An Alternative Christmas Message for Peter Humphrey

Cull & Co. author Peter Humphrey hit the front pages over the festive period in an extraordinary story.

A six-year-old schoolgirl from London found a desperate plea from inmates at Chinese Qingpu prison, Shanghai, inside a Tesco charity Christmas card.

Tesco suspended the Chinese supplier of the Christmas cards last Sunday and said it had launched an investigation.

Peter and his wife Ying are currently working on a memoir about their own experiences inside the same prison, after being arrested by the Chinese government while working as corporate fraud investigators on charges that were never heard in court.

A Personal Tribute to Dan Proops

It is with deep sadness to hear the news that our writer and friend Dan Proops tragically passed away this week.

Dan lived to write. His dedication to his craft was immense and his debut novel A LETTER FROM SARAH was published this past March to much critical and reader acclaim. Dan had so much more to publish and looked set to enjoy a long writing career, which makes this loss even harder to accept.

Dan was sweet, sensitive and loved collaborating as well, never too precious and eager to move on to the next challenge. In his trademark leather motorcycle jacket, he was a fixture at the Groucho Club and was an immensely popular figure in the writing community.

Taken too soon, we have lost one of the good guys and I am proud to have had the opportunity to work with and know Dan. Our thoughts are with his family and loved ones at this most difficult time.

Rest in Peace.
