About Tim Robson
Mostly writing short stories these days. They appear online or in book format, in high priced dust jackets or on my website www.timrobson.eu
Some thoughts on Franco's Fiesta:-
The novel was handwritten and then edited into my laptop. Parts of it were written in a village outside Valencia which is the area where the action takes place. If you close your eyes and imagine the slightly spicy aroma of wild fennel, a soft breeze running through the citrus groves and a hot sun burning down, then you're in Franco's Fiesta territory.
Whilst there are Burton and Taylor similarities in my main characters, I've used the concept of a celebrity couple in 1970 as the starting point, not as a facsimile. The characters are created with love, not malice, and I hope fans of Dick n' Liz will enjoy this tale.

Something to tell Jessie by John Lilley
Warring Hollywood couple William Roberts and Marta Swift are in Valencia to make a movie financed by the regime. Film, fiesta and fascism collide in this story about the end of more than one era.
Be careful who you trust.
"William regarded the exit of his wife with equanimity; after seven years of marriage, their fights were as legendary as their pay cheques. She was foul mouthed to his scrupulous articulation. He was rugged to her beauty. They were total opposites but conspired to play along with the world's need for romance."
