THANK YOU for coming to this page here on OurRebekah. I could not let this website be published without explaining a few things.

When Rebekah's friends set up OuRebakeh I snatched a firm hold and appointed myself as an ambassador for Ronald McDonald Houses.  YES, my family has been happy to support Ronald for the past thirty years and will go on doing so for the rest of our lives.  I must, however, confess to a selfish motive for what I am doing.

Since the loss of our much loved daughter my wife, my family and I have been showered with love, so much love from so many. Without that love I, personally, would have found life hard to go on with. By doing what I am doing here in OurRebekah I am selfishly giving myself something to do, to fill my time and to turn my loss into something positive. YES, I love, admire and respect Ronald McDonald House Charity - of course I do but what I am doing is also for myself.  I hope you understand. I could not allow this website to be published without explaining that.

Now I need to talk about the stories and the books I write.  Up to this point my writing has been for enjoyment, as a hobby but that is going to have to change.

I have pushed myself forward to help those who are seeking to support Ronald McDonald. Nobody asked me to do this I appointed myself.  My time comes free of charge but every day there are costs to be met:  postage, fuel in the car, printing ink, paper, buying meals for people I seek to get involved, buying this website domain and hosting.  I must cover these myself, NOTHING can be taken away from Ronald.

If someone were to come and push 10 in my hand and say That's towards your expences I would have to say NO. That 10 belongs in Ronald's pocket and NOT mine.  It would be so wrong of me to accept it.  I have to cover anything I spend myself.  I have to do something to earn the cash I need.

The obvious way to do this is to start selling my books and stories. Right now they sit on Amazon and now and then someone buys an e-book.  I have not been bothered about sales, it is the writing that is fun but I am sitting on the potential to find all the money I need to fund myself within the work I want to do without taking a single penny away from Ronald.

I am not going to tell you my books are fantastic, they are not. J K Rowling or Roald Dhal I am not but priced as e-books on Amazon at 99p or 1.99p no matter how much rubbish you think they are that's not bad value.

Some Amazon authors sell tens of thousands of e-book downloads every month, that's nice but one hundred a week would meet my needs and cover the costs I anticipate.

In here asking you to read one of my books YOU MUST NOT do so with 99p or 1.99 you would have given to Ronald.  It would hurt Ronald so much if anyone thought I was using OurRebekah to promote myself as a third rate author. I really must make that and my position clear.

So with that out of the way let me tell you about my books and give what I think is a fair critique for each.  If you then want to read one that would be very kind.  David - Beck's Dad

I would personally rate this with two out of five stars.

If you are one of my former students this is the one for you to read.  If you think you were bad at school then see what an arrogant little S**T Sir was !

This is my schoolboy autobiography from my first teacher, aged five - Mrs Attwood aka The Atom Bomb to the summer of 1967 when an arrogant teenager walked out the school gates for the last time and took on the world.

THINGS WERE DIFFERENT IN MY DAY is available as an e[-book on Amazon for 1.99 - one of my more expensive books !



This is a book I really like so I am going to be arrogant and give it four stars.  I would like to give it five stars but one has to temper arrogance with modesty a bit !

Arrogance is the theme throughout this book. This is the second of my autobiographies and tells of the two years I spent on leaving school taking on the world of business.

If you have 1.99 to waste, I mean spend, it is available as an e-book download.


This is something I wrote for my son's 12th birthday.  I like it, not sure if he did.

It was the first book I ever had published.

Peter inherits from his great-grandfather a pen. When he writes with that pen it transports him to what ever time and place he is writing about.

If you know a twelve year old you may like to splash out 99p for him/her to adventure through time and space.


This is a bit of rubbish ! Spend 1.99 with Amazon and see just how big a load of old rubbish it is !

The teacher training college I attended was located in Bletchley Park, the famed home of the code breakers.  NO I DID NOT TRAIN AS A TEACHER DURING WORLD WAR TWO, I was in Bletchley Park between 1971 and 1974.  I did know the park well and have set my story there.

If you are feeling VERY generous and don't mind reading rubbish this is the one for you.


This is another load of rubbish but it will only cost you 99p to download it from Amazon.

When I wrote this I wasn't so much trying to tell a story but to go on an ego trip.  As I went on that ego trip I wanted to inspire my readers to make their own trip through tie and space to, three trips actually, to places and times they would like to visit.

In the story I use quantum physics to explain that tie travel is perfectly possible.  I do not profess to understand anything about quantum mechanics but it is useful tool for a writer to play around with.



I am going to give this book four stars, perhaps it does not deserve so many but I like it. It will cost you 99p with Amazon to find out if I am being generous to myself or over generous !

I popped a little survey on Twitter and asked my 16k followers what genre of story they enjoyed reading the most.  At the top of the list came historical drama with crime drama close behind. I had never written anything like that but decided to give it a try.  Within a few paragraphs I was in love with the genre.  I will most definitely be writing more case files for Detective McDermott.


So what's next ?

Oh yes my over priced two short stories available from Amazon at 99p.

The Great Pretender is another play around with quantum mechanics and time travel.

The Diary Of A Slave Owner was inspired when some family research turned up a John Ashford who had been forced to sell his slaves when Britain abolished slavery.  It set me thinking that we should re-introduce slavery, not the way my ancestor knew it but a more modern version.   If you download and read this book of two short stories I think you will actually agree that Britain should use slavery again !



This is one I like so I am going to give it four stars. Spend 2.99 - Oooohhh that is expensive isn't it - and you can read it yourself as an Amazon download.

Flight Sergeant Billy was my father's older brother. He was killed just weeks before the end of World War Two.  I never knew him but his memory was kept alive within our family, his picture was always on the wall and I felt I knew him. Later when I wasresearching our family's history I was able to find out a lot of information about Billy's last flight.  I have taken the information, the family legend and my own imagination to write this imaginary interview.  I hope you find it of interest.

So there we go. Some of the books I have written, there are more but a few to be going on with.  If you fancy a read - be my guest.  David
