I'm not a writer but a storyteller and a gardener. I love mountains, trees and animals.
I believe that storytelling is an art form; some people like the pictures, some don't; that's how it is with art.
I can't help what my characters do and say because they have minds of their own, but please be reassured that no children or animals were hurt in the creating of these stories.
My home is in Northern England, close to the great North Yorkshire moorland; a place of wild hills and heather. I love walking and I'm a trained horticulturalist; I have a passion for horses, donkeys, cats and, quite honestly, anything living that needs a helping hand.
If you love a gritty family saga in a beautiful setting, then Northern Spirit is one for you. It is the first in the series and introduces the Keldas family and follows, in the main, the life of David the eldest son.
The Last Boat To Nowhere is the second novel in the Keldas series. It starts in 1974 and follows David Keldas through to the next decade. It is out on Kindle now and in paperback. Although this is the second in the series it can stand alone and be read as a taster.
Keld Head: The Keeper of The House is the controversial prequel and completes the trilogy of the Keldas family saga. Read it first or read it last. It begins in 1903 and follows the life of Robert, Freddie and Elizabeth Keldas in Edwardian England. This is a romance like no other as we journey through Lakeland during wartime and peace.
The World of Jamie Keldas is a new three book series. The first in the series being Jamie:Through Monochrome. Digital version only.
The second is Jamie: Raining Kats and Dogs.
The third to be released later next year.
This is a spin off novel from the Keldas series and features Jamie Keldas and his battle with trying to be normal.
All of the Keldas family series are available in paperback from Amazon should you wish to have and hold a real book or buy as a gift for a friend.
If you enjoyed reading any of my novels please will you leave a short review on Amazon for me and, especially for you, I will wave my arms about and jump up in the air and shout: Whoo Hoo!
To Paint a White Horse is now available on Kindle. It is a quirky English mystery. It will depend on its success whether I put it in print.
I wrote it with a view to being a light-hearted story with human interest. The characters are all likeable, especially Jonathan Miller, the marathon runner. This is a contemporary novel and is unique in its subject matter in the restoration of a massive chalk horse.
