Welcome

Welcome to The Bookshelf, where you’ll find reviews of books I have enjoyed and …… more importantly ……. books YOU have enjoyed! If you want to nominate a book for The Bookshelf then get in touch, tell me what made you choose the book and whether you enjoyed it and we’ll put it (with a credit to you of course) on The Bookshelf.

In time you will also find information here on books I have written (watch this space - these are a work in progress) as well as some satellite stories I will write just for you and hopefully a few free downloads too.

Remember you can order any of the books I recommend from your local library so there’s no need to spend of fortune. 

Authors and publishers - I am happy to consider middle grade or pre-school titles for review.  Please get in touch via the "contact me" page. Thank you.
