Feliz ano nuevo. Here's to a healthy and (hopefully) more peaceful 2017.

Apologies for not yet having published 'Who are the JC's?', the third book in the South Downs series. Unfortunately 2016 turned out to be a very busy year so I am still editing the manuscript.  Hopefully it will be published before the end of January.

In the meantime I am also creating paperback copies of all of my books. 'Homicide in Hampshire' being the first. And for those of you who have asked me, I am also editing out some of the 'cockney-speak' in Cleo's books. Yes, I know some of you do like it but let's be fair to other readers.

Thank you all for your support in 2016 and here's to 2017!

Happy Hogmanay.

The most annoying anti-leave bit of propaganda is that people voted for Brexit because they don't like immigrants. NOT TRUE.

Most of us voted because the UK desperately needs money for the NHS, Education and various other State funded things.

Imagine how horrified, appalled and ANGRY we are when the Government is offering to pay vast sums to the EU for various 'privileges'.

I think the reason why the EU is asking for this money is to encourage other member countries NOT to leave the EU. Yes, there are millions of Europeans who also want their countries back.

Come on, UK politicians, we DON'T need Europe. We have the Commonwealth and other countries with which we can trade more profitably.

Since writing the above:

Glad to hear Boris Johnson speaking up against these vast sums of money proposed to be paid to the EU.

Italy wants their own currency back. Let's hope more EU countries begin to see sense.
