  • (1888PressRelease) October 07, 2011 - Ellen Ghyll is the pseudonym of Cumbrian market traders Sue and Nigel Liversidge. Their first novel, 'Chicken Feed,' a darkly humorous story set in the world of market stalls and car boot sales, has just been released on Amazon Kindle and is already attracting five-star reviews from the UK and the USA.

    So, what is it all about? Briefly: despotic market owner Sheena McKinley rules her market and car boot sale with an iron fist. When, as a cost-cutting exercise, she allows the inmates of the local open prison to pick up litter, there are rumblings of discontent amongst the regular traders, particularly the car-booters. One by one, the prisoners start to go missing; Reg, the market manager, thinks he's been abducted by aliens; Matt, the butcher, starts selling chicken feed and the Burger Man's indiscretions come back to haunt him. In the background, something dark and sinister is going on - something that will, one day soon, come home to roost!

    Car-booters turned market traders, Nigel and Sue (aka Ellen Ghyll) draw their inspiration from their own experiences of a world in which alarm clocks are set to go off at 4a.m. and the working day lasts as long as there are customers to sell to. When they are not writing, they sell Frothy Coffee on Silloth Sunday Market.
