For the benefit of bedlam breakout and anybody else who might be interested, there is a quick and free way of reading the first two chapters of "Two Seasons".
Google in Amazon, then add my name and scroll a little way down the page to the front cover of "Two Seasons". Click on Look Inside and you will get the first two chapters to read.
In Chapter One (What's Wrong With Elvis?) you will see mention of Lindsay's pie shop,a man from Thatto Heath who is a big friend of Alex Murphy, a Makem who lives in Wigan and supports Warrington, a famous saying by Oscar Wilde, slightly modified and a programme on the wireless in the fifties when the main star was a ventriloquist!
If your attention limit has not yet been reached, you can also read Chapter Two (A Tale From Knowsley Road). References here to League Express and the Magna Carta, a former G.I. at the American air base at Burtonwood watching his first live game of Rugby League at Knowsley Road, the words to the Saint's song "You Light Up My Senses" and a tale of a man who is going USA for a day to a wedding.
(Round East Lancashire USA means Uther Side of Accrington).
If you like what you have read then you can do the obvious. If you don't like what you have read, then you will only have wasted five minutes of your time.
www.geofflee.net for news of my novels, One Winter, One Spring, One Summer and One Autumn, all written against a strong Rugby League background, set in South Lancashire and inspired by the old saying about work: "They could write a book about this place. It would be a best seller".
I have now just had my fifth novel published. It is called "Two Seasons" and has a background of Work, Family, Old Friends and Rugby League during 2002 and 2003.
