West England. 'The Loch Ewe Mystery' is a stand-alone novel for children aged 7-12 and he's preparing a series about a grumpy male fairy called Stanley who lives under a cold, dripping tap in his bedroom.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book isn't for those seeking a course-specific guide. However, it does cover all possibilities that could occur during the dissertation process, or writing a report in general, including how to submit a proposal and how to choose a topic. There are useful tips for those (like me) studying exact sciences with tips about experiments and how to deal with data. The book is clear and well written and would make a good companion for doing any report or project, not just a dissertation.

...for my niece who graduated successfully - I've asked for it back, as I've just begun a degree with OU.
