The gem cut from the Eureka Diamond discovered in 1867 on the bank of the Orange River at the Farm De Kalk. The fist diamond discovered in South Africa.
The 10.7 carat Eureka gem is not the biggest or the best diamond to come from South Africa BUT IT WAS THE FIRST! My second novel The Forbidden Zone http://amzn.to/2GSdxcv is about Nazi diamond smugglers in the weeks before WW2. #author #WW2novels #Kindle
The Forbidden Zone https://amzn.to/2GSdxcv is available on Amazon in paperback and Kindle formats. Its about Nazis diamond smugglers and their ruthless quest to restore a stolen homeland. Harvey Tremayne is the one person who can stop them.
Below are a set of recently found and extremely rare blue diamonds from the famous Cullinan Mine in South Africa. Its still producing fabulous gem stones after more man a century of production.
In my first novel, Break in Communication, the focal point of the plot is Porthcurno Telegraph Station in Cornwall. The story is fiction but the location is factual and was one of the most heavily guarded facilities in Britain in WW2. In addition to hundreds of troops guarding the area, it was heavily camouflaged and bristling with guns of all calibres. The photo below shows a Porthcurno Pill Box disguised as a Bus Stop.
My new action thriller novel The Forbidden Zone https://amzn.to/2GSdxcv is set in the diamond rich Namib Desert of former German South West Africa. The cold Benguela fog that regularly smothers the desert coast is at the heart of the story. It would make an ideal winter read or perhaps a 'stocking filler' for Christmas.
A big thankyou to Seven Circumstances for the review of The Forbidden Zone. I hope it whets your appetite for reading an action-thriller on these cold winter evenings.
My youngest reader settling down with The Forbidden Zone in front of the fire. Or perhaps watching Peppa Pig on TV? Thank you for the photo Olivia Begent.

With 102nd anniversary of the Armistice days away, what was life like for our ancestors on the western front in 1918?
If you had an ancestor who fought on the western front in 1918, have you ever wondered about the conditions they fought in and the military regime they fought under? Whilst specific to the 6th Battalion Dorsetshire Regiment, Mud Blood and Bayonet, the book describes the daily life that would have been typical for the soldiers who fought in 1918. From the murderous onslaught of the German Spring Offensive to the final push and victory on the 11th November 1918. The information has been collated from battalion, regimental and person diaries. http://amzn.to/2jE2WGd #WW1OnThisDay #ww1centenary #ww1
My first military history book, Mud, Blood and Bayonet was released on 1 Jan 2018. It is a history of the 6th Dorsetshire Regiment in 1918, day by day, for them the bloodiest year of the war.
