The Truth Finder is a fantasy story for young adults. It is the story set in the fifth millennium, of Vrail, a young man who has to learn to live with the difficulties and joys of being able to read people’s minds.
The book was inspired by my wondering how the human race will develop, considering how much we have developed so far and taking account of the way we humans seem to almost self-destruct by fighting each other. It also looks at how we try to improve life.
The Truth Finder can be purchased from Amazon here

I have written two children’s books: The Green Book and Tiny Tyrannosaurus are chapter books that I originally wrote for my grandchildren. They are suitable for 4-11 year olds.
They love tales of magic, so I wrote the stories about an ordinary family but then added the magic. Each week I published a chapter on my blog and when I’d done about twelve, I looked to see if they would make a book. At that point I revised and rewrote chapters. Each chapter stands alone as a story so they are good books to read at night to children, but they do all build up to a longer story.
I’ve had lots of feedback while I was writing and many more people started to follow my writing blog. Now that they are published I’ve only left the first chapter of each book free to read because Amazon doesn’t allow you to publish anywhere cheaper than you have with them.
You can buy the books from Amazon. The Green Book is available here

The Mermaid on Amazon kindle[/caption]The Mermaid is a book of short stories for adults. The inspiration for each story was different. The first story in the book I wrote for the Chudleigh Phoenix short stort writing competition and I won third prize. That was so special.
Many of the other stories were inspired by attending a writing group. The Winsford Writers started off as a group of writers doing a creative writing course at Mid-Cheshire College. Sadly the course was cancelled but we decided we would carry on. We meet up once a week and take it in turns to lead the session, by bringing in something to write about. The great thing about the group is the feedback from the other writers and reading the rest of the group’s work. Each member of the group has different interests, so we are learning about lots of different genres and forms of writing. When we get together there’s always a lot of laughter and quite a bit of eating.
The Mermaid is available from Amazon. Click on the picture.
It costs £6 for the paperback and is free on 3, 4 & 5 April for the Kindle edition.
Nature’s Gold is a book of 65 poems, many of which are about nature and the beauty in the world, which is why I chose the title. Some of the poems are humorous observations about life and some more serious.
I love writing poetry. I like reading all the different forms and I like reading contemporary poems as well as traditional ones.
Nature’s Gold is £5.00 for a paperback version and free for the Kindle version on 3,4 and 5th April. It’s available from Amazon. Click on the picture.
