Yohoo, I’m back…..

Hello folks, you have noticed (or more likely not) that I have been missing for a while from my page.

That is because I have been struggling to finish my book and get it into print and with a great deal of help from my long suffering family I finally reached my goal!

Yipee…mentally turns cartwheels

So I can proudly say I am now the published author of Nothe Fort and Beyond.

Nothe fort and Beyond 261 KB

Don’t think this is just a book about the military in Weymouth though…which of course it is…but it contains so much more.

Stories of Weymouth and Portland families, tales of the harsh conditions for the convicts and local quarrymen in the Portland dust bowls.

The doings of local bobbies in their fight to keep soldiers and residents on the straight and narrow.

There’s disasters, deaths, murders, suicides, and on somewhat a happier note marriages and love affairs.

Who knows, you might even find one of your relative’s tales within its pages.

But fear yea not…I have loads of Weymouth tales ready and waiting in the pipeline, I spend an awful lot of time recumbent, day dreaming about local tales of old!
