M.D. Blackburn began putting pen to paper in March 2009, having never written before. He often wonders where the words come from. He now writes short personalized stories, poems, religious and political comments, autobiographies, sports reports, and joke books. He ranges from poetry to prose as he ponders life’s past experiences, taking the reader back into a time when life was simple. He examines his own childhood and encourages readers to explore their own nostalgia. His poetry and prose are intended to hold up a mirror. Readers may see themselves in his words and feel a ripple of surprise when they see where life’s path has led. His work is enjoyed by readers in the UK, America and New Zealand.
Read on, question your own perceptions, find yourself… and, most of all, enjoy.

The Bowling Detective
By Michael D. Blackburn
Is a story real murder story changed into fiction such that retired detective – Mick Schwartz - is kept occupied. He tries to solve cases with a little help from his friends at the local police station. Somehow he sees things that others do not.
The original murder took place on Cut Throat Lane, the name of the road when the story was passed around in the late 1940s. The road is now called ….in Leicester.
No we are not going to tell you, here are some clues at the Leicester end. A new church was built in the 1950s; there were allotments on the right; a smelly pond under a large tree on the left, with newts, frogs and all sorts of creepy things; we kept these in jam jars: for our mothers.
