Interview with Llewelyn Pritchard

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing? I grew up on the Black Mountain north of Swansea, South Wales. I haven't really got a clue how this influenced my writing except I suppose, it instilled in me a great love of nature, adventure and the outdoors. I am the son of an elite collier and I would much rather take this opportunity to dedicate this great and pertinent poem to his memory:
"My father was a miner, He worked deep underground;
The rush of drams and clanking chains. They were his daily sounds.
He worked so far below the ground. Where coal was hewed by pick,
The work so hard and wages small He didn't dare go sick.
He crawled upon his belly. In drifts so low and narrow,
The wind it whistled down the shaft. It chilled him to the marrow.
He ate his food from a Tommy box, Shaped like a slice of bread,
While squatting down upon the ground, Where spit and crumbs were shed.
His water, it was in a Jack, to wet down clouds of dust,
That gathered daily in his throat and lungs. Where it formed a deadly crust.
We would listen for his footsteps, He then came into sight:
This man, our Dad, as black as black, just like the darkest night;
Right down his back white rivers ran amongst the dirt and grime,
But you cannot wash away blue scars. That you get down the mine.
Years now have passed. My father gone, But I am proud to say,
My Father was a miner, until his dying day."
by William Holden

When did you first start writing? In 2002.

What's the story behind your latest book? "Port Hope Simpson Off The Beaten Path" was born out of "The Port Hope Simpson Diaries" which I kept as an 18 year old VSO (Voluntary Service Overseas) probationary teacher from 1969-70 in the logging coastal community of Port Hope Simpson, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. In 2002 I was amazed to be invited out all-expenses paid to the Town's "Come Home" celebrations and decided to write "Port Hope Simpson Off The Beaten Path" to help in some small way put Sir Wilfred Thomas Grenfell's vision of tourism for the future prosperity of the Labrador communities into effect.

What motivated you to become an indie author? To write about research-based matters whilst having fun along the way.

How has Amazon contributed to your success? Well...I wouldn't say I have been a success. Anyway, I am unsure how that should be judged. Personally, I think there are much better things to spend your time thinking about.

What is the greatest joy of writing for you? It's more like hard work often trying to pull things together for the first time.

What do your fans mean to you? I don't think I have any and don't see why I should!!!

What are you working on next? 'The Labrador Development Company Limited' that founded Port Hope Simpson as a logging community in August 1934 when its first loggers' camp was 'well underway' according to the Company's own publicity.

Who are your favourite authors? Wilbur Smith

What inspires you to get out of bed each day? To just 'get on with it.'

Llewelyn's collection of books includes the series:
1. Illustrated Diaries about European Budget Short-Break Holidays
2. Photo Albums
3. The Port Hope Simpson Diaries 1969-70
4. Port Hope Simpson Mysteries
5. The Voluntary Service Overseas in Labrador
6. Travel Handbooks
Llewelyn has worked with The Honourable Canadian Senator William (Bill) Rompkey, on writing the history of the Voluntary Service Overseas (VSO) in Labrador.
This is what Bill wrote in his letter to the first get- together of the VSO teachers at Pateley Bridge, North Yorkshire 1-3 August 2003,
"...Labrador called to you and we are calling you now. I hope you will do what you can during these few days to fill in the Labrador record with your recollections and reflections. This too will be an important contribution to Labrador history. But mainly I hope you enjoy your time together.
Llewelyn Pritchard has done a remarkable job in bringing you together. He is as shrewd as Holmes and as persistent as Poirot. He could even be a great Canadian! We owe him more than we can say. It's his event and I know it will be successful. All good wishes. Bill Rompkey"
