Roddy Haswell

Roddy Haswell

Lynton’s very own Roddy Haswell, master of word and nonsense.

Tired of all that doom and gloom?

Ready for some fun with words, and thoughtful antidotes to the propaganda poison? Roddy Haswell brings his over-70-years of life experience to your aid!

He’s a Big Kid, interested in anything and everything, and desperate to share with you some poems, short stories and novels that will bring a smile to your face and offer a fresh view on the world. Following a career in the pioneering days of computing, he has retrained in many ways, finally discovering, via an A* in English Literature and teaching English to children and non-English speakers, that writing is his passion.

After spending 16 months living a travelling no-fixed-abode lifestyle with his lovely wife Dawn, he now lives in beautiful Lynton, North Devon. ‘Enjoy Life!’ is his motto; so don’t delay, and brighten your day, by sampling one of his refreshing (and maybe challenging!) offerings.
