Hi everyone, I've stepped into the abyss......I'm a full time writer now! It's a tough life, but hey, I've got a sense of humour. I've come through only slightly demented from what the past 50 odd years has thrown at me, but on the positive side L.I.F.E has given me lots of fuel regarding stories to write about. However, it's not all bad; I'm now sailing in peaceful waters as still as a millpond and reaping the rewards from my life choices. About bloody time too........

After the death of his father John Burton goes back to his parents’ house to help his mother organise the funeral. Being in the familiar surroundings of the home where he grew up cannot help but bring back memories of his youth; especially a particular summer in 1976.
Told in flashbacks, we learn of the usual coming-of-age milestones; finding a partner, losing your virginity, love and loss, and coping with death. There’s also a rather humorous look at how embarrassing it was for a teenage boy to try and buy condoms before they were freely available on the supermarket shelves.
Being a teenager in the 1970’s myself I was swept along in a wave of nostalgia for my long-lost youth. I fully agree with Ian’s opinion that he was born at just the right time. I thank my lucky stars that I grew up in the 1970’s!
A delightful read, especially if you’re fifty-something (like me!).
