I think a hell of a lot more than a few know who I am. If anybody had asked me what my name was I would not have denied it, unlike other people. I pride myself on my honesty and integrity. A lot worse has been said on these boards than I have ever said. All I ask of people is that if you don’t know me then, please, don’t judge me.

A hell of a lot more than a few know what he's like as well.

As for honesty and integrity he has no concept of that whatsoever, when I phoned him about what he had wrote about me, he denied it, said it wasn't him and threatened to call the police because he said I was threatening him. How honest is that then? Don't forget he told Baldy he was 6ft 4ins and 18stone.

I think it's easy to judge him, he's a lying nasty little man with a chip on his shoulder and a mean streak in him a mile wide.

Decka Kennedy was a good guy and I was sad to hear that he passed on. He stood up for what is right and my thoughts go out to his family :(

I seem to have my own personal censor, aren't I lucky?
I am not going to use these boards for a slanging match Cisco knows who tells the truth. Watch out for my family book. It will contain the truth and if anybody does not like it then sue me if they dare. It's about time the truth was known as I am sick and tired of taking all the blame. Those who blindly stand by him may feel betrayed later. If anybody wants advance copies let me know. that's all I have to say on the matter.

Every one is entitled to an opinion anna. In answer to yours there are lots and lots of books out there by ordinary people recounting their lives. I agree that if the book is just a everyday story about family life then the only people that would be interested in reading it would be future ancestors. I have said on another thread that I actively encourage people to write their life stories for future generations, to put information on the back of family photos. These can be treasured memories for the future. The only thing I say is that the book must be the truth as it would be pointless to do otherwise because then you will be changing history.

I have had a few books published, the available ones can be seen on amazon.com. The current book that I am writing and half way through is taking a lot of thought and trauma from myself. It is not a hang out the dirty washing book but a biography of growing up from the fifties to the present day. My publisher has shown a lot of interest in it already. I think I have some contribution to make to all the people out there who may have suffered the same as me. Books like mine can help. Just look at the bookshelves in your local bookshop. They have hundreds of like books. I have been advised that if I tell the truth that I can't be sued.

I would like to be a famous best-selling author, but I doubt I ever will, who knows. In the meantime I write what I think people would like to read.

I run a writers group called ‘The Bronte’s Write Hand’ to give advice on writing. If anbody is interested give me a line.

The above book was a reprint of the book South Shields Crimes and Mysteries that was published in 2000. Due to demand it was republished under the title "South Shields Murders & Misdeameanours" with extra stories added. Included in both books were crime and murder from 1900 to about 1929. If your ancestor died before 1900 then it will not be in the book.
During research for the book I found that a lot of suicides were very suspect, but in those days nobody bothered to much with investigating the poor. When I finish the project I am on now I would like to write a book on everyday life amongst the poor and destitute of South Shields from 1900 to about 1930. I would like it to be a hard hiting one showing the dark side of our ancestors lives. Maybe we can then appreciate what we have now.

Hi,
I'm a student on the Drama and Scriptwriting course at Northumbria University and for an assessment I've been asked to write a play about something that has happened locally as a hypothetical commission for the 'Live!' theatre.
I asked my Mam about the local history of South Shields and she mentioned the Torso in the Tank story. She also mentioned that the man convicted might not be guilty. The play only has to be 20 minutes long so I don't want to have too many scene changes. The story really interested me so I googled it and stumbled across this thread. There doesn't seem to be much more information on the internet about the case so it would be great if any of you could help me out. I've never written about a true story before and I'm only just starting my research at the minute. If it turns out to be a good enough script I am going to adapt it to become a short film. I don't mean to offend anybody by writing it and of course I won't use real names.
Things like the minutes to the trial would be great... assuming you can :? and if anyone knows if that programme made about it is still knocking around??

thanks guys and girls
Catey x
