|The Field Spaniel – Anecdotes and Observations by Phyllis Goodwin
My first novel was published as an Ebook in March twenty thirteen. This year I published the same book as a paperback in Creatspace (twenty fifteen). The cover was changed so that I could use a photo of my Mother. The story is based on the life-stories of my parents. It covers their very different childhoods and their amazing chance meeting far away in Argentina. Sybil’s job as a Nanny took her to Switzerland and then South America. William worked with A. V. Roe and flew in some of the early bomber planes. After the war he went to Argentina as a Surveyor and Engineer on the British Railways. They lived for some time at the foot of the Andes. Some of the stories and intrigues are purely fictional, especially the spy bits.
The Short Stories in this book have been written over the last twenty-five years. Most of them are about my experiences with my Field Spaniels. Others are about my travels. Some are true and others are figments of my imagination. I am pleased to announce that nine of the articles have been written by other Field Spaniel aficionados. We all have the same thing in common: love for our breed whether showing, working or mostly celebrating them as our pets. My friends and contributors are Rob Ellis, Malcolm Fowkes, Christine Messer, Clive Rowlands, Pamela Rowlands and Howard Taylor. A big thank you for taking part!
