- Author's latest novel - set in Haworth - is up for award
By Alistair Shand https://www.keighleynews.co.uk/news/20670753.authors-latest-novel---set-haworth---award/ AN author's latest novel – which is set around Haworth – is amongst the contenders in this year's Best Indie Book Awards. Paul Rushworth-Brown's Red Winter Journey is based against the backdrop of the English Civil War in 1642. It follows the fortunes of 16-year-old Tommy Rushworth and his battle for survival after being kidnapped into the Parliamentary Army to fight. Paul's other work includes the widely acclaimed Skulduggery, which was also set locally. He turned his hand to writing in 2015, after embarking on a six-month project to produce a family history for his children. The resultant 400-page book traced his family back to Haworth. "I believe it is easy for readers to empathise with my characters in Red Winter Journey," says Paul. "Some people have said they couldn’t wait to find out if Tommy makes it home or not."

He spent time in a foster home in Manchester before emigrating to Canada with his mother in 1972.

He became a writer in 2015 when he embarked on a six-month project to produce a written family history for his children, Rachael, Christopher and Hayley. This four hundred page book traced his family's ancestry back to Haworth, Yorkshire where his ancestors had been living as copyholders or peasant farmers since 1590. His Great Grandfather James Rushworth Ist was a carpenter and the first to move away from the dales in the mid 1800s with his wife and nine children. Through this research, he developed a passion for writing and Skulduggery, Red Winter Jouney and the soon to be released Dream of Courage is a continuation on from this. "The history of these people is rarely thought of and even less rarely written about because there are few records as most would have been illiterate. There is much written about the lords and ladies but what about the common people." Paul Rushworth-Brown - January 2019 Skulduggery - The bleak Pennine moors of Yorkshire; a beautiful, harsh place, close to the sky, rugged and rough, no boundaries except the horizon, which in places, went on forever. Green pastures and wayward hills, the colours of ochre, brown and pink in the Spring. Green squares divided the land on one side of the lane, and on the other; sheep with thick wool and dark snouts dotted the hills and dales. The story, set on the Moors of West Yorkshire, follows wee Thomas and his family shortly after losing his father to consumption. Times were tough in 1603 and there were shenanigans and skulduggery committed by locals and outsiders alike. Queen Bess has died, and King James sits on the throne of England and Scotland. Thomas Rushworth is now the man of the house being the older of two boys. He is set to wed Agnes in an arranged marriage, but a true love story develops between them.A glorious read of a period well versed and presented with accuracy and authentic telling by an author who is as much engrossed in his prose as the reader he shares with...masterful and thoroughly enjoyable...5 stars."
