Pioneers of Diversity


We're currently building dedicated web, Facebook and Pinterest pages, with photos, bios and links, celebrating pioneers of diversity in politics, culture and the arts, with the emphasis on Post-War Britain.  It's all still in its early stages, and any suggestions and contributions will be gratefully received.  Feel free to get in touch through Facebook, or contact us direct here.

Although the principal characters in the Armstrong and Burton novels are wholly fictitious, a number of real people make cameo appearances, and many of the events that underpin the narrative really happened. 

Visit these pages to find out more about the real history behind the stories,

the leading characters, and the world in which they lived and worked.

Post-war popular culture in Britain plays a big part in the stories as well, and inspiration has been drawn from a wide variety of sources.  Find out more on the Author's Note and Faves and Recommendations pages.

Therefore, we have committed ourselves to being an environmentally friendly company, implementing the use of FSC paper in all our books and promotional material and actively encouraging writers to correspond and submit to us electronically..."
