Foundation supporting Neil Blower at the House of Commons

October 11, 2013 | Nick Taylor

The Foundation and a number of people who work with us will be supporting acclaimed author and former soldier Neil Blower at an event to be hosted in the House of Commons on Tuesday 15 October 2013.

Neil will give a lecture based on themes covered in his new novel – Dividing Lines – which tells the story of an advertising executive who is trapped in an elevator with a suicide bomber and the ensuing conversation that explores divisions between humanity and the conflict that arises from them. This thought-provoking stimulating discussion is to be hosted by the Rt. Hon. Hazel Blears MP.

Neil’s first novel – Shell Shock – was in a diary style by a British Army Veteran.  It chronicled the difficulties faced by the fictional squaddie as he desperately tries to combat post dramatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Author Neil served five years with the Royal Tank Regiment, taking part in operations in Kosovo and the 2003 invasion of Iraq. He has a degree in English literature and creative writing from the University of Salford.

Neil is a great supporter of the Foundation for Peace and contributes to our work and we look forward to supporting him at the House of Commons.
