My latest book "Death on The Canal Boat," is out there in e-format ready to download on your e-reader or your laptop (I think) 

On to other things. I'm writing the sequal to "Death On The Canal Boat." Bringing in one of the secondary characters. He is a well known stamp collector

He is on holiday in th village where Lady Mary lives. They are second cousins, once removed (whatever that means) He has a blonde woman friend whom he has left behind in the town where he has stored  his stamp collection in a bank vault. A simple tale until a dark haired woman arrives on the scene. I shall leave you there because the sun has set and the sky is darkening and I feel calm and free to sit down and have a glass of sherry.

What happens tomorrow?

Anita Birt - Story Teller

I know you are buying my book, "Death on the Canal Boat." It's a page turner and I say that bcause I wrote it and would not give you bad advie.

In the meantime, my thoughts seek someting new and interesting about which to write. I've decided that FEET are worth spending time with.

Do you think about your feet? If not, you should. I've been walking on my feet since I began walking when I was one year old! Think about that! I am now 93 years old so my feet are a very important part of me. Do I pay attention to them? Only when they hurt otherwise my feet do their thing - they keep on going. I get up in the morning, shower and get dressed. I put on my shoes and start my day.

FEET, unllike my heart, lungs, kidneys, bowels and bladder they go about their daily business of walking and keeping  me upright. I expect a lot from my feet and don't tell them how much they mean to me. Right now I am wiggling them in my shoes and they feel good  - and then I foret about them.

How often to you think about your feet and what they mean to you? Take a few seconds and think about them. Let your feet know how important they are to your general health. When your feet hurt they can spoil your day and make you cranky and out of sorts.So make this day, November 19 feet appreciation day.

FEET APPRECIATION DAY! If my feet could smile they would as I am smiling now.

My latest book, DEATH ON THE CANAL BOAT - is ready for you to purchase as an e-book. One day in the future I'd like to see it in print but you can enjoy it now as an e-book to down load on what ever device you use.

It's a break out novel for me,  it's a Mystery with twists and turns to keep you turning the pages. So make me happy and buy my book! It's a bargain and you will love it.

I'm at work on a sequal to DEATH ON THE CANAL BOAT.

Writing is an addiction! I don't know how to stop.  And my readers must keep on buying.

I wish you all a happy November. Rest before the madness of the Christmas season arrives. Time flies by and soon I'll celebrate my birthday in February 2017. Looks good so far

ANITA BIRT - A Spinner of Tales


This is my latest  book and am very pleased with it! It is different from the other books I have written so think how much you'll enjoy reading it. My character Lady Mary Carstairs is trying to find the owner of a dirty, hungry dog that wandered into her garden. She is not a dog lover but she can't let a dog go hungry and she is determined to find the owners who abandoned the animal.

. She finds the canal boat the owners had rented. The owners have disappeared. Mary is determined to find the ownership papers for the dog. She opens the hatch on the canal boat and is sickened by the smell of a decaying body.

A police officer is watching the boat waiting for the arrival of detectives to search for clues about the missing renters. Mary wants to go home but the constable on duty insists she stays to make a statement. The last thing she wants is to get involved in the dead man on the canal boat. But she has disturbed the evidence and the detectives who arrive are angry at her for disturbing the crime scene.

And that is how Lady Mary got involved in a murder investigation.  Buy my book,"DEATH ON THE CANAL BOAT." And get involved.
