David Bramhall ...

... at various times a music teacher, conductor, composer, arranger, choir-trainer, concert-promoter, a very grumpy blogger, company secretary and most recently an aspiring but rather clueless engineer ...

... now an elderly gent and the author of some decidedly odd books, including nine novels ...

The Greatest Cape, a series of five books. Pirates, some enormous villains, cannibals, wicked clergymen, more pirates, some treasure, a loony school teacher (but aren't they all?), secret tunnels, a talking dog, a jagular, ephelants, one more pirate and some cake. Not necessarily in that order, of course ...

The Kitty Novels, a Trilogy. Less scary than The Greatest Cape (but still fairly scary, to be honest). Time travel, battles, magic, a couple of friendly monsters, plenty of people who are not friendly at all, a castle, some floods and an awful lot of snow but rather less cake, sadly ...

The Honeyplot, a novel. Quite a lot of singing, some bees, a vanishing sheep, some highly embarrassed clergymen, a rather sad romance and an even sadder murder ...

Aurelia, six ghost stories. One of them is even true!
