Author Ashley Jarrold examines the controversial subject of life after death in a fascinating new fictional book.

Mr Jarrold, of Bakers Way, Perry, who took up writing two years ago, explores the possibility of whether the dead can communicate with the living through his main character Graham Peters in his book, Life After Death.

The 73-year-old, who owned a frozen food business, and loves to play golf, is already working on his next book.

“I was a war baby from a poor background, which meant my education was rather basic,” he said, “but I have learnt a lot through the school of life.

“I wish I had taken up writing earlier as I really enjoy it.”

Ashley’s wife Kitty is a great source or inspiration and has encouraged him to continue with his new-found passion.

“Kitty has been a great help with my writing and has furnished me with some good ideas. I am really proud of this book as it just shows what you can do if you put your mind to it, and I have started writing the new one which is called The Injustice of Justice.”

Mr Jarrold, who has two children and four grandchildren, enjoys reading Agatha Christie, Ruth Rendell and the Harry Potter books.

In Life After Death, Detective Inspector Martin Penn pulls a young man out of a grave in the early hours of the morning, it seems to be an open-and-shut case, but what Graham Peters was asking him to believe as the reason for his actions was totally illogical - or was it? Is there life after death?
