Can you believe what you see?
Let me ask you that another way. Can you really, unquestionably believe what you see?
Can you really, unquestionably believe that anything you have seen actually exists, even though you have touched it?
Bill Colbert thinks he inherited a field. Although this, in itself, is a surprise, more surprising is the manor house, five cottages and Trout stream that are all part of the inheritance.
Little did Bill realise that he inherited a nightmare. A nightmare that will make him question his own sanity.
Five cottages, all with rose bordered picture windows that hide the simplicity of the lives that live in those cottages.
Five cottages, all with secrets of their own.
Five secrets, hidden behind those rose bordered windows. Secrets that have been forgotten with the passage of time. Secrets that should be forgotten.
Dark secrets. Secrets that no one wants repeated.
Born in Sheffield in 1950 Bill is now retired and lives with Sheila, his wife of over fifty-three years. He has enjoyed a diverse life, fulfilling varied roles in the army, in employment and in retirement.
In 1966, at the age of 15½, he joined the army and enjoyed many overseas postings, with extended tours in Northern Ireland, France, Cyprus, Kenya, Iran, Bermuda and the USA. He culminated his Army career in 1977 as an instructor at his regiment’s depot.
After leaving the army, Bill has been employed as a surveyor, lecturer, technical adviser to an insurer and, just prior to retirement, as a self-employed health and safety consultant.
Bill is a published author and is also a published music composer and arranger.
