Author’s book praised on literature website

BEVERLEY author Roger K Driscoll has seen his first published work named as one of this year’s top ten books.
Echo McCool Outlaw Through Time was praised by independent literature comparison website www.goodreads.com
The children’s fantasy novel aimed at 9 to 12-year-olds is now on sale at WHSmith book store in Toll Gavel, Beverley.
Mr Driscoll, of Curlew Close, Molescroft, said: “I’ve been scribbling for years, but this is the first one that’s been published.”
The author grew up in the Beverley area and was inspired to write because of his enjoyable childhood.
His story about a magical medieval girl linking up for adventures with a 12-year-old runaway is set in a mythical place called Oswaldley.
But the author said: “It’s based on Beverley and the East Riding. I’ve used different place names, but they’re all linked to this area. “Oswaldley is really Beverley, Witch Wood is Burton Bushes and Hazelby is Driffield.”
The book is published by Grosvenor House Publishing, one of the directors of which is respected Yorkshire author GP Taylor.
