George Morton has lost everything. His wife, Aimee, was killed by a drunk driver, then, six months later he is accused of cyber theft. Deciding there is nothing left for him in England, George buys an old farmhouse in a small village in Spain, much to the dismay of his three children, Alex, Bonnie and Christopher. There he meets the attractive Maria, and her not so agreeable papa, Vincente. George settles down to a new way of life, but not forgetting his lovely Aimee and the wonderful years they had together. Someone else however is not forgetting him. Oliver Barnes, Chief Executive of Barnes & Barnes International Bankers, whom George worked for. Oliver is convinced George has the banks money and is determined to retrieve it, no matter how. As life goes on for George he becomes closer to Maria, and she too wants to start a new chapter in her life, either with or without her father's consent. Good food and World Music are paramount in George's life, and he sets about rediscovering these senses once more, and enjoying adventures along the way, which all culminate on Columbus Day, 12th October.

I started writing my first novel, Columbus Day, ten years ago, with the insane idea of supplementing my pension. I now know that was a pipe-dream, but I have learnt a lot along the way on this rocky road called publishing. Nothing Is Sacrosanct is my third novel, which takes on a much darker and dangerous theme than my first two romantic stories. I live with my wife Carol, in Surrey, England, and we have two wonderful daughters, and two gorgeous granddaughters. My interests include, photography, cooking, fishing, travelling and of course world music. Music was a key factor in Columbus Day, and I have tried to put over a point of view that there are many forms of music to enjoy - not just 'mainstream pop' and 'commercially produced' music. I included as much research as possible, visiting the WOMAD festival in Caceres, Spain. Check-out my website www.davidbalaam-books.co.uk for all the latest info on by books, and snippets of each novel. There may well be a sequel to Nothing Is Sacrosanct, but that will be after I have finished my current project, a children’s book based around one of my other favourite hobbies - fishing.
