samphire coastal

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…”

Robert's latest book, The Cedar Cage, is to be published by Pegasus in spring 2017.

It’s 2008, and a gripping psychological mystery unfolds in North Norfolk. Bertie, the new owner of a unique Edwardian boathouse, becomes convinced that the carpenter who built it was murdered: his investigations immerse him in the brilliant life of Lord James, the enigmatic aristocrat who commissioned the boathouse as a retreat – or maybe a ‘cage’ – for his glamorous American bride. The Cedar Cage is rooted in love-triangles both past and present, laden with intrigue, passion, blackmail and murder as history repeats itself uncannily. Yet its readers – like its characters – must make up their own minds: is Bertie’s strange, unquenchable imagination running riot … or has something genuinely supernatural been at work?
