Why is this forum South Shields to Switzerland if it refers to where the books are set? Jean of Storms is set in North Shields/Tynemouth. EBD lived in South Shields so does it refer to that?

I suspect it's alliteration. :wink:

EBD was from South Shields, that's the reason.

I never even noticed the alliteration! :roll:

I figured it must be because she lived there but she never visited Switzerland (did she?) so that confused me. I'm easily confused :wink:

I'll have to look out for that, North Shields and Tynemouth are only a few miles down the road from me.

It would be interesting to see if there are any references to places I recognise.
