AUTHORS ON DISPLAY:
JEAN GILL – Bestselling Author of How Blue is my Valley (#10 Kindle Travel). Jean Gill is a Welsh writer and photographer living in the south of France.
Faithful Through Hard Times – The true story of four years, 3 million bombs, one small island out-facing the might of the German and Italian airforces – and one young Scotsman who didn’t want to be there.
This is not a WW2 memoir. It is a riveting reconstruction from an eye-witness account written at the time in a secret diary, a diary too dangerous to show anyone and too precious to destroy.Young men died in wars and old men lied about what they’d done in them; George had no intention of doing either.
Private George Taylor arrived on Malta in 1940 thinking that shiny buttons would earn him fast promotion; he left four years later, a cynical sergeant and a Master Mason who never said, ‘I was there’ without a bitter smile.
Despite the times he said, ‘It’s me for the next boat’, despite his fears that Nettie had forgotten him, George kept the motto of the Royal Army Medical Corps ‘In arduis fidelis’, ‘faithful through hard times’ – in public – and only told his diary the inside story of four long years.
Sixty years later, the truth has to be told. Trailer youtube.com/watch?v=WrOShZg44Ec
Someone To Look Up To – It’s a dog’s life in the south of France. From puppyhood, Sirius the Pyrenean Mountain Dog has been trying to understand his humans and train them with kindness…
How this led to divorce he has no idea. More misunderstandings take Sirius to Death Row in an animal shelter, as a so-called dangerous dog learning survival tricks from the other inmates. During the twilight barking, he is shocked to hear his brother’s voice but the bitter-sweet reunion is short-lived. Doggedly, Sirius keeps the faith.
One day, his human will come.
Song at Dawn – Book 1 in the Troubadours Series – 1150 in Provence, where love and marriage are as divided as Christian and Muslim. A historical thriller set in Narbonne just after the Second Crusade. On the run from abuse, Estela wakes in a ditch with only her lute, her amazing voice, and a dagger hidden in her petticoats.
Her talent finds a patron in Alienor of Aquitaine and more than a music tutor in the Queen’s finest troubadour and Commander of the Guard, Dragonetz los Pros.
Weary of war, Dragonetz uses Jewish money and Moorish expertise to build that most modern of inventions, a papermill, arousing the wrath of the Church. Their enemies gather, ready to light the political and religious powder-keg of medieval Narbonne.
