Solomon’s Magpie

With Solomon’s Magpie Robert Crompton returns to his favourite haunts in Cheshire to disentangle a story told by Solomon Whitaker, boatman, basket-maker, and brewer. Solomon heard the story from his mother and went to the trouble of learning to read and write so that he could set it down. Generations later, fifteen-year-old Judy must try to create a readable version of the tale. But there’s a problem – a large part of the story is missing, and it’s clearly the most important part. Supported by her unlikely friendships with Twirl and Tracey, Judy fills in the gaps herself. Nobody believes her, however, because she is a compulsive spinner of yarns and teller of tall tales. Nobody will be really sure of what happened unless the missing pages can be found – and with them Solomon’s magpie.

Robert Crompton. Can't always make up my mind whether I'm a Lancashire man or a Cheshire man. A bit of both really, I suppose. Work and education have taken me to Scotland, Cambridge, County Durham, Yorkshire and South Wales. I'm living now in Cardiff.

Writing has been part of my life for many years and I've published non-fiction. (You'll find my previous self out there in Amazon.) I've recently completed a novel, Bunderlin, and am well into my second. Can't imagine going back to non-fiction now.

Since writing the above I have finished that second novel. It is now published on Kindle as Leaving Gilead. And now I am starting a third with the working title - which is sure to change in due course - Whitaker's Basin.
