A L McAuley...
Living in the historic village of Hillsborough in County Down, Northern Ireland, Albert McAuley has tried his hand at most things in life, finally discovering his undoubted talent for writing after being encouraged and inspired by his long term partner Helen whom he describes as ‘a very strong and determined woman.’
He recalls receiving at the age of 14 an end of term report that stated: “Albert has potential, but must do better.” Unknown to his parents, he returned the report to the school along with a note, saying, “Thank you for your comments. I think the same could be said of all of us.” He left school the following year for a career in engineering.
‘Has potential and must do better’ has been his maxim ever since.
“With Helen’s belief, influence and guidance I feel that ‘potential’ may finally be close to being reached.”
