Fiestas and Siestas Miles Apart


Fiestas and Siestas Miles Apart is the humorous but true story of what happens when the Cuthbertson family decides to sell everything (including the family business), load the family car, and move from England to Spain.


As author Alan Cuthbertson and wife, Heather, begin their move, daughters Ashlie and Stacey have other ideas and take off on their own adventure to Thailand, Australia, and New Zealand. The girls swim with sharks and work in a gold mine, their enthusiasm and naivety shown in the e-mails and texts received by their parents, who themselves are finding Spanish life a very steep learning curve. Who knew fried sparrow was a delicacy? And Alan’s first hunting trip is not a completely successful expedition, but a very funny one.


Eventually the Cuthbertson family finds the house and village of their dreams, but this is just the beginning of their adventures in Spain…


Fiestas and Siestas Miles Apart is sure to entertain and put a smile on your face.

Clover House


How many rules would you break to fulfil a loved one’s wishes?


Clover House is a home run by the local council. It’s residents are there because their parents, family or the community can no longer deal with their behaviour. Leo French has lived at Clover House for nearly 8 years. For Leo life was dull and mundane, that was until Julie Sykes arrived.


After uncovering Julie’s secret, Leo uses his limited time and resources to make her wishes come true. At the time he had no idea it would include foreign travel, theft and attempted murder...

This tear jerker has so many twists and turns, but I guarantee, you didn’t see the last one coming.

This is a compelling story that will keep the pages turning. It’s gripping, emotional, and has a heck of a surprise ending. I did not see that coming.


Leo and Julie are well-defined, likeable, and believable characters. The chemistry between them is remarkable. Even when faced with adversity, they still prevailed and made me cheer.


This is a solid, well-written book and worth every minute of the time it takes to read it. I loved it!
