Local author featured in British press

Northland author Roy Vaughan, who published his debut thriller THE MERELEIGH RECORD CLUB TOUR OF NEW ZEALAND in 2009, has in the lead-up to Christmas featured in The Bucks Free Press in the United Kingdom (see article right).

Vaughan based the fictional club in his crime novels - the second of which, THE MERELEIGH RECORD CLUB TOUR OF JAPAN, has just been published - on a real-life music-lovers club he was part of in Marlow in the UK in the 1950s before immigrating to New Zealand.

Vaughan, who is a former journalist with the New Zealand Herald (read his recollection of an encounter with Dame Ngaio Marsh here) and now runs a specialist educational travel business, intends for his thriller series to be a trilogy.
