Don said: “Professor Colin Seymour Ure gave me support and advice in publishing my first book. I was never a particularly hard-working student as I was having such a great time doing other things. My girlfriend Kate (now my wife) was always amazed I even managed to get a 2.2 degree. By 2016, at the age of 70, I had only written a few articles so it was a big step to write 35,000 words and edit an 80,000 word book. Colin’s support was critical in getting me going.”
