BIG NEWS from Guardbridge Books!

The new line will continue with A HORRID DEED: The Life and Death of Joe the Quilter by Robert Neil Smith. This book is a historical true crime story, that examines life (and death) of the craftspeople in northern England during the Industrial Revolution. Through the story of the brutal murder of a poor old man - a man who was admired by his community but like so many common folk ignored by the wider world - the book pieces together the struggles, joys, and passions of the forgotten masses at a time of great social change. At the time, this case went unsolved, but the investigations here conclude who committed the murder and what became of them. Dr. Smith is the author of An Evil Day in Georgia, and many book reviews. Look for his book in the spring of 2021.

I have tutored hundreds of students, including many international students, in improving their writing skills. While History is my primary field of knowledge, I tutor writing across a broad range of Liberal Arts subjects; History, English, Politics, Classics etc. Moreover, I tutor at every level from GCSE to PhD. There is no magic formula to tutoring, therefore I assess individual needs and work together with my students to eliminate errors and build on their strengths to achieve their writing goals. Click below to find out more on how that will work for you.

If you need someone to help with your writing, you have come to the write place.

Neil gave realistic but friendly criticism and always tried to find solutions to my problems.

The telling of this story … exposes the death penalty’s imperfections even as it calls into question the veracity of a woman’s confession, later recanted, that once brought her within a stones throw of the state’s electric chair.

Neil was a truly calming figure during the hectic time that I was doing my undergraduate dissertation, always there in my time of need!
