About the Book
When Poppy relocated from London to Margate she answered a card in the window of the Madam Popoff Vintage Emporium announcing, “Part time help required only special people need apply.” She suddenly found herself drawn into a world of wonder, magic and healing. The enigmatic, curious Madam Popoff taught her that there’s a silver thread connecting people, places, events and time. As time ticked on Poppy often asked herself, “Exactly who is Madam Popfoff? Is she simply a portly old shopkeeper with a wizened face? Gypsy? Fairy Godmother? Angel? Time Traveller? Gate Keeper?”

Poppy and Madam eventually expand the business and open another vintage emporium in neighbouring Ramsgate and eventually a Broadstairs shop too. These books are about lovely Isle of Thanet seaside towns but they could be any where in the world. Each book explores places of historical interest along with Poppy’s growing spiritual insight and development as a healer.

A series of short stories in each novel explore the ups and downs of life and the nature of healing, from sorrow and joy to hardship and loss. There are people who leave behind a legacy of kindness, sacrifice and courage and others who suffer from the repercussions that overindulgence and selfishness bring.

"Broadstairs on my Mind" explores the establishment of a new vintage emporium on Broadstairs High Street. The things that cross Poppy's threshold all have a story to tell. From the awful trenches of World War 1 to the Olympic games of 2024 and the Carlton Hotel. From lighthouses, wreckers and smuggling along the Broadstairs coast to donkeys and Punch and Judy on the local holiday beaches.From the seaside convalescent homes to the tourist hotels each story helps Poppy to learn the important part that emotions play in true health and healing.
