Happy to mentor if anyone has aspirations in biography/memoir/travel/archive-based writing.
Any questions? Happy to answer through a thread here.
Peace and happy reading, Rohan
It'd be good if you can also add a page for Philip Jacks with basic dates etc: http://gwulo.com/node/add/person
How did you get to know of his story, and then want to write about it? Is there a family connection?
