• A Family History in Wales and the North East of England Diagonal Ties is a fascinating account of one family’s connections throughout the generations with both the North East of England and the South of Wales. Susan Lewis relates the tale of her search for ancestors with humour, an eye for detail and an intriguing insight into life during the times in which they lived. Starting with rural Welsh life in the 1700s, the story moves through the heart of the industrial revolution and on into the foundries of the North-East. Susan considers with poignancy and compassion how events including a war in South Africa, a riot in Llanelli, a general strike, and two world wars, affected the lives and fortunes of those concerned. The story spans the reigns of nine kings and queens as one person from each generation makes that diagonal journey that will determine whether he or she will live as a Welsh person or a North Easterner.

  • Divers is the true story of Jon May, a dive medic, whose journey started with the Piper Alpha disaster, and took him from the North Sea to the Kuwait War, to Bombay, the South China Sea and Vietnam. It is a story shot through with the drama, gallows humour and suspense of one of the world’s most dangerous professions, carried out by an individual breed of men in some of Earth’s toughest corners. Jon was called upon to help rescue a skipper trapped below deck on a sinking ship, treat a latterday victim of mustard gas and encountered boat people who could have been mistaken for pirates. He learned never to expect any gratitude from a Bombay beggar and, in this book, tells of encounters with angry sea snakes as well as a phantom oilrig. It may sound like the stuff of fiction, but for knife-edged excitement, nothing beats the truth.

  • Thinking of writing a book? It’s not all chat shows, award ceremonies and copious amounts of booze – except for the copious amounts of booze. Join My Only Boro author Will Nett as he deals with his stratospheric new-found success – he was on local radio, y’know – and embarks upon ‘difficult second book phase’. Stuck for new subject matter, and holding down a series of menial jobs in order to collect new material, he becomes embroiled in a peculiar world of yo-yo dieting, backyard boxing bouts, and religious cults. It’s a wonder he has time for punch-ups on the streets of Paris, upsetting Eurovision song contest winners, and arranging a parking space for potential Prime Ministers… but could he turn any of it into a book?
