Paris, a novel

Miles has left his private school fractionally on the early side, after an incident involving a bottle of Green Chartreuse, or at least what was left of it, and is now determined to leave home and make his way in the world of 1980s London. But his real ambition is to play blues piano in the 1960s or earlier, in Paris, or Chicago or Berlin, and the fulfilment of this unlikely, if poetic, dream is further complicated by other factors that are currently hidden deep within him, and of which he has no idea as the story begins. “Lively, witty and always superbly engrossing. I thoroughly recommend it.” Christopher Sandford, best-selling biographer

Meet Rupert Rushbrooke

What follows is a fast-paced, suspenseful page-tapper of a story that reads like a latter-day Long Good Friday and explores themes of revenge and redemption.

Braving the World: Adventures in Travel and Retirement

“When it came right down to it, our dream trip felt like falling off a cliff.”

After early retirement, in 2017 Pam and her husband Dave packed four suitcases and one beer cooler full of insulin and boarded a one-way flight to Italy for a year-long dream trip.

The dream was to live like locals, find out-of-the-way restaurants, and watch the seasons change.  But behind every dream, there is the reality.

What happens when two people retire from their full-time jobs and realize they have developed separate lives? Is it possible to reconnect, despite the stress of traveling, while living alone together, 24/7, in small apartments? Is there such a thing as too much togetherness? Their dream trip came with other challenges—managing Pam’s Type 1 diabetes, dodging political unrest in Barcelona, and navigating water restrictions in Egypt.   

Through the ups and downs of travel, Pam and Dave start to rebuild their lives together… and look for a little adventure.
