The Peacock Writers
Johnny Cooper's holiday
Last year I started to write some stories about a schoolboy called Johnny Cooper for our charity books. The idea was to show you can enjoy life without all the modern gadgets.
The Great War
In the stories, Johnny goes for holidays with his grandfather. I had planned to write a special story for the centenary of WW1, but for several reasons I never did write the story. I cry even now, when I think of the losses of the war; my story of remembrance is From Elgar to Vaughan Williams. This is a sad ghost story of the loss of a way of life, and of the people whose lives were changed forever after the four years of horror.
