The Singer Not The Song
Throughout my long life, I’ve been lucky to see many singers in person, starting way back in the 1950s when post-war austerity was still being felt throughout the country.

Forty Years On - Plus!
How many of us, singing that song in school assemblies all those years ago, could imagine ourselves forty years hence, let alone meeting up with our old school mates?

Passionate About The Past - Challenging Times In 1962!
By early 1962 when I was 23, I was still single, at a time when if you weren’t at least seriously ‘courting’ or engaged to be married, you were considered to be on the shelf.

A Youthful Revolution?
In preparation for an up-coming author talk, I’ve been giving much thought to that time between 1954 and 1960 when a momentous change seemed to be taking place.

Reviewing My Memories Of More Mobility and Manhattan
Last time I blogged about my time in the United States was about my very early days there and the Cuban Missile Crisis. Time to bring it more up to date, I think.

The Final Reckoning is an atmospheric, twisty thriller set in the peaceful (or maybe not so peaceful) Herefordshire countryside.
When Lindsay Ellis was a teenager, he stumbled across the dead body of her boyfriend Simon’s father, who had been battered to death.
Someone in the village knows who murdered Simon's father, and why.
Does the actual killer suspect Lindsay also knows the identity of the murderer, and is Lindsay now in great danger, too?

Two young friends go to war, but only one makes it home. Why is he not welcomed?
In modern-day Exeter, Ros discovers what happened,
but in doing so reveals long-held family secrets.
For better, or for worse?
"a gripping and well-researched WW2 story, full of heart and emotion. Ros didn't just hold her own future in her hands,
she held the destiny of the people that she now knew as friends."
What an incredible story.
I loved the songs, felt like I could hear
the music and adored the ending.
Truly a wonderful read."
