Guy at the Bar – Brompton on Swale

Guy at the Bar (Small)[15]

I lived in Brompton in the late sixties/early seventies. I’d love to list the names of the kids I went to school with and hung out with, but there’s a thing called privacy. They might not like the exposure.
I wrote “Guy at the Bar” about ten years ago. My husband travelled a great deal with work and I had a lot of time on my hands. When ebooks became popular, I released my first writing attempt on Amazon, also published a paperback. I was pleased with myself. I’ve always loved to write, and there I was, a (self) published author. I didn’t make any money from the book, maybe just covered my expenses, but it got the story out of my brain. Right after Guy at the Bar, I wrote “Girl on the Beach”, which I also released as a short story.

SandraBookCoverGhostsOnTheSandNow, as a more experienced writer, I’ve re-written both of these books and put them in a compilation of short stories called “Ghosts on the Sand and other Chilling Tales.” The third story in this compilation is called “Camera.” The creepy events of Camera take place on Richmond Road near Easby Abbey and then by the river Swale.

I’d love to share my stories with the folks who inspired me to write them. Thanks to Alan Bond, (oops, mentioned a name, hope that was OK) I can.  He invited me to join Brompton-on-Swale Banter. I love being part of that group and reconnecting with the village life I loved.  Even met up with a long-lost friend on my last trip to England. I currently live in Colorado, but am retiring to Abruzzo. in a few years. Always been in love with Italy, so I may as well spend my last few years there. Where better to write that in a small Italian village?

I hope this blog gets to the folks in Brompton, please pass it on if you read it. My stories are ghost stories set in the North of England. They are all based on real events that happened to me. Seems I’m open to visitations and it’s not something I can control. I’m not looking for sales, just tell folks about me. I’ll be sending some paperbacks to those of you who’d like one. The ebook will be for sale on Amazon, and very cheaply. I’d love to make money (who wouldn’t), but more than anything…I love to write. If you want to connect with me, you can IM me on Facebook.

About four years ago I published another book “Dead of July” I actually made some money on this one so for now, because I’m pleased with myself, I’m giving this book away on Amazon.

Take a look at it, and my bio. It will give you an idea of what to expect.

Dead of July – Amazon

Take Care folks!

      Hi Norma, I’m still working on it. The last short story is with my editor now. I’m hoping to release it within the next couple of months. The easy bit is writing. The hard bit is getting it published. Thanks for asking, please check back. Take Care!

      Hi Andy, it is on Amazon in my book Ghosts on the Sand and other chilling tales. Not very expensive as I’m not famous. Hope you enjoy it! Let me know what you think.
