I finally found the one I was looking for. It is called Time to go Back and it was written for teenagers in the late 60's. But I've enjoyed many of your recommendations and would never have found them if I hadn't posted my original question. So thanks!

You've been around these boards long enough to know that promos are only permitted on MOA (which is where you usually post).

Hello there, your suspicions are actually spot on. Authors / self publishers, or indeed anyone else with a vested interest, are not supposed to post about their own stuff at all. It's never bothered me in the least, but it does upset many, and is actually against Amazon's own rules, so maybe delete the post when you can, just for an easy life. But - very best of luck with this anyway, it sounds good.

I hope you don't mind me mentioning my long short story, Samantha which tells the story of a young woman forced into prostitution. I am originally from that great city but have lived and worked in London since 1994. Kevin

Sixth Beatle: When Music Changed the World

I hope you don't mind me adding my own novel, 'Sixth Beatle' - set in Liverpool in the Seventies & Noughties, and very much reliant on the spirit of Liverpool for its narrative

You might also want to try June Francis who has published many novels, all set in Liverpool and/or Chester. They're very much in the Maureen Lee/Katie Flynn vein

It looks like you are after family / romance stuff, not too sure why I say that it just seems that way, but if you are after a variety of stuff, then Keith Dixon's A Private Lie is set partly in Liverpool; it's a crime / PI story where two of the baddies are Irish-Scouse builders-cum-criminals. Good story too.
The Private Lie

There is also a book set in the Wirral as opposed to Liverpool itself, and is about an Irish family moving here and the woes and the tears and the laughs (many many laughs for sure) that the family, but mainly the matriarch of course, enjoy or endure. Sadly, it's not yet on Kindle, but here is the link to the paperback etc.

Tom Kipper's Schooldays: Memories of an Irish Childhood in Liverpool

Making the Island

This is a contemporary novel set in Liverpool. It's a romance with a strong sense of place. It's funny and moving. Try it.

I came across a novel a few days ago but can't seem to locate it again! It was about Liverpool Teddy Boys, set in the 50's as one would expect. Does anyone on this strand know the name?

My Story: Building Beyond Big Brother Try this one. Okay, it's a bio, but Craig Philips (he of Big Brother fame and many TV do-it-yourself building and renovating programmes) is one really good racontuer and this story of his life and achievments makes excellent reading. He was. of course, born and bred in Liverpool and still resides there.
