Gala writer published

A GALASHIELS writer has released his first book.

David Turnbull, who now lives in south-east London, has put together The Tale of Euan Redcap, a children’s fantasy novel – a story of kidnap and intrigue with strong environmental themes.

It was described by another children’s author, Thomas Bloor, as “a fast paced, rollicking adventure, an airborne Moby Dick featuring 12-year-old Euan Redcap and a fine cast of scurvy dragon hunters”.

David is now working on a sequel.
