A Message from the Author:

“As a Brit transplanted in Canada, my spirit will always reach back to my roots. That is where Traditional English Recipes has played a huge role in our life. While these recipes may be straightforward, they are delicious. From Christmas Pudding to Fish & Chips, main courses to desserts and everything in between, with a little imagination you too can make them your own.

This cookbook (as with all my subsequent books) has a special purpose. It is to make a difference. There are several charities that have a special place in my heart. Each book that I write will go to different organizations that rely on our help to succeed. That is why a portion of the proceeds from my “cook books” are going to be donated to the Cancer Society and to Food Banks, my Natural Dog Biscuit Recipe Books will donate to Humane Societies and Shelters, my Children’s books will go to Children’s Hospitals and Ronald McDonald House, etc..”

This book is the first in the Traditional Old English (British) Recipes Series.

The Tailor’s Needle by Lakshmi Raj Sharma
Multicultural Literary Fiction


The Tailor’s Needle

by Lakshmi Raj Sharma
Cambridge educated Sir Saraswati Chandra Ranbakshi is a towering public figure in early twentieth century India. A firm believer in the ideals of Mahatma Gandhi, he also has faith in the virtues of the British Raj. As a result, he has to mediate between the Maharaja of a princely state and the Viceroy and strike a fine balance between tradition and modernity. This tussle between old and new values is reflected in his three children – the daredevil Maneka, the timid Sita, and their brother, Yogendra, who turns their father’s world upside down by falling in love with a lower-caste girl.

A comedy of manners laced with intrigue and excitement, The Tailor’s Needle explores some of the great moral dilemmas of pre-independent India with wit and sensitivity.

Meet the Author: Alicia Airey

At age twenty-four Alicia Airey packed up her suitcase and crossed the globe to live in London – a city where anything can happen. Much of her inspiration comes from this vibrant city where she continually jots down novel ideas in one of her many notebooks.

Alicia Airey never fails to find a pen (at the bottom of her handbag, shoved in her glove box or stuffed in the back of her ponytail). She writes books with plots that twist and turn and her aim is to always entertain.

Alicia Airey is a full time writer of commercial women’s fiction. She has lived in London for the last seven years in a garden flat with her husband, James. Alicia is often visited by two stray cats, Sunny and Dark Knight, who sometimes dare to enter and prowl around her house (without being invited), and keep her company whilst she writes.

Alicia was born in 1981 in Australia and grew up in the most beautiful place in the world, which seems now more like a dream, the Gold Coast in Australia.

NOHO – A Good old-fashioned hardboiled thriller


James Davis delivers a gritty Noir tale with his newest release called Noho. The novel takes place in Soho, London sometime in the 1930’s. His character Nick Valentine takes us right into the seedy sections and leads us on a world wind tour as he attempts to solve a murder, protect his dame and figure out who the good guys are. Noho is a good, old-fashioned hardboiled thriller.

When a dead dancing girl with all the wrong connections is found with Nick Valentine’s name scrawled on a scrap of paper in her pocket, life gets complicated for the disgraced Great War hero.

Unwillingly drawn into a web of espionage and crime in the underbelly of 1930’s London, Nick soon discovers that who killed her may be less important than why. With British Intelligence leaning on Nick to use his underworld connections to investigate the girl’s killing, it soon becomes clear that there’s more to the murder than meets the eye.

Nick soon finds himself at odds not just with the authorities, but on the wrong side of Soho’s gangland bosses and pursued by a foreign spy ring. Trawling Fitzrovia and Soho’s demi-monde of clubs, cabarets and pubs for answers, Nick realises that the stakes go beyond national security, and that no one can be trusted.

As the net closes and the case draws to an increasingly bloody conclusion, Nick is left to tie up the loose ends at a terrible personal cost.

This dark and brooding thriller lifts the covers on a fascinating 1930s’ London few know, while the plot’s twists and turns keep the reader guessing right up to the final page.


Meet The Author:  James Davis

A keen writer since early childhood, whilst studying psychology at college James continued to write, both fiction and increasingly, commentary and opinion on the burgeoning dance music scene. It was perhaps inevitable that after university James would end up spending his nights hunched over a keyboard in a squat in London’s Fitzrovia, scratching a living from writing freelance magazine commissions whilst working on his fiction. These formative years are a key inspiration for the setting of Noho.

Journalistic success of sorts beckoned and in 1997 after a spell travelling the US James had a short story published in a travel anthology, Travellers Tales From Heaven and Hell, (Eye Books, 1997) and his freelance work led to him joining the legendary Ministry of Sound club as part of the team that launched Ministry magazine. Contributions to The Face, Mixmag, Seven, The UK Club Guide, Metro, The Times and many more were to follow.

Whilst professionally James became increasingly involved in the commercial side of the fast developing digital media business, working in senior roles for Warner Bros, News International and MTV, among others, his passion for writing never diminished. He continued to fill his spare time crafting novels and observing London’s demi-monde of nightclubs, boozers and cabarets, developing a passion for Art Deco style and burlesque, as well as a taste for Martinis.

A keen traveller, James now splits his time between London and Ibiza and is married. He spends his spare time reading, writing and doing his best to stay in shape. Noho is his debut novel, but certainly not his last. GET YOUR COPY TODAY!


More About James:

What inspired you to become a writer?
I’ve loved writing since childhood. I used to write short stories as a child, and was always starting novels, but never getting beyond the first twenty or so pages! Through school and university fiction writing took a back seat to assignments, but I picked it up again and started writing in earnest in my early twenties. It’s just something I love.

Does your location inspire you?
Ibiza definitely inspires – but it also distracts – it’s so beautiful, and there’s so much going on. I have the seed of an idea for a novel set in Ibiza that I keep jotting ideas down on at the moment…
How much does the level of creativity that exists on the island motivate your writing?
What’s great about the island is that there is so much creativity here across so many different fields: music, art, fashion, it’s definitely inspiring and seeing other people creating does drive you forward.

Do you have plans to follow up Noho and if so, can you tell us about them?
Definitely! As I said, I have an idea about a novel set in Ibiza, I’ve got some ideas jotted down for the second Noho, and I actually already have a short story prequel, Valentine in Paris, that I wrote while in Ibiza, out on Kindle. On top of that, I’m reworking a gritty urban London thriller and working on a non-fiction title that I hope to have some news on later in the year. Prioritising and finding time is my problem at the moment, but I hope to have another fiction novel out this year.
