AH, June is upon us and yet, here on the blustery Irish Sea coast, there's rain in the warm air with gale-force winds threatening. Still, the cricket world cup is on and this is generally a green and pleasant land. In hearty Lancashire we don't complain . . .
Like our books on this light-literary website, the music was uplifting and inspiring, a selection I enjoy from Les Miserables sung by Alfie Boe and Michael Ball; especially the song I Dreamed A Dream - from which this month's home post gets its title (above).
So inspiring, in fact, that I have added some abridged lines to our Poem page (see near top of right column), with a note relating to the Stone series.
The setting for our latest publication, The Mystery of Mister Blues, is also Paris - as well as our Fylde coast where reporter Stone resides. Its opening pages are on our Chapter/Story page.
Meanwhile, a sixth Stone book is close to completion and being revised with a view to publication in late summer. There is also a book of light-hearted memoir, anecdote and jottings under way entitled Borrowed Times - see our Books page for all publications including those still only in the pipeline.
So, dear reader, we wish you a pleasant summer wherever you are in the world and remember, you're never alone with a book . . .
It's where we share our dreams.

DEAR readers, we've been warned by administrators this website and its free reading might be affected by closure of Google+ but technicalities they outline are too complicated for simple retired journalists. Changes may occur from April 2 over which we have no control.
