Roy Jenner



Roy Jenner - I was born in London years ago and have travelled the world. I served in Egypt with Her Majesty’s Armed forces and spent interesting years there. My wife and I settled in New Zealand in 1963 and are still settled. New Zealand is a good place to be. I worked every facet of the meat industry until 1984 when I moved into real estate sales and enjoyed glorious years with a top real estate company in New Zealand. My success with them is well documented. Mary and I have 4 sons – 8 grandsons and 3 granddaughters and now 5 great grandchildren. I love music and fulfilled a dream a few years back when I travelled to Memphis and Nashville Tennessee. It was worth the wait. I love to write and have written 14 novels, (sagas and crime thrillers) which are for sale as E BOOKS at competitive prices for the world to read. All being mostly crime thrillers set in both New Zealand and England – entwining the heart and encompassing Devon and Kent and the Home Counties and interesting reading I am informed. Many people have enjoyed the same. All hard work to write making it easier to read. You won't be disappointed. Thank you. Enjoy.

  • For the Love of Daisy on Aug. 25, 2011

    Take the time to read a good book. Noisy wheels have not allowed me much time for reading these days, but Dalmation Daisy tramped her big paws across my screen and I had to read a chapter, or two, or three and more. As dog lover I no longer have a dog. This work by CAS PEACE makes me wish I did. Those people blessed to share their life with a four-legged friend will understand the full joy of dog loving and dog owning, (really they own you,) but it is seldom considered when overcome with the joy of the moment with a new puppy that they will outlive that sweet creature, but most times that happens. For the Love of Daisy covers the full cycle of the partnership, the shifting emotions, the sunshine and the shadows and identifies strongly with the emotions stored inside dog lovers. CAS PEACE does it so well. Her writing flows in the smooth style of her other novels that have made her the success she is. Read a good book. Read For the Love of Daisy and be glad. RJ New Zealand
