Don't be distracted/misled, by the way, if you are looking at my books on Amazon, by something called The Bells of St Martin's, which is an earlier version of St Martin's Summer, self-published some years ago (2011). The new version (and the sequel You Owe Me Five Farthings, which I'm writing at present - hopefully available next year) are a new much-improved telling of the story which I hope you will enjoy!

The North Korean Question
As
I write this (with our elderly Tonkinese cat tucked under my arm to stop her
from sitting on the keyboard), North Korea seems a very long way away. But the
problem it poses to the world community has become one of those international
‘questions’ that bed...

Donald Trump and The Apprentice
I’ve
just learned (by a circuitous route which I won’t bother you with) that Donald
Trump invented the format so
successfully used both in the US and over here in Britain for The Apprentice, and was its American host . I have always hated the
British versio...

Go with the drachma
  Amazing scenes in
Greece this morning, though perhaps the celebrations may be short-lived when it

help them to escape the even more grinding austerity which they very
understan...

Reflections on the 2015 election
Anyone who read my blog yesterday, or who has passed my
house here at Trevadlock Cross and seen the Lib Dem poster supporting Dan
Rogerson, our now-defeated MP, will understand that I am truly gutted by what

2015 Election - what short memories people have
