Historical fiction author John G Smith is a British writer whose passion for travel and history are the inspiration for his autobiographies, original poetry, and novels. As a new British author he enjoys sharing stories of love, loss, feast, and famine from the far flung shores of Myanmar, to the beautiful dales of Derbyshire.
New: A Myanmar Love Story
John’s new novel ‘Eugene’ is a Burmese post-war love story which takes place just after the devastating conclusion of the second world war. Eugene returns from duty in Burma to find himself locked out from his family business, and must strive to make a new life for himself.
Eugene thrives in his career and personal life, but finds something is missing – his first love from Burma. This novel twists and turns through Eugene’s life, and will appeal to readers of new historical fiction, family sagas and post war novels.
This foray as a historical fiction author is not likely to be his last. John has already started work on a sequel to this compelling Myanmar love story.
Bookbag : “Eugene offers us a seamless meld of historical fiction and encyclopaedic knowledge that puts it above many debut novels; most definitely well worth a read.”
That’s Books & Entertainment : ” This is a well-written and very moving novel.”
