Biography:

A freelance journalist and author, with 74 books, many articles, is a ghostwriter, innumerable crosswords and puzzles published, whilst also compiling and marketing quizzes. These books have mostly been on the subject of the origins of place-names and as part of the publicity Anthony has been interviewed several times on the radio and has been privileged to be the guest speaker at several events. Fascinated by the development of language and etymology, I am based in Tamworth Staffordshire and chairman of Tamworth Literary Festival.

Happy to travel and available at short notice.
