Inglewood Press was launched in 2016 with the publication of Neil Cole's comic (and cosmic) extravaganza, the novel God For A Day. This was followed by Coming Home Alone by Brian Metcalfe, a novel that has been called a love song to small-town Ontario. Inspired by my father, a WW II veteran, the story is of a young man returning home to a town based on St. Thomas, trying to get his life together after the dislocation of war. Screaming Secrets, a play by Alexander Matthews, dealing with family relationships and ecology (!) was next. Sandy attended Trinity College with me, and now makes his home in Britain.
I hope to use Inglewood Press as a platform to encourage new writing, and to facilitate the development of creative ideas of artists of all kinds. As well as book launches, the Press will be sponsoring a series of events. The first was the talk by Susan Brind Morrow, author of the beautiful The Dawning Moon of the Mind: Unlocking the Pyramid Texts. Plans are being developed to publish the first solo recording of the brilliant young pianist, Alexey Pudinov.
Other books in the works include a children's book based on the true experiences of an Israeli author, Zvi Mann; a book about ballet by the National Ballet's Ballet Master, Lindsay Fischer; and a new novel by Brian Metcalfe.
