About the Book
Sacramento Satin is a collection of thirty-five original poems by John F Herbert, brilliantly supported by the photographs of Karen D Martin.
The range of topics is varied, from a mischievous Californian prostitute of the book title, to being chased through a graveyard in 'R.I.P', to stopping the clock in 'The Master Of Time', or to suddenly finding yourself in the middle of a raging battlefield at Edgehill in 1642, during the English civil war, in 'King, Crown And Country'.
Erotica is well represented in the poems 'Stilettos', Virgo's Nightmare', and 'Lap-Top Erotica'.
Ghost and Horror is covered by 'R.I.P', a house to avoid in '13 Templeton Drive', and 'The Haunting Of Aurita Lecointe'.
Lived all my life in the London Borough of Greenwich. In my earlier years played tennis and followed Charlton Athletic in football. Worked in accounts all my working life and now enjoy reading (particularly R J Ellory), walking, and generally enjoying retirement.
