NEW Writing

Cover: Violet Tobacco

My latest writing project  is  a new children’s story, After the War.

After the War is about the three hundred child concentration camp survivors who came to the Lake District nearly 75 years ago (who were known as the Windermere Boys).

Research has taken me across the UK and Europe.

I am very grateful to have the kind support of key witnesses and from Trevor Avery and the Lake District Holocaust Project. 

It will be published in 2020 by Barrington Stoke.
