Our first free of charge e-book: "Tales from the Gaiety", a tribute to old time music hall, was our first publication in 2006 - it's a bit frayed around the edges, but we love it anyway.

We had previously recorded some of our poems and in 2008 we thought it would be useful, and, of course, fun, to record our books. We were delighted when a local hospital radio and the national prison radio association accepted some them for broadcasting. They are also distributed in the talking newspaper for local blind people.

Our latest project Fare Deal went to e-book while funding was being sought, but, happily was launched in paperback in Dec 2010.

CLICK HERE To go to FARE DEAL a farce centred on the mishaps of the wedding of a Mayor's daughter (2010 project) or read it below

CLICK HERE to open FARE DEAL audio MP3 tracks there is some very mild adult language and some innuendo - but then, it is a farce  - if you enjoy a  'Carry On' this could be for you.  A local newspaper reviewer called Fare Deal 'a saucy romp'.
