Hi! My name is Ian Kingsley, and I'm an author and broadcaster. Thanks for taking the time to visit my website.
I live in Bournemouth, on the south coast of England, and that is why both my broadcasting and writing have connections to this area.
This website aims to tell you about my books and to provide information about my weekly radio show on the community Christian radio station: 90.1 Hope FM.
My novels are set in real locations: two in the Bournemouth and Christchurch areas, and one in worldwide locations from Bath to California. My Christian-based works aim to help close the gap between science and religion. I worked in the fields of science and technology for many years, and I no longer find any contradictions between science and my belief in God. To me, God created the universe which science seeks to explore and understand. If science ever achieves their long-sought Theory of Everything, that will be the time they finally 'get it'!
You can join me on social media linked from the icons above, but be aware my principal choice of these is Twitter, where I tweet daily as @authorkingsley. Please join my 35,000+ followers there so we can connect. I have also included a Tweets page on this website so you can even see my latest tweets directly from this website - without even having a Twitter account.
Please note that I give random shout-outs and dedications to my Twitter followers on my radio show: particularly new followers. Or, if Facebook is more your thing, follow me there (as /author.ian.kingsley) to see copies of those tweets.
What Am I Writing Now?
It seems Inevitably I get asked this. The truth is that because I am primarily focusing on the preparation and presentation of my Christian radio show, I seldom get the time for general writing now. Radio is my priority. Bringing together inspiring words and great songs, both Christian and secular. I only walked into the studio in 2016 willing to volunteer for some technical behind-the-scenes stuff, but that was not what they wanted. The wanted presenters. The rest, as they say, is history. A new priority for me: my weekly INSPIRE radio show. And a new interest. I went fishing to the studio looking for a diversion and they caught me and gave me a diversion. But one I find both challenging and fulfilling. As a Christian it gives me a perfect outlet to do my part in the Christian ministry of spreading the Word. I also feel it is the way God wants me to move at present. And when the boss says move ...
It takes at least a year to write a novel, and that's if you can find the time for intensive activity. This means it's just not worth the time investment unless you can be sure of a best-seller. Given my radio work, it would take much longer. So here's the deal! Please buy my novels, tell your friends about them, and write great reviews on Amazon if you like them, so bringing them to 'notice'. I don't have the time or inspiritation to work on that. If you, as readers, can help with that - and IF it is to be - then I will find the time to write fiction again some time in the future. It's not that I haven't had some great reviews. And if you live in the 90.1 Hope FM broadcast area you also LIVE in the area some of these novels are set. (Please check out the 'BOOKS' tab.) You will reconise the scenery! You see? We need each other to move forward in this! Thanks a lot.
