Ian Hutton


Dear Readers,
I have been a professional writer for 40 years.
Two of my books have become Collectibles;
selling for twenty times their original prices.
I converted them to ebooks to make them affordable.

I guarantee to you,
that my stories will make a grouchy person smile.
They are gifts.

20% goes to my local Food Bank.

Thank you for reading my stories.
