‘Kith and Kin’- a heart warming Christmas buy.



Downtrodden and disheartened John McGrath, a malnourished eighteen year old cotton mill worker longs to escape the miserable working environment that has suppressed him for years.

Trapped under the tyrannical eye of the factory foreman Mr Hopps, John finds solstice in the wisdom of his best friend and fellow worker Caine Davies, who assures him that times will change.

A refreshing new chapter is offered to John in the form of ladies’ companion, Maira MacWilliams who reinforces his love and trust in others. With his new found confidence a career pathway is opened and better prospects are on the horizon. John’s life will never be the same again, but can happiness have a price?


At just £1, my novel ‘Kith and Kin’ is a fantastic, Christmas bargain!

The Girl With No one

Tiffany nomad

Tiffany :

I’m a lonely nomad, travelling from place to place

I long for kind company, but there’s no-one with a friendly face

All I want is somewhere to sleep. A place I can call my own

But instead, I wander aimlessly, because I don’t have a home

I’ve dreamt that I’ll find a friend, someone to keep me going

I don’t think that person exists, but there is no way of knowing

I shelter in public toilets, in hope that I’ll escape the rain

Lying awake in the dampness, I cry myself to sleep again

I’m the girl with no-one, because I don’t have a home;

Terrified of the future, I’m certain that I will die alone.
