How Not to Run a Hotel, How Not to run the Same Hotel, The Brick Monster (children’s), all under the name Harry Pope, together with Hot Vegas and Hot Hits by Harry Blue, these five are available online. However, Harry is also a travel writer, featuring so far mainly the UK, but also writing about other destinations, especially favourite locations Madeira and the USA. He and his wife Pam love their cruises, and Harry writes about these as well.
Harry is a member of the Society of Women Writers and Journalists (no, he didn’t have to lie about his age, they admitted men as associates in 2004) so has his press card issued by them, as well. He is also a member of the International Travel Writers Alliance, writing articles for his local 20,000 print run Eastbourne ethemagazine, regular features for the 60,000 member web site www.sixtyplusurfers.co.uk, and to crown his distinguished travel writing, he started writing some time ago for www.silvertraveladvisor.co.uk, becoming a featured advisor, and they now have a very close association with Age UK, so every single travel revue that Harry writes is available to the five and a half million people who access their site annually.
He started writing gags in the 1980s for Who Do You Do (London Weekend t.v.), also Radio 4’s Weekending, but stopped after a day job career change. Moving to the south coast in 2003, he joined his local writers’ circle, becoming competition secretary, newsletter editor, and chairman for two years.
Harry and Pam celebrated their Ruby anniversary in 2013 (her mother said it wouldn’t last).
He is the only person licensed by Eastbourne Borough Council to be a sight-seeing guide, with three walks during the Summer – please see www.harrythewalker.com
