I finished the Magic in the Landscape today by Nigel Pennick.

The book is a very gentle introduction to the layout of the landscape showing how little of the original still remains. When archaeologists move stone circles away from the construction of a new road, then they inevitably change the orientation of the circle and the genius loci, the spirit of the place. An interesting fact from the book is that when Charles Dickens was travelling away from home, he would change the orientation of his bed using Feng Shui principles.

I’m continuing to write my book about a cat who believes he’s a Buddhist because he lives in the moment. It’s called It’s Me and I am about half way through I think, but you can never be sure. The hero is called Freddie and he loves reading books and finding out information. He’s also mischievous and plays tricks on the librarian by sitting on the photocopier – with the lid open – and leaving evidence of his presence.

I was born in Leicester. I attended school in Yorkshire and University in Liverpool. I have been to 93 countries and territories including The Balkans and Armenia in 2015, France and Slovakia in 2016, and some of the Greek Islands in 2017. My sense of humour is distilled from The Goons, Monty Python, Fawlty Towers, and Midsomer Murders. I love being creative in my writing and I love writing about travelling. My next books are a travel book about Greece and a novel inspired by Brexit.
