The City Of New Beginnings
19 April 2021
A perfect place to make a start… where the pilgrims left for America, and Australia… where great explorers circumnavigated the globe from… from where Darwin departed for his world shaking, ideology-quaking discoveries… from where Thomas Cooke went abroad… home of Raleigh and Drake and Admiral Lord Nelson… where Napoleon turned around… where the Spanish Armada met their new place in the pecking order… And a friendly, laid back, sunny city. My home town, seen from the seaside, as the first rays of the sun bask the buildings in a warm glow.

Peter van der Walt is a fiction author, although you may find some non-fiction and the odd essay out there. Fans can find his newsletter, posts, updates and developments at Currently, he is hard at work on his next story. When not writing, he has far too many interests to reasonably keep up with. He lives with his partner in Devon, England.
