review of Book 1


martinbowesI AM ENJOYING the wonderfully descriptive prose of Twill Folk. Indeed it is so beautifully written that I can see and feel the intensity of the colours, the character of the characters, the warmth of the sun etc.

It is hard to imagine that anyone could bring so much colour to words on paper…..wonderful book Amrita.

a new book review


twillflag02I BOUGHT this book for a friend after reading extracts and hearing some of the spoken word. It certainly evokes feelings of a Middle Ages alternate reality where characters seem to appear with hidden messages with a feeling that there is more to be foretold. I like the way the author actually seems to be telling the story as if relating from the time and place itself. An unusual and interesting book especially with the addition of maps etc to help the reader visualise the setting to the fullest. I look forward to the future additions in this series.

another book review


michaelhuntI AM a born and bred Devonshire boy. As I listened to the chapter ‘Of the Tales Told by the Fireside in the Pipers’ I was taken to that place – and it was wonderful! I was in that book, and such were the descriptions that I could hear the creaking door hinges and I could smell the fire.

I love the moors and creaky doors and olde worlde stuff; and I love this book. With its picturesque details and authentic Devonian characters and dialogues it took me right there – to an old pub somewhere on the edge of the moor.

Charming and atmospheric, but realistic and well researched: The author has certainly done the home-work on our folklore.

It is a wonderful book. Fantastic, amazing and wonderful!

Testimonial from my client:

“I’m very glad that someone has introduced me to Amrita; and I asked her to do some pictures on the walls for me, ’cause she’d showed me the work she had done in the past. I’m very happy with what she had done with my flat – the rooms are now comfy; I feel more relaxed and my insomnia is gone. Before I had trouble sleeping – now I look at the moon and fall asleep quickly.”
