Autumn Gold


AS nights draw in here on the Irish Sea coast of Lancashire, there's a cosy glow at our cottage home in Great Marton. It comes from a reading light beside the flickering fireplace, for when better to enjoy some reading?
On this light-literary website we aim to bring you uplifting fiction and heart-warming memoir. The gold, like autumn leaves, which glints within our Pages For You is free and from retired journalists tired of all that bad news.
Our Books, in Kindle editions and paperbacks sponsored by the British Arts Council, have extracts to read, along with our Chapter/Story items; then there is also the weekly updated Column/Memoir and our  Poem page, which welcomes contributions. The latter is led this month by a popular Shakespearean sonnet reflecting the season and a sense of joy in age and life well lived.
Those sentiments inspired a forthcoming humorous memoir entitled Borrowed Times as well as the latest in our thriller/romance series of Sam Stone novels, Written In Stone.
Find out more on our Books page, where full publications can also be ordered. Any purchases, which are kept to the recommended retail price minimum, help maintain this non-profit-making venture.
Wherever you are in the world, relax and enjoy this golden time of year.
Happy reading!

The Tigers Come At Night


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.
