    Summary

    No-one will be surprised that John Walker joined the Navy. But what is the life of a young officer like, and can a love of small boats be useful when serving in His Majesty's Ships? Will childhood friendships survive the onset of adulthood? Not a continuous narrative, more a selection of scenes as in Forrester's "Midshipman Hornblower".

    Summary

    The third of my stories about the Swallows, Amazons, Ds and Eels as adults, it is now the 1980s. Some of might not make sense if you have not read my previous two stories! (Again written about the characters as adults for readers of the S & A books who are now adults themselves!) - Just realised a story exists here with the same name (hence the change), apologies to the original author!

    Summary

    The second of my stories about the Swallows, Amazons, Ds and Eels as adults based on how they are described in the original books. This is set in the late 1960s, and some of it will not make complete sense if you have not read my first one Different Territory. Once again this is for adults who read the original books as children, not for child readers (there is nothing to offend but my idea is to feature them all in adult novels.)

    Summary

    A story of the Swallows, Amazons, Ds and Eels as adults set in the late 1940s after WWII. The idea is to build on the characters from the original books and explore how they are as adults. It is written for adults who read the books as children so not for child readers (not that there is anything to offend!)

    Summary

    Set spring/ summer 1938. With war increasingly likely, the Admiralty need updated charts of the Baltic Sea. Amateur yachtsmen and women are discretely asked to help with this, under the guise of leisurely pleasure cruising. The Swallow, Amazons and Callums are among them. Naval Lieutenant John Walker has been asked to do a little more than that and Nancy inevitably gets involved the task.
    Involves danger and some (not graphic) violence in a few chapters. A warning will be put at the start of any chapter with a fight.
