Some people are good at lots of things

It's true - some lucky people have a 'multi skill' set, turning their very capable hands to a variety of different disciplines. I, however fall into the 'Averagely- Able - At- Most - Things, Excellent -At - None' category. I like to think I cover my shortcomings with dedication, enthusiasm and effort. But I dream of effortless............
Which is a very rambling way of starting a post, but I promise it is relevant. You see, at Border Oak we have quite a few of the blessed 'Multi skilled' including a very good, international standard rally navigator, a World Champion Marble player (I am not even joking - and the fact that he is also an amazing artist and a  all round nice person makes him a tad unlikeable), a life saving fireman and several incredibly good sportsmen. But as of tomorrow we can officially add 'Published Author' to our list, when our Chief Designer - Ewart Hutton -  has his first novel published.

Can you believe that? Not just a vanity press publication but a 'bone fide, has a publisher and agent, is available on Amazon' writer! Amazing, exciting and quite quite brilliant, if you ask me. But hey, what do I know?

Here's a review from someone who does though............(and I can't wait to read it and will be endlessly, shamelessly bragging about the fact that I know a famous author).


'GOOD PEOPLE's corkscrew plot skewers small-town hypocrisy with a wry smile and a sniff of disgust. An entertaining debut with more stings in the tail than a bag of scorpions.' VAL McDERMID
‘Glyn Capaldi makes a hugely impressive first appearance in GOOD PEOPLE … teasingly elusive, and convincing, set in dark woodlands and small towns that conceal more than the reader can possibly suspect.’ CAMPBELL ARMSTRONG

Product Description

Introducing D.S. Glyn Capaldi, maverick cop.
Fallen from grace in Cardiff and exiled to be the catch-all detective in the big bit in the middle that God gave to the sheep. A place where nothing of any significance is meant to happen, a place where supposedly he can do little harm.
But trouble has a way of catching-up with Capaldi. Six men and a young woman disappear into the night. They don’t all reappear. The ones that do are good people with a good explanation. Only Capaldi remains unconvinced.
In the face of opposition from the locals, he delves deeper and starts to uncover a network of conflicts, betrayals and depravity that resonates below the outwardly calm surface of rural respectability. Capaldi is back in the saddle.
