Zappa's Mam's a Slapper

By John Lynch

General fiction, Young adult | Paperback, eBook

Billy McErlane wants to be the world's only recluse celeb. Having gone to jail at the age of fourteen for the murder of his stepfather doesn't make it easy, and nor does having a harlot for a mother. But when Billy is reunited with his childhood sweetheart, peace enters his heart. Then fate deals a wrecking blow. The last thing Billy needs is Dillon, a four-year-old with a background as unpromising as his. A bittersweet story of love, loss and one young man's refusal to accept what life offers...

John Lynch is an international salesman. He has lived and done business on every continent except Antarctica and knows Lagos, Jeddah and Abu Dhabi as well as the Shropshire countryside where he now lives. And yet, when he writes fiction he turns often to Newcastle, the city he left when he was eighteen. As R J Lynch he also writes the James Blakiston Series of historical crime/romance novels set in the 1760s.

If only all Amazon reviews could be like this :-)
***** Unpredictable and uplifting
John Lynch has certainly found his literary voice in this very realistic delivery of the life story of a disadvantaged soul, Billy McErlane. Billy learns to forgive, let go of the bad things in life, accept with grace the good things and finally reach out to others. 'Zappa’s Mam’s a Slapper' grasped my attention from the first page to the last, with Billy showing me through his eyes and words his ups and downs. Real, honest and insightful.
