synopsis of a witch London Calling

London Calling – a feel-good romantic comedy set in the 90s. When 29-year-old Taunton-based Erin Goodleigh learns that an old boyfriend is a successful writer in London, she is astonished. Back in sixth-form, when they co-wrote the school play, she practically carried the lazy worm. So how did he do it and – more importantly – is it too late for her to fulfil her side of the vow they made to become successful writers?

Follow Erin’s adventures in London – with old university friend Trish, two-faced ex-boyfriend Ian and motorcycle messenger-writer Paul – as she pursues her dream armed only with hope, determination and a second-hand Amstrad computer.

Review of a witch

London Calling is an absolutely delightful read. Erin is a wonderful heroine, and we cheer when she escapes her noxious fiancé, and heads for her dream career as a BBC writer.

Yes, she fails, tries again, almost makes it, fails, almost makes it again, falls in love with an unavailable man who then becomes available…but only for a while.

Of course, we’ve all been there: fighting to attain a dream, not quite managing; then coming to realise that alternatives can be just as satisfying; falling in love and discovering it’s even better when we have to wait.

About the author of a witch

Mark Daydy

Over the past 20 years, I’ve written extensively for TV and radio in the UK and I’m currently developing a TV sitcom (optioned by NBC-Universal).

I love reading heart-warming, humorous novels about life’s little ups and downs, so it’s hardly a shock that I’ve started writing them myself. In my stories, I look to bring the feel-good factor (laughter and, perhaps, a few tears) to romance and relationships, changing careers, moving home, family upheaval, growing up, and a whole host of other bumps in the road.

If you’re a fan of Nick Spalding, David Nicholls, Jon Rance, Mike Gayle, Matt Dunn and Nick Hornby, your horoscope says it’s a very good time to buy my books.
