Read full description of the books:
The date was Thursday 8 May 1941. Billy Frecknall was nine years old, and the country was at war. What could that mean to a nine-year-old? A great deal, not least being the fact that Billy to all intents and purposes no longer had a Dad, because his father had enlisted in the army in the early days of the war, and they didn’t even know where he was.
That night saw the biggest air raid Billy’s home town of Nottingham had experienced, and there were many casualties, including Billy’s Mum. Billy survived, but finding his Dad became even more urgent than before. His quest leads him into many adventures and a great deal of danger, but his courage never falters.
Billy is a cheerful, intelligent, resourceful boy who has the gift of winning the hearts of most people he encounters – he will probably win yours too!

Read information about the authorI'm an English novelist, and one of the oldest you'll find on Goodreads, although I'm both physically and mentally a lot younger than my Birth Certificate shows! I live in Cheltenham, in the Cotswolds, a beautiful area of the South-West of England, I have a gorgeous wife called Joan, three daughters, two grand-daughters, three grandsons, one great-grand-daughter, one great-grandson and a 19 year old black cat called Fifi.
In an earlier existence which seems to be a lifetime ago I taught French in a university, and if you Google me you will find a whole host of books attributed to me which were designed to help people who were trying to learn French - many of which I published through a company called TD Publications which I founded myself, although I closed that business when I was 75, thinking that it was time for me to retire and lead a quiet life.
But then I started writing fiction and suddenly realised that this is what I should have started doing long ago, and here I am six years later with six successful novels to my name and still actively writing! The first, Before the Swallow Dares was published in 2012, the second, The Heat of the Kitchen, came out in 2013; they were followed by Billy's War in 2014 and then its sequel, There's No Pride In Prejudice, in June 2016, and a short novel entitled A Happy Christmas published in October 2016. The most recent, A Change of Mind, was published in October 2017, and I was invited to talk about it, and about my work in general, at the Cheltenham Literature Festival (the oldest, largest and most prestigious literary festival in the UK) on 12 October. If you didn't believe what I said above about being younger than my years, six novels in just under six years ought to convince you!
All my novels, of course, are available on Amazon.
