Is there a new book coming? Find out what John has been up to since his last book, Prunes For Breakfast.
Here's just a taste of what John had to say!
When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?
When I retired, I realized that I then had the time to do something that I had always wanted to do – write a book! So far, I have now written three, much to the dismay of my wife!
What is your work schedule like when you're writing?
I try to stick to half a day of writing, so as to be able to spend time with wife, dog and family. Occasionally, when I am really in the midst of things, I get so caught up that a whole day flies by.
What do you like to do when you're not writing?
My wife and I love dogs, walking in the hills of Tenerife and good wine. In England, we have acquired a rather fast Abarth which will shortly be visiting Goodwood race track, where we are members. A treat in store! We also love to travel, and have just returned from France.
How many books have you written? Which is your favorite?
I have written three books – so far – and my favorite is Prunes for Breakfast. I learned so much about the past, my family and particularly my father, from doing the research for that book.
Do you hear from your readers much? What kinds of things do they say?
I have been surprised at how many people have been in touch with me direct. They come from all over the world. Many have visited Tenerife or another Canary Island, and bought a copy of my book there, or subsequently on Amazon. I get a lot of emails asking questions about the stories and about myself, and that, in part, is why I was persuaded to write The Reluctant Hotelkeeper.
