    Hi Pat, thank you For your lovely Comments, they are so appreciated. I am in the process of writing my next novella called "Ebb and flow" which is centred around the Charley Clays Clothing Factory during the early sixties. The story focuses on different kind of life in North Shields at that time - There's Helen Smith the young woman who dreams of a better life for herself, she wants to live like the rich people. When she marries Thomas Lattimer who is a wealthy banker she discovers that the life that she wanted is all it is made up to be. Jimmy Mulligan who works for Hoults the butchers, lives over the road with his parents he has been in love with Helen since they were at school together. He tells her of his love and that he will wait no matter how long it takes. Allan Forster has been in and out of Borstal for petty crimes he dreams of one big job that will net him enough money - He gets involved with Paddy Leonard a notorious hardman as a power struggle takes place in North shields for supremacy. Paddy Devlin another bouncer come gangster is running a protection racket in the late fifties until he discovers that cannabis can be brought in and sold around the town. it is easy money until Leonard finds out. and then there's Sid McCollough property developer, and wheeler dealer. likes fast cars, pretty women. He is the clever one who will go on to rule the underworld. Ebb and Flow - The story of life on the Fish Quay and the Ridges Estate. The Industrial revolution and the sexual freedom it brought women after the Second World War. A must read.
