My new book, ‘Sedella - The story of a Spanish village’, is now available as an EBook and paperback from Amazon - click here

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. Sedella is one of the pueblos blancos, white villages, of the Axarquía, a hilly region in Málaga province. This is where I have lived since 1994.

Each of the historical chapters is in two parts. The first part is a fairly factual account of the relevant time, though some of these facts may be slightly altered in time etc. to fit the story. The second part of the chapter is a story set around these historical events.

In the 21 chapters, I have tried to give a picture of what the village would be like at different times, for example under Roman occupation, under Moorish occupation, during the long years of Franco’s dictatorship, what the village was like when I came here in 1994 and what it is like now.
