A #DiscoveringDiamonds review!

My blog posts may seem rather few and far between of late (to you and me both – apologies!), but sometimes even I just have to down tools on other chores to share something with you.

And today that something is a fabulous review of Right Trusty and Well Beloved… from Discovering Diamonds – and indeed from DD’s founder Helen Hollick herself, no less.

Helen calls the book ‘an excellent and entertaining series of short stories  and poems … some are exciting, some amusing, some tragic and will make you cry…. I read much of my copy while waiting for an appointment. I was so absorbed I almost missed my name being called…’

Helen also gives a special mention for ‘Corners of my Mind’ by Richard Tearle, ‘the raw emotion in the story made me cry’.

The rest of this fantastic review can be read at:


Copies of the book itself can be bought at: mybook.to/RightTrusty – or direct from me (see contact page)!

DD’s previous reviews of The Order of the White Boar and The King’s Man can be found here:



Thank you to Helen and her colleagues for the review! And Happy Mardi Gras (if that’s an appropriate greeting!)
