Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Music, money, madness & other mysterious things. This is the karmic tale of the author, adventurer, martial artist & time traveller, Mark D Bishop; an objective look at his genetic ancestral past. It is DNA family history in fascinating detail, a journey through ancestral time, when industrious, creative hard work, births, marriages and burials focused around church life. The reader begins the excursion in a grocer's shop in upmarket Teddington on Thames, before being transported to Rochester on the Medway, with its Norman castle and cathedral; then along the Roman Fosse Way to Chatham, which once was host to the Royal Naval Dockyard. Woodworking trades, such as cart-wheelwrights & cabinetmakers are imbedded in the ancestral search, with Kentish & Sussex surnames;the Wrens who went to America, the Mitchells who were shipwrights. Ancestry often has a darker side too, necessitating a trip through the sordid conditions of 19th century 'madhouses' and a realisation that lovemaking never really changes.
