"...beautifully written and I recommend it to children all over"

Review "Aliens and Angels' is a very beautiful and interesting story which deals with issues most children have. 'Not Without a Carrot' is so funny, it's a wonderful take on a very familiar story and from a very different point of view. I'm sure Sunday school teachers and even ministers/pastors will enjoy this as I did. 'Bootee For Etta' is another wonderful Christmas story every child would like to hear or read. The book is easy to read, beautifully written and I recommend it to children all over. It is sure to be one that will be read over and over again." Lottie Yinka, ex-minister

"...such amazing love, grace, humility and sheer joy of the Yuletide."

Review "A charming selection of three stories just like the Three Kings bearing gifts to baby Jesus. These stories are magical with a cheerful tone and will warm the hearts of young readers. Angels and Aliens is a perfect stocking filler for Christmas and adds a new dimension to children's Christmas stories. The character of Trouble the Donkey really gives the donkey who took Mary and Joseph to Bethlehem a firm place as the star of such amazing love, grace, humility and sheer joy of the Yuletide." Collette Caffrey, Stanza Poetry Group

A great review of 'A Ticket to Tewkesbury' by Rebecca D. Elswick

Image
"If you love a good mystery, then what could be better than a 50 year old letter that leads the main character, Julie, on an adventure to find the person who was supposed to receive this love letter? The one thing that Julie discovered from the letter was that it had been written by a soldier returning home after the end of the World War II to a nurse in Cleethorpes. They had met at a rehabilitation hospital in Kent and fell head over heels in love. With her husband in tow, Julie travels to East Coast holiday resort of Cleethorpes. Here they discover much more than who should have received the letter. They discover dark secrets that hark back to the Third Reich. If their discoveries fall into the wrong hands, the very foundation of the British government could be destroyed." Neal James is the author of five books: 'A Ticket to Tewkesbury' , 'Short Stories - V1' , 'Two Little Dicky Birds' , ' Threads of Deceit ' & ' Full Marks

A review by Jude Ouvrard - "a good read and the end left me wanting more"

Image
"I enjoyed reading this novel so much because of the author's talent to create the perfect plot. I liked all the twists and different directions he was taking me. Definitely a page turner! I couldn't put it down. The author has the ability to write description that made me feel like I was part of the story. I could see everything the author wanted me to see, like in a movie. It's well written and the characters all perfectly described. It's definitely a book that I will read again. It was a good read and the end left me wanting more. I recommend this book to everyone! Two thumbs up!"   Neal James is the author of five books: 'A Ticket to Tewkesbury' , 'Short Stories - V1' , 'Two Little Dicky Birds' , ' Threads of Deceit ' & ' Full Marks '.
