He was Head of four prep schools over a period of fourteen years and has now retired to live in Spain. Recently the family house was threatened with the possibility of losing some land to a proposed new development – which led him to write a second book about the Valencian Land Law. Keith plays golf and cricket and is an artist - he runs Twiga Art, a website for artists - www.twigaart.com.
When Tom Thorne moves with his family to the Costa Blanca to take up the post of Principal of an International school he is immediately caught up in a battle with a local constructor and mayor over a development under the infamous Valencian ‘Land Law’ which threatens to ‘grab’ land from the school and several neighbours.
When bachelor Tom Thorne is appointed as Headmaster of a West London Prep School he has to contend with pushy parents and eccentric and rebellious teachers. Add in School Inspectors, Governors and dubious rugby referees and Tom soon realises that he will really have to be on his toes to survive. Close encounters with single mum Anita in the school darkroom – and elsewhere – develop.
