about me

I am a retired teacher. I have a love of all animals and take our siamese cats on holidays on our canal boat. When I retired after 34years "Tyson's Tale" just poured out of me.I enjoy cruising the canals and "real cruising" because it gives me the opportunity to meet some lovely people. Many thanks to Bradley Wind for the lovely cover design. I have enjoyed being a member of Authonomy but have decided to give it up. Originally I worked hard to make helpful suggestions to other members and have read some really good books which don't seem to get any where. I wish all aspiring authors all the best but my own aspirations have expired.

The animal community who live on "The Lane" is spurred into action by Tyson's antisocial behaviour. Tyson, a ginger tomcat, with a doting owner is finally taught a lesson he will never forget.
From the misunderstood spoilt siamese to the lonely stray all the animals are brought together by the actions of a new kitten on the block. He is oblivious to Tyson's bullying and his friendly nature opens lines of communication between them all.

Sci fi is not my normal choice and as I have only read the first 2 chaps, I can't really comment yet. All I can say is that It has interested me enough to want me to return and continue to find out whether James is guilty of raping Missie. The life style of the people and robots seem very intertwin... view book

A really appealing book for 9-10 year olds. A change from witches and wizards. This is within the grasp of all children's experience. Well done, backed, Anne view book

A lovely story for children told from an animals perspective. Animals certainly bring a lot of pleasure to family life and in this story the happiness has been extended to others.The sad man has been transformed and so this story has a happy end. Backed, Regards, Anne view book
