Written on the Road was exactly that. A collection of poems written over the course of many travels, describing the highs and lows of life and love, family, friends, homes and the glorious countryside, as Elizabeth Gates and her husband, Eric, toured the country from Land’s End to John O’Groats, in their trusty Fiat campervan.
Inspirational, sincere and sometimes heart-breaking in their honesty, the poems within Written on the Road are one women’s view of her life, experiences and the world “as is”.
A beautiful and unique collection.
Compiled and edited by David E. Gates. Available to order from here.
Earlier this week, I had an opportunity to “sell” to a lady at a train station a copy of my book, Access Denied. She said she loved true stories and I warned her that people had told me that once they started reading it, they couldn’t put it down. She bought a copy of it right in front of me and downloaded it instantly to her Kindle.
The next day, I saw her again. “Oh my God! I couldn’t put it down!” She told me. There’s something very nice, very rewarding, about hearing that directly from the reader.

Mind Blood is a brilliant little book of short stories – some had me thinking… One or two made me giggle and a few were quite impossible not to question if it could happen to you… or has it yet to happen?? So many little twists and lots of blood – my poor brain has had to have a holiday!! Well done to David for a book I can pick up again and again to quench my thirst of little short stories without having to leave the light on but keep me awake thinking… Drip Drip drip… Is anybody there? It’s just a book… Let your imagination run amok with this little gem of a book. Go on. I dare you.
