A PROUD author from Daventry is set to see his first book hit the shelves.

Dominic Luke, who lives in Danetre Drive, has written the book Aunt Letitia which is all about a 91-year-old woman who is looking to cling on to life to see her dearly loved great-nephew happy and settled.

Mr Luke said: “The book has come from my interest in history and for the past.

“I wrote it a little while ago but just had to be persistent and approach several publishers until somebody said yes.

“It has taken a little while for it to sink in but I am very pleased.”

He has already signed a contract for another book which is due for release in November this year.

Aunt Letitia will be available to purchase from book shops from Thursday, May 31 with a recommended retail price of £19.99.
