tonytodayLocal swallow Tony Thorne MBE, who lives with his Viennese wife, in Playa Arena, has just completed the third volume of his tall speculative tales, set in, around and even under this magical island.

The first volume TENERIFE TALL TALES, won the top “Best Read on the Beach” award in this category in the 2009 New York Beach Book Festival Contest, and as a result, several of the linked tales selected from all three volumes are now being developed into a screenplay in Hollywood, with a producer/screenwriter and one of the producers of LORD OF THE RINGS. It will be a character-driven adventure movie set partly in Wales, but mostly in Tenerife.

Copies of the the first book at €9.95 can now be obtained from Amazon, WH Smith etc., but locally from Tony direct, and signed if required. He can be contacted via his website … www.tonythorne.com or by telephone, when he is home on … 922 860063
