The planned cover for the prize-winning book Sussex Tales.
Now substantially revised and extended, Sussex Tales is an episodic novel base around a book of recipes handed down through 3 generations.
Each story covers a part of rural life in the mid 1960s – that time when the last of the heavy horses were working into retirement and all of the traditions of village life were fading fast.
Every chapter is accompanied by one of Grandma’s recipes (mostly for country wines) plus notes on the traditions and folklore attached to the main ingredients.

(22 July 1903 – 2 September 1942)
