And So The Book is Born!

It is an amazing feeling to have my book out in the public domain and to see photos like the one below of it in someone’s hands – but also in a way it’s a little strange – it’s like letting my children go – watching them move off into the world and I can no longer look after them!!

Lucy and Alvaro and the others have been with me and me only since 2018 – but they now need to spread their wings – if you read ‘Let the Dead Hold Your Hand’ I hope you like them as much as I do. Some of them will return in the sequel, hopefully at the end of this year. Thank you to so many of you for your kind words and support along the way and to all of you who have bought it. I wish I could give you all a hug! Happy Reading what ever book you choose or have on the go!

A GREAT FEELING TO SEE SOMEONE I DON’T KNOW HOLDNG A COPY OF MY BOOK AND POPPING IT ON SOCIAL MEDIA…WOW!

Interesada en leer sobre el peligro del ascenso de la extrema derecha o simplemente te apetece un héroe diferente?

La trama de mi novela – Lucy E Hawksmoor, la autoridad sobre todas las cosas árabes, encuentra el presente rompiendo en el pasado, ya que grupos de extrema derecha tratan de detener su búsqueda para encontrar el lugar de descanso final de Boabdil, el último Rey de los Moros. Conoce a la misteriosa y atractiva Gloria cuya familia afirma haber guardado el secreto de su ubicación durante 600 años. Lucy, inconsciente del peligroso mundo al que está entrando, recibe amenazas de muerte y luego un estudiante musulmán es asesinado. Ella está sumida en un mundo de pesadilla, sin saber en quién puede confiar. ¿Es Gloria quien dice ser? ¿Hasta dónde irán sus enemigos para detenerla? A medida que los disturbios arrasan Granada, la búsqueda de la tumba de Boabdil por parte de Lucy se convierte en una bomba de tiempo política, que pondrá en peligro la vida de todos los involucrados.

Nací en Manchester y estudié inglés y drama allí antes de entrar en el mundo de la educación que me puso por un tiempo antes de que lograra escapar a Madrid donde vivo y trabajo. Paso la mayor parte de mi tiempo escribiendo, así como leyendo ampliamente, caminando, a menudo sin rumbo, alrededor de las laberínticas calles de los barrios de esta maravillosa ciudad, tocando la guitarra, viendo gatos y cocinando. Mi primera novela, «Deje que los muertos tengan la mano», me llevó tres años investigar y escribir. Pasé mucho tiempo en las mágicas calles de Córdoba, Granada, Sevilla y Zaragoza leyendo sobre todo árabe y visitando muchos lugares y edificios hermosos. Bebo mucho vino tinto y me encanta escuchar música árabe y guitarra flamenca mientras escribo. Gracias por visitar mi página!

About the author

Keith Bradbury was born in Manchester. He studied English and Drama before going into the world of education which put up with him for more than thirty years before he managed to escape to Spain to write. He spends his time doing just that as well as reading widely, walking around Madrid, playing guitars, watching cats and cooking. His first novel, ‘Let the Dead Hold Your Hand’ took him three years to research and write. He also writes poetry, takes black and white photos of the life he sees around him and enjoys people watching from the terrace outside his favourite local bar on his street where he lives in Madrid.
