Guest Post – Geoff LePard – Tracing Your Ancestry

And so it ends, but with a bang, not a whimper. Helen Jones, who hosts Journey To Ambeth is my final stop on my blog tour. Today it’s ancestry and Bible stories tied up with tracing your DNA. If you’ve enjoyed the tour so far then please have a look at this last piece. It explains what underlies the whole of my latest book, My Father and Other Liars. Helen is also a prolific author and has a new book out. Time you checked that out too. Thank you Helen.

Journey To Ambeth

This week I’m starting with a guest post from pink-bearded lawyer, blogger and author extraordinaire, Geoff LePard. I had the pleasure of meeting Geoff at the Blogger’s Bash in August (when his beard was pink and he went by the name ‘Geoffle’ for the day – I’m sure he was thrilled when I told him that ‘jaffle’ was an Australian slang term for a toasted cheese sandwich!). Geoff has written two books – the first called Dead Flies and Sherry Trifle, and the second and new release called My Father and Other Liars. Journey To Ambeth is the last stop on his blog tour, and he’s written an interesting piece about our desire to explore our ancestral DNA, a key theme in his latest book. Take it away, Geoff!
