If you want to create your own memory of your visit to Norfolk you can take part in one of Linda's painting workshops, offered all year round either at her studio, abroad or your own venue.

Having worked as a full time artist and tutor for over 15 years, Linda has studied Teaching Through Creative Practice & Process at the University of East Anglia.  Inspired by everything around her, she prefers the freedom of painting from life, en plein air, in the countryside of Norfolk, France and Morocco. As it evolves her work it is looser in style and brighter in colour  her philosophy is "Where ever you look there is something to paint".

Linda, writes for Leisure Painter Magazine, had work selected for exhibition at the Designer & Artists Copyright Society in London, has tutored for Artist & Illustrator Magazine, as well as her own workshops. Linda is an associate tutor at Flatford Mill and Epping Forest for the Field Studies Council and for Shades of France.

Thank you for visiting my page. I am an author from Wymondham in Norfolk and I write under the pseudonym of Madeline Dando. This was the name of my late mum and I am extremely proud to write under her name.

My real name is Martin Wanger and I originate from the East End of London. I have been married to my lovely wife Brenda since 1972 and we have two grown up children. I am so proud to live in beautiful Norfolk; we’ve lived here since 1994 and we simply adore the county. We love socialising, travelling and listening to all types of music together. I also have a huge love for steam railways and is there a better place than Norfolk to experience them at their best? I’m a sport fanatic too loving football, cricket and golf. I’m a supporter of Tottenham Hotspur, but please don’t hold that against me!

For many years I have had a burning desire to create inspirational stories that readers can lose themselves in. I have self-published two books to date; the first called “Amber Sands”, a true love story with bags of courage, resilience and triumph over adversity. I want the book to warm your heart, break your heart and to inspire each and every reader.

Reviews on Amber Sands

"What a wonderful read, It was such a heartffelt story. The characters came alive, the book was an easy book to read and once I started reading I could not put it down. I don't often cry but Amser was such a lovely character and became so real. Can't wait for the next book by this author"

 "I have just finished reading Amber Sands. It is a really heart warming story with lots of real life issues covered. It is a story of first love and how sometimes however hard you try the feelings for that first love never go away. Its a story of how we cannot change the post but we can change the future. The story is very well written and I found hard to put down. I am looking forward to the sequel" 

"An unwanted child looks beyond her own grief and loneliness to give others what she craved for but never received – the gift of love and understanding.
The heroine of Amber Sands reminds me of someone I know; and I think a lot of readers would end up relating to her. Amser is a large-hearted, kind and wonderful woman. Even when things are not going well for her she is busy bringing sunshine into the lives of those around her. A single parent, she has instilled the same values in her own daughter. The plot is simple and moves at a pace that makes it easier to fall into step with Amser and her life. I am looking forward to reading more books by this author"

Leaving Her Tears Behind

My most recent novel is called “Leaving Her Tears Behind”. A story of love, desire, greed, hate and revenge, that I think will keep you on the edge of your seat right till the very end.

When you read my books I hope you will gain a sense of everything that I love around me, including the wonderful county of Norfolk and the incredible people that live here.

Two thirds of  "Leaving her Tears Behind" is set in North Norfolk in a fictitious place called Cleybourne. Of coiurse I had Weybourne in mind and there are reference to Sheringham, Sheringham Park, Aylsham, Holt, Holkham Beach, Swaffham and the North Norfolk Railway (which is a particular love of mine as well as Sheringham Golf course) .

Reviews on Leaving Her Tears Behind.

"Leaving her tears behind is a must book to read. The characters in the book became very real. Some were more likeable than others. The ending was not as expected so if you are reading this book don’t skip any pages and read to the very end. I recommend this book easy read". 

"An exciting tale of two women, totally opposite in personality, told against the background of war torn London and the contrasting idyllic life in a county manor in Norfolk. The book is filled with realistic characters and situations, but with some surprises to keep one's interest until the very end. I look forward to reading more from this author". 

"I absolutely loved this book, from the very first page it draws you into the story and the feeling of almost being there. Based around the East End of London it's the area where I was born and grew up and being able to relate to the places and understand the culture of the East End post-war and up the the 1960s it felt as though the story could have related to anyone I knew, including myself. It really is a lovely and engrossing read and I read the whole book within 3 days. I can highly recommend this book as it takes you away from the pressures of the modern day back to a time when things seemed far more simple and straightforward, albeit hard work but a simpler way of life nonetheless. I really look forward to more books from this author".

Chris Crowther spent 42 years of his working life flying aeroplanes and helicopters in various parts of the world, mainly West Africa as Chief Pilot of a helicopter operation, and where his first books were written. After hanging up his flying helmet, he skippered passenger boats on the Norfolk Broads where he now lives with his wife Sue, rowing and sailing while plotting his next “Jack Fellows” adventure.

THE “JACK FELLOWS” SERIES OF MURDER AND MYSTERY

Dastardly deeds are not something you automatically associate with Norfolk, but local author Chris Crowther has gone even further and used the tranquil magic of Broadland as the setting for his series of whodunits.

The sleuth in these stories is Jack Fellows, a navigation ranger with the Broads Authority, who spends his days patrolling the waterways, assisting boaters and enforcing the river by-laws. Like many rangers, he has a police background, in his case as a Detective Superintendant with Scotland Yard, and a copper’s instinct that looks beyond the carefree boating to a rather more sinister world of strange happenings and questionable deaths. For Jack, much to the dismay of his long-suffering wife, Audrey, this is just grist to the mill of his investigative skills. And so, amongst marsh and reedbed, old boatyards, dilapidated windpumps and unique wildlife, wrongdoers are pursued, though with many a twist en route, to a solution that will challenge every armchair detective until the very last page.

WATERPROOF – A brutal murder, but the police soon have their man . . . or have they?

STILL WATERS – A girl inherits a boatyard from her grandfather . . . except she’s never heard of either before in her life.

THE WATER FROLIC – A joint endeavour might just reconcile two very different communities, until . . .

WATER UNDER THE BRIDGE – How do you solve a crime that had to be impossible in the first place?

MURKY WATERS – The simple contents of a long-lost handbag lead down a trail that becomes ever murkier.

DEAD IN THE WATER – Could a despised new landowner really be the victim of a time-slip?
