Sleeping Kings was a pleasant surprise for me. When I received the email pitch from the author, I wasn't sure if it would be for me, but I decided to give it a go and I'm glad I did as I thoroughly enjoyed it.

At 8 years old I wasn’t much of a reader, in fact for me my bike was my world. If it didn’t have wheels and a chain I wasn’t much interested. This was back in the early 1970’s when television had yet to take a hold on the UK. Then one Saturday I visited a friend's house and they were just settling down to listen to the radio, it was not something that I was accustomed to, but they invited me to ...more
