UPPER ROOM PUBLISHING SWEDEN ANDERS ENGLUND COMPANY

Our purpose with the pseudonym is to have an united writer couple name for our English publications. We even like it so much that we have used it in Sweden as well. We feel so connected, not only because we are married, but also in language, creativity, spirit and flow. Our writing complement each other and give a depth and variation in our way together to develop our texts and writings.

We are able to turn to each other for advise, testing of ideas, and inspiration. When transmitted through two brains, instead of one, we can see that the idea enhances or deminishes. That way we know when we are on the right path!

 

 

Our first part of "the Gilbertville Series" is on the way to be fully translated into English. We have sent the manuscript to Liz Flight in Cattistock, England, GB. She runs a reading group in her Pub "The Fox and Hounds", wich is also the name of the Pub in our book and one of the most important scenes. She is also our inspiration for one of the characters in our book: Eleanor MacLachlan, who runs the Pub.

And her little dog "Hunter" is inspired by Liz's dog in real life.

For the moment Liz is very busy with two young children, but we will work on with the translation at home here in Sweden.

This poem by Eleanor Farjeon, has been an inspiration for us.

THE CHIMES OF CATTISTOCK

(On hearing how people came from far and wide into Dorset, and gathered in the open for half a mile about the tower of Cattistock, to hear the playing of the famous Cattistock Carillon by Joseph Denyn of Malines)

INTO the Vale of Dorset flock the people;

Old men and young, maids, wives and children flock

For half a mile all round about the steeple,

To listen to the Chimes of Cattistock.

O happy Bells,

Your music peals and swells

Through the clear air

In the green valley there!

How many listen

To your bright music, risen

On farm and meadow,

On homes in sun and shadow,

On widwood bowers,

And blooming garden-flowers!

O brave Bells swinging!

O waves of happy ringing!

In the green western valley sing your flock

To joy again, sweet Chimes of Cattistock!

 

Oh that the world itself might be the valley

Where all the peoples of the earth should flock,

By every ocean way and grassy alley,

To listen to the Chimes of Cattistock!

O Bells, sweet Bells,

You would ring golden spells

Through earth and heaven

From dawn to day to even,

While myriads listened

And loosed their love imprisoned,

The love of brothers,

Till each had caught the other's

Light in his bosom-

And, like a single blossom

Together clinging,

Men heard you ringing, singing,

And round them felt the world's green valley rock

With joy, to the sweet Chimes of Cattistock!
