Chris Crowther spent 42 years of his working life flying aeroplanes and helicopters in various parts of the world, mainly West Africa as Chief Pilot of a helicopter operation, and where his first books were written. After hanging up his flying helmet, he skippered passenger boats on the Norfolk Broads where he now lives with his wife Sue, rowing and sailing while plotting his next “Jack Fellows” adventure.

THE “JACK FELLOWS” SERIES OF MURDER AND MYSTERY

Dastardly deeds are not something you automatically associate with Norfolk, but local author Chris Crowther has gone even further and used the tranquil magic of Broadland as the setting for his series of whodunits.

The sleuth in these stories is Jack Fellows, a navigation ranger with the Broads Authority, who spends his days patrolling the waterways, assisting boaters and enforcing the river by-laws. Like many rangers, he has a police background, in his case as a Detective Superintendant with Scotland Yard, and a copper’s instinct that looks beyond the carefree boating to a rather more sinister world of strange happenings and questionable deaths. For Jack, much to the dismay of his long-suffering wife, Audrey, this is just grist to the mill of his investigative skills. And so, amongst marsh and reedbed, old boatyards, dilapidated windpumps and unique wildlife, wrongdoers are pursued, though with many a twist en route, to a solution that will challenge every armchair detective until the very last page.

WATERPROOF – A brutal murder, but the police soon have their man . . . or have they?

STILL WATERS – A girl inherits a boatyard from her grandfather . . . except she’s never heard of either before in her life.

THE WATER FROLIC – A joint endeavour might just reconcile two very different communities, until . . .

WATER UNDER THE BRIDGE – How do you solve a crime that had to be impossible in the first place?

MURKY WATERS – The simple contents of a long-lost handbag lead down a trail that becomes ever murkier.

DEAD IN THE WATER – Could a despised new landowner really be the victim of a time-slip?

Located in the North Norfolk village of Roughton, I offer bespoke Guitar Tuition to players of all ages and abilities, whether you're an absolute beginner, an intermediate player who just lacks direction, or an advanced guitarist looking to improve your technique.

My speciality is Classical Guitar, and to date I have entered well in excess of 200 candidates for Trinity College graded examinations, with a 100% pass rate, from initial to grade 8.  Whilst many players love to work towards their grades, some players simply enjoy playing for the love of the music, and tailored lessons mean that these students can learn whatever style inspires them.

Also available are acoustic and rock guitar lessons, particularly useful for those wanting to play in a band or write their own songs.

Passionate people photographer, based in Norwich  …  enthusiastic portrait photographer … Family portraits especially … Particularly fascinated by trying to capture the exuberance and joy of young children making sense of the world…

Family portrait photography and children’s portraits ….

I have an enhanced DBS check and am on the update service. I have £5 million pounds public liability insurance.

30 years experience as photographer, 5 years as professional. (Previously  - 22 years in primary education, including seven years as the head of Mulbarton Infant School) I have conducted multiple photoshoots in schools and preschools throughout Norfolk, clients this year include Mulbarton Primary, Mulberrybush, Nightingale First, Colman infant and Junior, Caister Infant, Fred Nicholson Special School St Helen's preschool, and Salhouse toddler group.

Children are an amazing photographic subject. They see the world differently, and often express a lot more love and emotion than adults. Being able to capture that is both a fantastic photographic challenge, and a profound learning experience.

I also work closely with dance schools and PE departments, capturing the exuberance of young people in motion. Special fundraisers for PTAs and committees a speciality.
