The fact that both The Sixpenny Debt and The Lost College were continuing to do well, inspired a third collection which was published in 2010.
My story ‘Rural Bliss’ is a tale of love, obsession, death… and sheep; inspired by my own flock of rare breed, pedigree Cotswolds. The peace and quiet of the lambing barn at midnight, while waiting for the next arrival, was a great time to let my imagination soar – at least it kept the cold out.
I should add that all the characters, and incidents in ‘Rural Bliss’ are entirely fictional. The reason I stress that, will become apparent if you read the story!
