    Thank you for posting this. I have been a “fan” of E V Thompson for 25 years – ever since being given The Restless Sea after having my appendix out! This is a really informative interview and would have loved to have heard it live. I thoroughly enjoy his books – my favourite is Ruddlemoor because it is the one where Josh dies and he was part of all of the Retallick series to that point – a real tear-jerker. E V Thompson kindly signed my copy of Ruddlemoor several years ago. Thank you again!

    I live on the west coast of Canada, yet I thoroughly enjoy each of the E.V. Thompson books. When they are published, I don't bother to look at what they are about, I just order them. I find his style of writing to be very detailed and compelling. His characters are people I would like to know and the themes of his books, based, I believe on actual events as closely as possible, are realistic and enjoyably informative.
    In my opinion, Mr. Thompson in one of the finest and most important writers alive today.

    The only question I have for Mr. Thompson is when is your publisher going to commit your books to the ebook format? I am buying a Kindle soon and would like to repurchase all the many E.V. Thompson books to the ereader format.

    The first E V Thompson book I read was Chase the Wind, I've since bought another twenty and can't part with them. Like Ruth I would love to have heard the interview. My favourite author. Thank you.

    I have read 19 over the last 12 years, some twice! Helped me through some sleepless nights. Keep writing please. Recently bought 8 of the Retallick series. Just make sure the publishers keep the print a decent size as so many modern printings are too small to read comfortably. Many thanks.

    Thank you for over 20yrs of reading enjoyment. I've now got my husband hooked on your books and he has manged to get 2 on his Kindle ; I prefer a real book! We have many book sales near us and I always look for titles that I haven't yet read. Thank you for many hours of “happy escape “!

    I have read every book since Chase the Wind was first published in Reader's Digest. It is still an essential part of Christmas for me to get the new EV Thompson book. Dream Traders and Becky are my favorite.

    My favourite author. I just loved the way EV's characters came to life. I could truly lose myself in his writings.They were tangible,I could smell the gorse on the moors, the stench of poverty, the fish & sea, infact anywhere he wrote about. The history was so well researched that not only did I love his every book I learned so much. I had the honour of conversing with him for a few hours at an FSID fundraising event where we sat side by side whilst he signed books & I sold raffle tickets. I learned of his death whilst visiting Mevagissey on Friday. Sadly missed but never fogotten. RIP.
