Read full description of the books Solitary Pleasures:Phyllida Law: '...it's been lovely reading about Mattie. Any actress would love to play her.'
The year is nineteen-ninety-five and Mattie, an original eccentric who lives on a decrepit houseboat called The Ark, has been in the habit of disappearing since she was a little girl. She calls these episodes of time to herself her Solitary Pleasures.
She is now knocking seventy and the family have gathered in the luxurious setting of her nephew’s large mock-Tudor house to discuss what’s to be done about her latest escapade – falling into the canal and driving home stark naked.
Mattie refuses to be bullied into behaving, but a shocking yet hilarious incident at an Animal Rights protest leads to Mattie’s arrest and results in her little dog Spike being wanted by the police. There’s nothing for it but to disappear again.
As Spike and Mattie retrace her footsteps of twenty years earlier along the South Downs Way, tantalizing her family with a paper-trail of Mattie's dotty poems, only one thing is certain, and that is that no one in the story will ever be quite the same again.
Read information about the authorNell Grey is an artist and writer of eccentric and often witchy fiction. She is fascinated by cusps and borderlines - how does love become obsession, eccentricity madness?
Her poems, short stories, articles and reviews have appeared both online and in magazines such as Smith's Knoll, Iota, Orbis and others.
Three novels - Solitary Pleasures, The Golden Web and Three Magic Women - have been published both in print form and as Kindle e-books. My Imaginary Life, Memoirs of an Ostrich, Solitary Pleasures and Solstice, a collection of magical short stories, are Kindle e-books.
Nell has a passion for the natural world, archaic mystery, myth and legend and those places where fact and fiction cross and mingle. Most of her stories and poems ferment and distill while walking with her dog on the South Downs.
