Becoming Felicity: John & Andy, Book 4

· Nick Duberley

About this ebook

Hannah is a world-weary 17-year-old. Growing up in social care means Hannah knows all the answers, and hates them.


When John Mason visits Cambridge, Hannah decides she can use him. But attracting John’s attention is risky. The plusses are he is rich, and has a huge social media following. The minuses, though concealed, are very real.


Living by his own rules, John isn’t put off by Hannah’s tough-girl exterior. Inside her is a vulnerable teenager who longs to belong somewhere; he can use that. John’s built-in advisor, a secret alien brain-mate called Andy, has no moral scruples whatsoever.


Hannah was one Don’t-Care girl’s past. Felicity may be her future, if she can find a place in John’s outrageous life. Much darker than Harry Potter, more realistic than 50 Shades of Grey, Becoming Felicity is a story which challenges your imagination.


Set in the summer of 2012, this story contains strong language and descriptions of sex. If you think you may be offended by either of these, I strongly suggest you read something else instead.

About the author

Bibliophile, writer, gardener, bridge player and generally nice person.

For as far back as I can remember, I have loved books. Mostly I have bought and read old books. Not that I have any objection to new books per se. In part, it’s because I am lazy and time has done the work of winnowing the chaff of the uninteresting or untrue from the best grain. As an example of this, Shakespeare’s writing has stood the test of time for various good reasons.

Also, second-hand books are generally cheaper than new ones. I was brought up to be careful with money, and that habit stuck.

Currently 68, I have been lucky enough to have lived in the same small cottage in the Wye Valley for over 40 years.

I had no plan to write for publication, but with time on my hands due to Covid in the Spring of 2020 I started writing about John, a 10-year-boy, who has an alien AI arrive to share his brain. The John & Andy series is the story of John’s life and adventures, aided by his alien brain-mate, who he calls Andy.
