About Me

Steve Dyster has embarked on a new career. Teacher for twenty-three years, freelance editor, data in-putter with the NHS, Sustrans Schools officer in Stoke-on-Trent, geriatric stay-at-home Dad, joint founder of, doing the housework, published author of articles and a cycling guidebook; just published (Sept. 2017) his first set of short stories later in 2017. Believe it or not, there is not a single mention of a bicycle, tricycle or any other such-like means of conveyance in The Navigator.

As you can see, I like beer. History, walking, cycling and lots of other interests get in the way of family life, to is it the other way round? Favourite books; The Good Soldier Svejk, and of the Flashman stories, The Woodlanders, Around the World on a Bicycle, First Love .... Music; Vaughan Williams, Elgar, Stax, Motown, Doo-Wop, Jimmy Shand, stuff from my youth ...

I have a wife and son who love swimming, surfing, coasteering; Larry the Lurcher and I do not, but he can swim - even if rather desperately. I intend to learn.
