About Frederick C Webb

Frederick C WebbI was born in the tiny Suffolk hamlet of Thurlow Green and after five years at the village school, I went to Grammar Shool in the historic silk weaving town of Sudbury in Suffolk about an hour or so north of London.

After a brief couple of years in the RAF I settled down for 17 years in the field of Banking the last twelve years being in the Middle East. It ended when the boss said, "I don't know what to do with you Webb!", but he paid me off well.

I married in Benghazi, Libya and subsequently got divorced in the capital city of Iran, Teheran. In fact my ex-wife is the inspiration for 'Moody Rooby', the teenage witch who lives just outside the mythical Lantern County!

Determined to never again be the subject of a 'boss', I struggled through 40 odd years in or on the fringes of the Toy Industry but it was writing that drew out my passions... so I began to write. However I very quickly found that both Toy shops and Publishers want "something similar to what is on the market" - heaven's forbid something original! This was totally contrary to my inner desires and contradicts my purpose in life - which is to provide something different.

The works I have written (available on this website!) are reflections of human life, the funny creatures we can be and how delightful we think we are. The views here are based on the belief that we can all be just a bit better.

If THIS can get a few of you to see life through these characters, and let one or two of them take you by the hand into fresh and new joys of life on this planet, then this site and this man, will fulfil their purpose.
