Fagus the Badger Book Update

Hello everyone it has been a while since I was on here. I hope that you are all surviving lockdown. Sadly I have lost a good friend to this wicked virus. Christmas came and went and 2021 is upon us so I thought I would give you and update on my progress.

I have been busy during lockdown transposing my original story from hand typed onto my computer. It was a joy to catch up with my character Fagus.

The story started back in the 1980's and the research and first draft sat in a box while I got on with life. In the 1990's I moved up to Yorkshire and my story took shape. It was typed out as a manuscript and again sat silent.
Since lockdown I decided to dust it off and transpose it onto a memory stick. I have rewritten parts and added a chapter, but it is now in the process of being proofread. Then I plan to try get it published.

When we moved to Lincolnshire this sett was close to us.


This was one of the books I read when I was doing my research and recently I found a copy online. I was thrilled to find it was signed too.

Chapter Five


Hello I hope that you are all well and surviving lock down.

They house is clean, the garden tidy and I'm missing my family.

I have been busy on my book and have now completed chapter five. I look out my window and watch the world go by. There is a family of blackbirds being fed out on the lawn. Fledglings running around demanding food. They are so comical - one nearly fell in the pond trying to copy its mother, while the other hasn't quite mastered the art of perching.
