Happy Reading

Help me to save more feral cats and ill-treated dogs, and enjoy my books.

My first book written when the memories were fresh in my mind 1992, but published in 2008 after lying in our attic for almost 20 years...

Title "Chasing Dreams in Lefkas"


Inspireing and true adventure, about a middle aged couple who opted out of the recession in the UK in 1991, and turned a negative situation into a possitive one.

Tony was made redundant from a managerial position at the age of 50, and was sinking into a depression. Diane heard that a little boy who they had met on holiday with his parents had spoken for the first time after Diane sent them a video of their holiday. So the idea was born...

They sold their new Mercedes car and bought an 18 year-old VW camper, packed it with video equipment and headed from their home in Cheshire, England to the Greek island of Lefkas, where they had spent a holiday the previous year. Then, they had flown there in four hours, this time it took four days. - There they made videos of the island adding personal moments for people, using a generator in the swealtering heat, and caused a sensation when they showed the videos from a portable TV facing a cobbled street in the sleepy little fishing village of Agos Nikitas.

Follow them and enjoy the many varied experiences, some good, some exasperating, some humorous, but all of them extremely memorable!

If  Diane had not written this book she would have always looked back and wondered why she hadn't. Did they find the meaning of true happiness, or were they merely chasing dreams?

I would greatly appreciate a few kind words as reviews of my books, if you liked them. If you didn't just tell me! :-(

Please excuse any typos you find in my books. I write and edit myself as it saves money for me to help the animals. It's a desperate situation here, especially when the hunting season is over... I find half starved, terrified dogs hardly able to walk. They hide in the scrub at the back of my house, after being dumped on the hills of the Akamas. Some make it t some half built houses for shelter. This is where I try to make them comfortable and take food and water to them until they trust me. Then the healing process can begin... I gain their trust with kindness and nice food!

Hobo was a skeleton, couldn't even stand up for a week.


He fond a home across the island after me caring for him and teaching him how to play and to accept love. It took 6 months, but it was worth it! He became a faithful, affectionate dog.
