Last Saturday was the fifth anniversary of the publication of our first book, Magnificent Britain by Michael Murray.
I published two further titles in 2012.
Julia's Room by Michael Murray
I Think I Prefer the Tinned Variety: The Diary of a Petty Officer in the Fleet Air Arm during World War II by N. Buckle & C. Murray.
The next book I published was
Learning Lines? A Practical Guide for Drama Students and Aspiring Actors by Michael Murray.
In March 2015 Cabbage and Semolina: Memories of a 1950s Childhood was released.
From Carrier Bags and Nutty Slack to Steam Trains and Pennies via Nylon Frocks and Ankle Socks, Cabbage and Semolina is my attempt to capture some childhood memories from the 1950s.
Described by one reader as "a forty minute read with a cup of tea and smiles all around", Cabbage and Semolina is for everyone who wants to share a walk down Memory Lane with family and friends.
I was delighted when Cabbage and Semolina became an Amazon Number 1 Bestseller in the Social and Urban History category.
The book proved very popular with readers and for a couple of months, so many copies were downloaded that it received a Kindle All Stars Award.
In the summer of 2016 I was interviewed about Cabbage and Semolina for the McCartney&Stone Life and Living magazine. It's on page 16 if you follow this link and flick past Julie Walters and a few other articles.
In November Cabbage and Semolina was released in paperback, an ideal Christmas stocking filler for readers who still prefer to physically turn the pages.
Cabbage and Semolina currently has over one hundred positive reviews from Amazon readers and many, many thanks to everyone who has posted a review of my book.
A companion volume, Jam for Tea, was published in 2015 and is also available in ebook and paperback.
