Carer, John, has fictional book published

Carers 20 January 2023

We wanted to share with you a brilliant good news story about one of our registered carers who has recently had a fictional book published!

John Bradley, who lives in Astley, stands proudly here with his book, “What’s Beyond the Garden Gate” and published by Austin Macauley Publishers Ltd.

He tells us how he came to write the book:

“I am a carer for my daughter and I found myself alone and isolated a good deal of the time, as many carers do. So, one day a couple of years ago, I thought as I had an unusual life, I was inspired to write a book.

This book is about how a small decision or fate can completely change your perspective on life, and maybe one’s life for better or worse. This is the case for Dave, a character in this book – by chance he stepped beyond his garden gate, to find twists and turns through romance, mystery, imprisonment, treachery, and love. The story ends with a remarkable twist.”

John’s book is available to buy from Amazon, Austin Macauley, and most large book chains. Here is a link to the publishers site.

John says, “I would like to thank the The Carers Centre who have helped me to gain friendship and remove the isolation I was feeling as a carer. My dreams of writing a published book have now become a reality!”

John – we are so VERY proud of you, you are a huge inspiration to others, congratulations on this personal achievement.
