Between Dreams: Difficult Paths and Dangerous Places FREE

Steve Harvey's memoirs Between Dreams: Difficult Paths & Dangerous Places were published by Fledgling Press in November 2016. The Irish writer Eoin Colfer called it 'A memoir that reads like a swashbuckling novel.'

Steve Harvey was educated at St Charles’ Primary, Gosforth, St Cuthbert’s Grammar and St Mary’s College, Newcastle.

He taught English at St John Fisher, Lobley Hill, before joining Northumbria Police, in which he spent twenty years.

In 2003 he answered an advert in The Sunday Times for volunteer teachers for northern Iraq, and in January 2004 flew out there with another retired teacher, returning in May. He made his own way back there in the September via Turkey, Georgia, Armenia & Azerbaijan.

From 2005-2008 he was Development Officer for the charity, Children in Scotland, setting up and running the national ‘Children, Fathers & Fatherhood’ Project in Scotland.

In 2008 he was Safety & Security Officer for an NGO in South Sudan.

Here he talks about his time in Sudan.
