Robert Greenfield is a former international fashion designer, once dubbed ‘Britain’s answer to the Italian Look’, and a well-respected interior designer with a staggering flair for home-makeovers that has earned him many successful projects often featured in magazines and the press.
Robert’s debut book Samphire Coast (published by Pegasus Elliot Mackenzie Ltd/Vanguard Imprint – out 2011) is a beautifully descriptive and daringly candid account of his over-the-counter view of owning and running a much-publicized boutique B&B establishment on the uber-hip North Norfolk Coast: aka Chelsea-on-Sea.
Robert and his partner, Michael (former top London hairdresser to the stars) risk-all for a no-going-back escape from North London bohemia - embarking on a new life in a rural backwater: a ‘Boy’s Own’ odyssey that dramatically changes their lives beyond their wildest dreams… “Sometimes a little naivety can go a long long way…”
Look out for Robert’s forthcoming novel The Cedar Cage, a gripping psychological thriller also set in North Norfolk. Bertie, the current owner of an unique coastal boathouse, becomes convinced the carpenter who built it was murdered, and his investigations reveal the brilliant but unsettling life of the Edwardian aristocrat who commissioned it as a retreat or perhaps ‘cage’ for his American wife. With love triangles both past and present, much intrigue, passion, blackmail and murder, its readers – like its characters – must make their own minds up. Is Bertie’s strange, unquenchable imagination running riot or has something genuinely supernatural been at work?
The Cedar Cage's release date for 2016 is yet to be announced.
