The Making of Annie-May
Alana Beth Davies

It’s the 1980s in south Wales, with all its turbulence - unemployment, hardship, and a bitter miners’ strike 


This is a love story, a family saga, a social and political commentary on life in 20th century Wales, as seen through the eyes of one woman and her family, as we follow her journey from a pliable and naïve young girl to a confident and self-assured woman.

Kinky Playwright by
TG Hyde

kinky playwright front cover.jpg

Cover by Smooth Doodle

An ordinary man struggling to become a writer begins to experience migraines. But these

migraines are of a rare and unusual kind. Severe and uncompromising in nature, they reveal

to him off-beat, yet compelling tales during states of altered consciousness. The stories and

scenarios are far too fantastic and infectious for his own imagination to conjure up alone.

Initially thought as a metaphysical gift, or a helping hand', the migraines take the man on a

journey towards success and acclaim. Only this journey is not as straight forward as it

seemed, and our unnamed narrator quickly encounters peculiar situations and unexpected

consequences that threaten to turn his whole life upside down

Behind the Chicken Wire
by Lynn Roberts

It’s the dawn of a new millennium in the south Wales city, but for Detective Inspector Harry Hook, it’s business as usual. The constant battle against crime is relentless, and he seems to be on the losing side. Then everything changes. Is there a link between the sudden spate of violence, and the rumour of a new drug that threatens to overwhelm the community he tries so desperately to protect?

The setting is of its time: the music, the cars, the fashions, and sometimes the language. All these change, but the fight between good and evil does not.

Dark or Bitter
by T G Hyde

glenn bk 1 smaller cover 3 beggars.jpg

In this collection, Glenn Hyde has put together six unconnected and seemingly disconnected stories. Be prepared for the unexpected, the surprising and the bewildering.

From dark and gloomy to humorous and quirky, one thing links them  – his unwavering awareness of the human condition in its many and varied forms. No judging, no moralising. Just observing, accepting. and sometimes imagining.

The Weird and Wonderful World
of R W Prosser

A collection of stories and  rhymes, ranging from the quirky to a love poem.  Weird and Wonderful it certainly is!


Learning Something Every Day
by D Huw Thomas


In his autobiography, Huw pays homage to people and places that have meant a great deal to him during his life. His memories are rich, and will resonate with his contemporaries, as he recalls the everyday events that we may have taken for granted, but have now passed into the history books. Local shops, TV programmes, radio and music, these are all things we can identify with, and he jolts our own memories with his. This is a true celebration of life, in prose and in poetry. Joy and sadness, laughter and loss, Huw doesn’t shy away from any of them.

The Dance 
and other stories

the dance cover.jpg

If you’re expecting these stories to fall into a particular genre, then you’ll be disappointed. Unless there’s a genre called ‘eclectic’. They have been written over a few years; they may have improved over that time – you, reader, will be the judge of that! But the stories in this little volume are not presented in chronological order.


The tales are varied: in theme, in content, and in length. If you don’t like one, you may enjoy another!

Just a Little Drop ... 
by Alana Beth Davies

A poetry collection.
A little drop of memory, of love and loss and laughter. Recollections and reflections on a life well-lived, alongside excitement for a future to come

just a little drop 3 - cover.jpg

Lovely arms 1&2 cover.jpg

I have published these stories as 2 separate volumes of my little memory books, and they are both included in the compilation. I have variously published them under my maiden name of Jones, or the amalgam of my names, Davies-Jones.

In Volume 1, I write about my life up to the age of eleven in 1959 and back as far as 1918, when my grandparents married.

In Volume 2  I venture into the 1960s, with all the pitfalls and surprises that could bring. It was not my intention to shock, embarrass or otherwise bring unwanted attention to others, so I  may have left some details out.


If anyone is looking for inspiring prose, this is not for you. I haven’t tried to raise the literary level in these little books. It’s a quick march through 21 years of my life, listing events, recalling some tiny details that won’t mean anything to others, but which have stayed with me.

However the content is suitable for all students studying a range of courses or none, in that it covers a number of mathematical areas which often require revision and/or additional explanation, examples or solutions..

Hello Harri

The Tale of Smiler the 6-legged Spider
by R W Prosser

Spiders have 8 legs as we know - but Smiler manages to have fun, be happy, and get the better of cats and crows even though he only has 6. He is friendly and loveable and his story will make all spiders a little less scary!

Full colour, large print.

The Adventures of 3 Magical Friends
Alana Beth Jenkins (aged 6)

The 3 magical friends and their pets go on an adventure to save their little sisters. More adventures follow!

Alana loves to read, and she loves to have stories read to her. She also loves mermaids, fairies and princesses, so she decided to write a book about them.

This is an adventure story that she told to her grandmother, who wrote it down for her. Alana did most of the drawings herself, although she did trace a few, and had a bit of help with some.

Words to the Wise

ellie cover 4 with text.jpg

Some words of wisdom, and some of humour., written for an 18th birthday.

Not to be taken too seriously in every case …


A shortening of the phrase

' word to the wise is sufficient'

meaning that a wise or intelligent person can take a hint and does not need a long explanation.

A Baby Shower Book

A little book to replace an actual Baby Shower, not possible during lockdown.

'To show how much you’re loved,

To show how much we care,

We’ve put this book together

For Hannah & Gareth to share'


'What we did  …

We’ve all chipped in to this little book. Our contributions vary in length, as well as the number and quality of pictures, but we all wanted to do something to help celebrate your up-coming labour and birth, and let you know we’re thinking about you. It’s written as a series of messages to Hannah, although of course it’s for Gareth too.'
