R.I.P Dick Francis although I would love to sue your estate for the copyright infringment etc
that you committed against me I never wished you any physical harm.

listen to this section thank You:
On this page you are going to find out things about Dick Francis that you in all likelihood had no idea about. Dick Francis is not what the outside world of his readers might imagine him to be. You will also find out how things work with the big Media Companies, how they protect their authors irrespective of what those authors might have done in order to protect the profits they make via publishing such authors.
I used to be a fan of Dick Francis, like most of his readers; I wrongly presumed that Dick Francis had at least some of the good decent characteristics of the characters of the hero detectives that he produced within the pages in his novels. Unfortunately, Dick Francis has proved to me that he is nothing like the hero's he writes about, more like the characteristics of the villains in his novels. Greedy, sly, selfish, devious and an outright thief of my personal copyright.
Having said the above it is possible that Dick Francis's late wife Mary Francis may have been responsible for writing his Novels up to the point of her departure from this world, in which case it would have been Mary Francis rather than Dick Francis who was behind the theft of my copyright, either way Dick Francis and his publishers are responsible as it is Dick Francis's name on his novels irrespective of whoever wrote them, and as his publishers were informed shortly after publishing the novel which infringed upon my copyright, and as they have done nothing about it, this makes them also responsible for the continuation of the copyright infringement committed against me.
Big media companies such as Pearson who own the publishers who publish the Dick Francis novels, can as they have in my case, totally ignore the copyright infringements of their authors, even when as in my case it is a completely provable fact that their author Dick Francis has committed a copyright infringement, and they have been notified of the facts.
If you have suffered copyright infringement or have a story that you would like to exchange link with this page please contact me.

This was Natasha my beautiful daughter.
'Come to Grief ' by Dick Francis is the novel
which Dick Francis based part of my life and that of my family on.
How would you react to what Dick Francis did had she been
your beloved daughter, and that you had just lost her to cancer.
Close your eyes and just image.
Now you have seen what Natasha looked like, I hope you will understand when I say that because Dick Francis based his book 'Come to Grief' on part of our lives, so you will understand when I say that to find a huge part of her life/our lives fictionalized in ‘Come to grief’ was so horrendously painful and such a shock to me that I am still traumatize from it to this day!
Natasha was/is not a fictional character and never will be!
This is my last correspondence to Dick Francis.
