TALES from inns and pubs have been transformed into a novel written by a Redditch author.
The Travellers’ Rest, written by Mark Pettifer, is now available in print and for Kindle having first been thought of 20 years ago.
It tells the story of staff and customers of an inn who have to defend it from various dangers including fire, flood, poison and a hostile takeover bid.
One Troubled Summer’s Eve, the first title in the four-book story, sets the scene and introduces some of the characters in the series which is set in the Great Elfish Forest.
Mark said: “I never thought that I would try to make a living from writing and illustrating fairy tales, but it turns out that’s just what I’m attempting to do now, having
previously worked in theatre, fashion, film, and having had work published in the BBC Book Of The Future thanks to Douglas Adams.
“The images that I’ve used in my book were the starting point and working at the Golden Cross for a spell helped the story to unfold. I like the way that everyone you meet in an inn or pub has a tale to tell.”
