House Under the Hill – released 15th June 2018

Historical novel based in Edwardian times and the 1950s. 

The story of Hudson Ewbanke Kearley Liberal MP and millionaire who built a mansion on the HIraethog moor in the 1890s. Hudson entertained important guests at the house such as WWI Prime Minister, David Lloyd George, the Prince of Wales and the First Governor General of Ireland, Tim Healey. But after the war, the house fell into decline and was abandoned by the mid-1950s. It is now a ruin, and beyond repair. My interest in the ruin, after living near it in the 1970-80s, led to researching and writing this short historical novel of 62k words. Locals call the house haunted, but there are few that know the real story. My aim was to give people the opportunity to go back in time and experience the house as it was in its heyday.

The novel is available on Amazon:
