SOME OF MY FAVOURITE EDITORS

With a background of collaboration with more than sixty newspaper and magazine editors over many years, not including current publishing on-line editors, I must admit to reflecting on their differences. On the whole, I found them most agreeable, expecting copy to be filed on time and supported by good, sharp images, difficult sometimes when sending illustrated features for weekly columns.  

One such editor, Brian Lynch whose colourful life was celebrated at his funeral service last week, was one of the very best.  He was a good friend and efficient editor, who himself wrote his famous Lynch Lines for the local rag for decades, as well as producing a dozen books filled with humour and fun.




We shall all miss Brian and his work for the local press and his non-fiction books and I would not have missed the opportunity of saying goodbye to a perfect gentleman of Fleet Street.
