The Pondlife Stories

The Pondlife Stories


Welcome to the fascinating world of small creatures living in and around a garden pond as they enjoy their far from ordinary daily lives.

The stories will introduce you to charming animal and insect characters who will entertain you with their experiences. They each encounter their own challenges as they become involved in exciting adventures. All of them contemplate something of life’s big mysteries from a remarkably human perspective. There is something to learn here about biology and the environment and perhaps one of these little things may carry a message for you.

About the Author

This is John Gaulton’s second novel and is a change of style from his first book, ‘For Indoor and Outdoor Use Only’, which he wrote under the pen name John Beverley; a humorous and irreverent romantic tale based upon a trip around South America. John is semi-retired and lives in Portugal where he enjoys the climate, the relaxed lifestyle and the friendly local people. He spends time gardening, socialising, barbecuing and eating out. He enjoys art and photography and plans further writing when time permits.
