About Les

Les Bowles (Waterside Writers) Photo

Les retired after commencing a working life in the Royal Navy, followed by a career in the Construction Industry, (heavy equipment field.) He writes mainly as a hobby and is not yet looking for another career.

He prefers to explore the comedic aspect, aware that humour, like beauty, might only be in the eyes of the beholder, but looks for comedy in any situation: it’s the way you tell it!

His pieces are normally short but he has a longer story on the stocks which really only needs the writer's discipline to complete – and that is this year's main scribbling task.

This is a "homework" piece Les wrote in reponse to the meeting on 16th October 2014 on the theme of Nature Writing (pdf) - to read or download.
