Stephen Wynn, Stephen Wynn Author of both fictional and non-fictional books

Hello, and thank you for visiting my site. My name is Stephen Wynn. I am an author of both fictional and non-fictional books. My fictional works are in the genre of Crime fiction/murder mystery. My non fictional works are either biographical or of a military history nature.

Take a look around the site and see what you think. Read extracts from some of my books, find out who if anybody some of the characters are based on. Take a look at my blog, which usually relates to politics or some kind of social wrong doing somewhere in the world. There are also some tips for budding authors and writers in general. Feel free to contact me with any questions you might have or comments you want to make about the site.

Enjoy!

 

Ben Salfield

by Stephen Wynn on July 12, 2021

For those of you who do not know, or who have not heard of Ben Salfield, let me tell you, he is quite a character. To check out all of the different things that he is and does, look him up on Wikipedia or on his website www.bensalfield.com.

His main claim to fame, I think he would agree, is as a world class lutenist, which has seen him perform as a soloist and an accompanist in countries all over the world.

I was fortunate enough to make his acquaintance whilst researching a book that I wrote entitled Duelling Through The Ages. As it turned out, in August 1994, Ben took part in the last reported duel with swords to have taken place in the UK, after he challenged another chap over a matter of honour concerning comments made about a young lady. It was a real old fashioned blood and thunder type duel. There was no pretending, or going through the motions, both men were after blood. Ben won the duel with the other fellow ending up in hospital to have his wounds treated, although thankfully for him they were not life threatening.

The young lady’s honour was upheld, not that it was ever in question, thanks to the thoughtfulness, kindness and consideration of the man that is, Mr Ben Salfield.

I thank you one and all for your time, and wish you all, a very good night.
