Hi Bernard, It’s the first time I’ve visited anyone’s web page. what a delight! I’m a big fan and buy everything you publish. I was delighted to confirm my feelings about Matthew Dodd, Uhtred is terrific! can,t wait to read the next one. After reading your Sharpe series I took my son on a motorcycle tour around the peninsular battlefields. What an eyeopener, The tourist official at Almeida says you have a lot to answer for, did you see the sign by the remains of the castle? Booam! I wish you and your family every success and thanks for the pleasure you’ve brought to millions. Take heed of the speech my father always gave at family events. ‘Live long and die happy!’ regards Roy Manton. P.S. Come visit us in Bulgaria and I’ll show you how the goat herding business works.
