Happy Yorkshire Day to you all, whether you are from the Land of the White Rose or not. As you may, or may not, know (if not, where have you been?) I’m from Yorkshire myself, and I’m reet proud of the fact. Yorkshire is a beautiful and diverse county, and to celebrate its special day, I’ve decided to not only show you some fabulous photographs of the place, but to also give away a prize! Yes! Who says we Yorkshire folk are tight?
Lots of these places have inspired me in my writing. All my books are set in Yorkshire, and I love to visit the locations and imagine my characters walking around, living their lives in these beautiful settings. The Kearton Bay books were set on the North Yorkshire coast, around Robin Hood’s Bay and Whitby. This Other Eden is based in the fictional area of Skimmerdale, which was inspired by the real life Swaledale in the northern Yorkshire Dales.
If you’d like to win a signed copy of This Other Eden, just send me your details through the Contact Me page, and I’ll pick one winner at random. Competition closes on Friday evening at 8pm.
Happy Yorkshire Day!
