And just who is the mysterious discharged soldier Ken Bullen, appearing in Norfolk in 1917, intent on reclaiming his lost life and love? What happened to these two men fighting for their country in a bygone era of romance, violence, shell-shock and fragile new beginnings? The Imposter: A Norfolk Romance will reveal all…
It took Chris ten weeks to write but ten years to publish, but that’s another story. It’s available from Amazon and Book Depository and is coming to Waterstones.
