The Drummer Boy is my latest novel about the ghost of a Gordon Highlander Drummer Boy from the Battle of Waterloo who haunts a modern day army nurse.
Chapters take place in modern day Aberdeen, at the Noose & Monkey bar and restaurant as well as His Majesty’s Theatre and Garthdee. Other scenes take place at Tidworth and during the Napoleonic War.

Mini Chocolate Eclair Recipe Instructions:
Preheat the oven to 200C. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper then set aside.
Place 225mls of water, butter and salt in a medium saucepan and bring to the boil. Add the flour and stir with a wooden spoon for 3 minutes, or until a sticky dough forms. Transfer it to the bowl of a mixer fitted with a paddle attachment and beat for 2 minutes to release some of the steam.
Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing and scraping down the sides of the bowl after each is added.
Scoop into a piping bag fitted with a small round tip of about a quarter inch wide. Pipe one and a half inch strips onto one of the prepared sheets making sure to leave about 1 inch between them.
Bake for about 15 to 20 minutes or until the eclairs have puffed and turned golden brown.
Set aside to cool.
Scoop pastry cream into a clean piping bag fitted with a tiny round tip. Insert the tip into the bottom or side of each eclair and squeeze in pastry cream to fill.
Dip the tops, shaking off the excess, and place onto the second prepared sheet to let set which usually takes about one hour - an easy eclair recipe.
