#LISSEN. Tea time with Bella.

18 Jul

Pic of Bella looking for digestive biscuits for Tea Time when we visited her and my son in the Highland cottage overlooking Loch Ness in the Scottish Highlands. She often swam in Loch Ness but there is no record of her swimming with ‘Nessie’.

I am now back down here in the English Midlands with nose to grindstone writing stories for my forthcoming book, Tales from the Frontier Daze Pub by Andrew Wishart. Coming soon and full of tales and mis-adventures of our hero Wee Andy as he meets Poison Ivy, Eden the Terrible, Hangin’ Dan, the one armed waitress and many other characters from his stay in Colorado in the Wild West of the United States. Watch my Author Page on Amazon Kindle for further news;

Back to grindstone. See you all next week.


#LISSEN. Sublime to the Ridiculous.

I say, look here, is nothing sacred? A chap can dream can’t he?

Andy Wishart has done it again. I was captured by the world of a young boy and his “crew” on page one and was not let go throughout the book. Wee Andy and his “crew” remind us of the power of the imagination and how, long before video games, cartoons or even television, children relied on their imaginations to create a world of excitement and fun, even while living in a world of rationing and nightly black outs to avoid being seen by the fighter planes that flew overhead. Adult Andy writes in a conversational manner with descriptions of events so vivid that you can feel the poke of the nettles in the field – and actually smell the smoke as the airplane burned. I normally do not like the third of anything – particularly the third book in a series of books. I have to say that I believe “Early Daze” is my favorite of the Daze series. Well done Mr. Wishart. I want more!
