Books that are different #1: Move Over James Bond

Vera Murray is a former local government  politician and writers group organiser in a large Indian housing estate.
Murray wrote her first book aged 85 and must be one of the world’s oldest authors to debut an eBook in the shape of Move Over James Bond and Other Stories.
Bent Banana Books has selected Vera’s collection of short stories as one of four eBooks that are different we publish this week.
The first of 33 tales introduce hapless agent Ernest Moneylove who daydreams of being James Bond, as he bungles his way through solving mysteries.
Murray has that rare gift for writing comedy.
She is also a dab hand at pathos shown in the predicament of unwitting drug mule, Belinda, and the surprising story of IRA minnow Patrick.
Murray’s interest in the supernatural is put to comic and sometimes dramatic effect.
Titles promise merriment:  Love is like the Measles, Your mother has to go and Cheeky Charlie meets his match.
Delightful drawings from the  author’s great grandchildren add charm to these wickedly delicious tales.

If you choose to buy the eBook, please write a review at Google eBooks when you have read it.
Murray’s first novel, a supernatural story is out later this year.
