Hiwold is the absorbing story of a wealthy Industrial family carried across several novels. From its origins among the grey moorland heights above an 1830's Tyneside, Newcastle, gripped in the coal black fury, raw steam power and brute ironworks of the heightening Industrial Revolution... to the present day as the powerful Mise family battles to establish a solar research facility in a disused limestone quarry and demolish a Grade II listed Tithe Barn to extend an Architectural practice officed among the giant beechwoods behind Hiwold Manor. The conservationists ranked against; the shrewd determinations for; the devious timings to achieve. All – the Manor House, the colourful cottage characters and Hiwold's own venturous family circle - very much real world centric to modern day lives in the early hi-tech years of this century, whilst ever seeking the history of their 1837 origins - of an unwanted son, a bastard, of his given false surname and homeless fortunes as Will Mise rises with the coming of the Railways in the 1840's - steam engine pioneers carving tracks and massive construction needs across England... up to 1892 with his arrival aged55, a self-made, rugged and wealthy Midlands Industrialist, to the walled village estate and dilapidated 16th century Manor House of Hiwold in the serene English Cotswolds.

Green Amber the first novel is of present day. Secret Sperm the second, reveals the Mise family's murky 1837 origins. Whilst Iced Red the third novel, continues unabated the search and battles of the first, Green Amber.
