This was originally written as an autobiography based on the first twenty years of my life in India. On the advice of several publishers, I re-wrote it as a novel which was published by AuthorsOnLine who can be found on www.authorsonline.co.uk
Another Indian feast is laid before you, but seen through a different pair of eyes. Twist the kaleidoscope, and a changed but equally brilliant picture is displayed. This fantasy of Sadhus and Indian Potentates is set in the romantic era towards the end of the British Raj and weaves a story of magic and intrigue. A young Avatar takes us amongst cobras and tigers, through the forests of central India to the opulent palaces of wealthy Maharajas. We travel through the ‘Valley of the Gods,’ on the borders of Tibet, before experiencing a thrilling and unexpected finale in the mountains of Wales.
REVIEW BY MIKE BUCKINGHAM OF THE SOUTH WALES ARGUS
One Day As A Tiger is set in India in the last days of the Raj and tells of two boys from two cultures brought together by fate. The title is taken from the saying 'It is better to have lived one day as a tiger than a hundred years as a sheep'. And I have to say his book is a powerfully- driven story set against a richly-described background in prose superior to those of many authors who seem to take conventional publication for granted.
REVIEW ON AMAZON
This is a book that has everything, history, romance, mystery and a sense of being in India at the time. Most of all it is highly imaginative and extremely colourful. The descriptions of places, of food, of customs and events is compelling. Spoilt and inebriated Maharajas, snake charmers, secret service agents and mystic Sadhus all add appeal.
