‘Don’t Hassle Me, I’m Local,’ tells of the inevitable changes mass tourism has made on the old ways of life where I live.
My family has been in the area around Blakeney and Cley on the North Norfolk coast for over 200 years.
It also introduces the reader to my curiosity concerning the deeper mysteries of life.
The hardback was printed in Italy in 2006 but as soon as it had gone to press I realised that the story was incomplete.
I finished it in my next book, ‘A Most Excellent Adventure.’
Hardback, 9 colour plates, £9.00 + P&P
A Most Excellent Adventure asks the reader to view their thoughts, memories and dreams, the moments of intuition and premonition that appear in their heads every second of every day, from a slightly different perspective - from a perspective which takes them to another dimension where what ever they wish for becomes their reality.

‘The Fairytale of Josephine Star,’ is written under the pseudonym Josephine Baxter.
Why the pseudonym?
I use to tell people, it just seemed right at the time, but in truth, and this is going to sound so sad, I didn’t want to offend my elderly parents, or my mother-in-law, as the content, while done in the best possible taste, touches a very sensitive issue that some might find a trifle erotic.
Maybe it’s me. Maybe I’m a prude, or just a coward. Anyway, as the author I felt safer hiding behind a pseudonym.
As for The Fairytale, I stress here and now that it’s not a work of science fiction or fantasy, even if the following outline might suggest otherwise.
In 2009 the life of Josephine Baxter, seems very distant to that of Josephine Star, her kindred spirit, who lives 2000 years in Miss Baxter’s future … that is, until a very intimate experiment results in their swapping places.
Their altered perspectives reveal to them a fantastic conspiracy perpetrated by a small powerful group known as the Elite, who for millennia have controlled the masses through the suppression of one simple truth.
In order to keep their secret the Elite sabotage the Large Hadron Collider at CERN - but that’s only the start.
Ultimately they engineer the depopulation of our blue planet with a laboratory created virus – or rather, that’s what will happen if Josephine Star doesn’t find the key that unlocks the secret.

‘A Summer in Mallorca’ is a love story that follows four young people from their mid-teens to their mid-twenties as they holiday at Port de Pollenca.
It takes them on an adventure that will change their lives and solves a mystery that will change yours.
The story is set in the here and now but takes the reader back to 1838 Valldemosa, to correct the unjust slur made against the Mallorcan people by the French author George Sand in her book ‘A Winter in Mallorca.’
It then leaps forwards to the future, to explain a misconception which has confounded the people of this planet for millennia.
The story takes place entirely on the island, in Port de Pollenca and the Boquer valley.
It is suitable for readers of any age, providing you have an open mind and are young at heart.
Paperback, £8.00 + P&P
The holiday cottages are situated between Cley and Blakeney, the coast is about a mile to the North, you can see it, the sea, from the top of the hill and hear it when the wind's in the right direction.
We’ve got bags of safe parking, here at Broadview, we’re surrounded by countryside, and have a resident barn owl who quarters the field behind us.
