Terence J Goodchild born in the UK in Manchester in the north of England in a place called Higher Blackley. Went to Moss house Secondary school, my first job was a cobbler for a company called Timpson’s but soon got sick of that, and then a friend told me about his uncle’s company that worked in Construction so I joined, it was great the travel to all parts of the UK and meeting loads of people from different walks of life, then after ten years I had a bad accident and fell 85 feet off a building, nearly dying and being off work for two years I decided to change careers. I was always interested in cars, so started to work at a Ford dealership Called Oldham, Motor company in a place named Oldham in Lancashire, where I worked for 16 years. I went to Australia in 1981 for a holiday and decided this was the place to be. In 1983 I then opened my own business refurbishing vintage cars and boats. Then migrated to Melbourne, Australia in 1988 where I worked for Lada, Mercedes Benz, Kenworth trucks and then to the Italian company Iveco where I stayed for ten years and then came to Tasmania where I now live with my wife on a farm with our horses, and a dog. I have written 17 novels of fiction two published books are sold on Amazon, and Amazon Kindle in the UK, USA and Europe, they are sold in the UK through W H Smith, Waterstones, and Gardners. Folyles I love telling a story and hope the people who read them get pleasure out of what I write, some are based on true people I have known throughout my life the names have been changed of course, and a few truths added for spice
