Brixham’s famous Berry Head lighthouse – Britains’ tallest or shortest, depending how you measure it – is featured in a new book by Devon crime writer Nick Fletcher.
Nick, who lives at Hill Head, near Brixham, normally writes novels featuring a tough private eye, but this new book shows his softer side – it is a book of love poems. Several are inspired by Devon seascapes, and one describes a romantic incident at Brixham’s Berry Head lighthouse.
The book, ‘Lost Avenues’ (Classic Books) also features a cover illustration by Bodmin-based landscape photographer Helen Hotson.
Says Nick: “I’ve spent many years reporting crime and writing crime thrillers, but I’ve always had an ambition to write poetry about love and relationships, and ‘Lost Avenues’, my second poetry book, explores these themes, capturing situations or sometimes even just moments of love which I feel most people will relate to. Several of the poems were inspired by the beautiful Devon scenery, especially the seascapes.”
The book ‘Lost Avenues’ is available from www.nickfletcher.co.uk also on Amazon, eBay, and in Another Chapter bookshop in Brixham.Follow
