My Novel

Hello again!
My novel is called Gipsy Moth and is set in Devon in 1930.
I've always loved Devon and was amazed when I first went there in my teens to see the countryside - the rolling hills - rolling right down to the sea! This was after spending several holidays in comparatively flat East Anglia, or the metropolis of Brighton and Hove.
I had also adored Gentian Hill by Elizabeth Goudge, set in Torbay during the days of Nelson. However, for my novel, I choose the 1930s because Devon was a favourite holiday destination for my family between the Wars.

  1. Love the picture of your childhood books. I still have half a dozen, dog-eared and tattered which I cannot bear to part with. Good luck with the blogging.
