Sinopsis: The summer of 1979 was the best summer ever! Pretty, blonde and dangerously impetuous, Bev and Carol head for the sun, lucky beneficiaries of a generous university grant. They are full of enthusiasm and the dazzling spirit of adventure that only seems possible when we are young. Essential swimwear is selected and Lipton’s vegetable oil is perfumed with patchouli for the perfect tan. They end up in Argelès-sur-mer, on a campsite close to the coast and not far from the border with Spain. Every day brings new challenges: how to hold a meaningful conversation on a naturist beach, what to do about a precocious teenage stalker, how to transport a gallon of port on a moped... all of which they meet head-on, with dubious philosophy and irrepressible optimism. 'One Summer in France' is a humorous tale based on a three-month study break the author took as part of her languages degree course at Keele University in 1979. ‘Would you do it all again?’ asked Carol. ‘Like a shot!’ I said. And I would. Author's Note: There are three Bev and Carol adventures, which are all stand-alone books. For those who would like to know the order, here it is: 'One Summer in France', 'Bunny on a Bike' and 'Stranded in the Seychelles'.
About the Author: I started writing stories when I was a child, reading them to my sisters, who were generally quite demanding, wanting to know what happened next. They didn't like the idea of a cliffhanger! At school I soon realised that I wanted to specialise in literature and languages, which I went on to study at Keele university. Following that, I gained a PGCE at Queens' College Cambridge and took up teaching posts in Greece, Seychelles and finally at Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge. Some years later, I moved to France with my husband and two youngest children, where I am now lucky enough to be able to write every day. I have several ebooks on Amazon which I will bring out as paperbacks this year. I have a number of works in progress. The next one to be published will be a collection of short stories. I already have one short story on Amazon ('Angels' - a metaphysical horror story by B. A. Spicer). I write in many genres, including humour, mystery, psychological drama and science fiction, but always with an eye for detail and a desire to create believable and complex characters.
