Novels and Children’s Literature
In 1981, a worker is made redundant from a ceramics factory in Stoke-on-Trent and emigrates to the Soviet Union. Despite falling on hard times and becoming a hermit in the mountains, he holds the key to the search for a notorious serial killer. Hairy Potter and the Poisoner of Azerbaijan is a rip-roaring thriller set in the Caucasus region.
A young girl dreams of becoming a ballerina so her mother makes her a costume from an old curtain. Her inspiring quest for recognition unfolds beautifully in the gripping yarn, The Girl with the Dralon Tutu.

A children’s story set in Denmark, the home of all good fairy stories since Hans Christian Anderson, Alice’s Adventures in Legoland is a heart-warming tale of a little girl’s love for small pieces of coloured plastic.
Golding’s lesser known tale about an office manager responsible for collecting, collating and storing information, The Lord of the Files charts a man’s descent into obsession and madness.
Those who leave school notionally illiterate are all but invisible in modern society so the hero of this story is referred to only by the initials, A.S. Later in life he decides to do something about it but he does not foresee the problems. The Loneliness of the Long-Distance Learner is an angry novel about the general failures of the education system. It is a follow-up to the previous best-seller set in the school’s kitchen, To Stir with Love.
When Aldous Huxley’s ‘The Devil’s of Loudun’, about demonic possession in a convent, was published in 1952, it caused outrage among Roman Catholics. This new novel, The Satanic Nurses, will doubtless be likewise condemned by those who work in The National Health Service and the author may well need to go into hiding.
