Cornwall has always provided inspiration for artists, be they writers, painters or poets. We have a rich cultural past and present. This section celebrates local writers. We include people who live here or who write about the area. This is an ever expanding list so please contact us to include writers we may have overlooked.

We have included links to the writer’s websites or social media pages if appropriate. In other cases we may link to Amazon. At this time we make no income from our links to Amazon.


This is a humorous memoir beginning in a derelict, centuries old farmhouse, perched high on a hill near the Mevagissey.

Wrecks and smuggling, saving injured seals, running a bed and breakfast, doing the school run, with waves washing over the car. Learning to adapt to Cornish life, the rich tapestry unfolds with never a dull moment. The reader is invited to enjoy a bit of Cornish magic.
