St Albans broadcaster pens Dunkirk book
- Credit: Archant
A St Albans broadcaster has completed work on his second novel, which he says drew inspiration from the city’s rich history.
Stephen Davis says I Spy the Wolf, due to be published this month, was penned mostly in the city, with a research trip to France.
The novel is a fictionalised account of why Hitler decided not to attack British forces as they fled to Dunkirk.
He said: “Living in St Albans I feel immersed in 2,500 years of a rich history going back to the Iron Age.
“If I need inspiration for my writing I only have to walk in Victoria Park.

“If I need more inspiration I need only look from Victoria Park towards the Abbey.
