COMING SOON - THE QUEEN'S AGENT

My latest book will be out soon, and is my first full length novel. It is a historical spy story set at the time of Elizabeth I during the build up of the Spanish Armada. The story is set in London, Santiago de Compostela and along the Pilgrim’s Way, as well as France and the Low Countries. The politics of the time and Walsingham’s spy network, and the hunt for a mole within it, are interwoven with the search of an illegitimate son for his father

 

 

SEDELLA - the story of a Spanish village

 

My new book, ‘Sedella - The story of a Spanish village’, is now available as an EBook and paperback from Amazon - click here. I also now have copies available to sell at home for locals.

This is a new venture for me, as it is not a book of mystery and crime stories, but is a romantic historical novel about an Andalucían village, from prehistoric times to the present day.

My next book, East Side Stories, is now available. These short stories are all set in the east side of the UK, from Hadrian’s Wall to the Thames.

MALAGA MYSTERIES

Malaga Mysteries will soon be available. This is a compilation of ‘Andalucían Mysteries’ and ‘More Andalucían Mysteries’, plus 2 more stories, and is being published by Matador. The plan is to sell it in the UK market, and it will be available through large bookshops such as Waterstones, Smiths etc. It can also be purchased directly from http://www.troubador.co.uk/book_info.asp?bookid=3245

This is a new venture for us, prompted by the fact that Createspace (who the paperbacks have been published by in the past) does not have a UK supply chain, and so bookshops won’t stock them. So we are hoping to reach a wider audience with the books, and have them in libraries as well.

 

NEW BOOK NOW OUT - TWISTED TALES

 

 

 

This new book of short stories, the 3rd book, was published in April 2015. It is available on all amazon platforms as both an EBook and a paperback. For more information see the book's page on this website.

 

 

 

 

MISTERIOS DE ANDALUCÍA

The Spanish translation of 'Andalucían Mysteries' was launched at Culture Week in Sedella in February 2015, with the collaboration of the mayor of Sedella, Francisco Abolafio Rodriguez. Also in the photo, on the right, is Francisco Crespillo Ruiz, the deputy mayor. It was translated by Janice Onwuzor, a woman from Madrid who is studying at university in the UK at present. She has managed to find time to do this around her studies, for which we are grateful.This version is available from amazon as a kindle version and also as a paperback. We are also beginning to place it in some bookshops, please see the book's own page for more information.

NOCH MEHR ANDALUSISCHE GESCHICTHEN

This German translation of 'More Andalucian Mysteries' was translated by Ursula A Feiler, who got in touch with us after reading in SurDeutsch that we were looking for a translator. It was published in December 2014. She has done an excellent job, and the book is available from amazon as a kindle version and as a paperback. We are also beginning to distribute it to various bookshops, see the book's own page on this website for more information.
