“Read this yesterday whilst sitting in the sun. It evoked lots of images of Spain for me and I could feel the sunshine coming through the page.”

Mark Chamberlin

“Stephen brings us heart-warming characters in a beautifully written coming of age tale set on a Pilgrimage in Spain. From the very first page, you feel the heat of the Spanish sun on your face. Candyfloss Guitar is an equally excellent read for a cold January day or a beach holiday!”

Helena Halme

“Read it in one sitting and absolutely loved it.”

“I first met Steve when he was poised to chuck in a City career for a life of far-flung travel. A true adventurer and writer.”

About Stephen

Stephen R. Marriott is a British author whose creative spirit is inspired by travel and walking the roads less travelled. His debut book, CANDYFLOSS GUITAR, has climbed the Amazon Best Sellers list and has been ranked #1 in several categories. Simply click “GET IT NOW” above to get THE SECRET BEHIND THE STORY and an extract of Candyfloss Guitar.

Born in Portishead, Somerset, Stephen soon developed a voracious appetite for reading. Although, it wasn’t until later in life he discovered his vocation for writing. After studying Economics he worked as an investment analyst in London. His investment career was a fascinating period of his life but ultimately it didn’t satisfy his curiosity of the world and one day he found himself walking out of the office. Adventures eventually brought him to the foothills of the Pyrenees, about to walk across Spain on the historical Camino de Santiago. It was on this pilgrimage that Stephen discovered he’d made the best decision of his life, ‘breaking out of the bank’.

Candyfloss Guitar

Will Diego commit to making an honest living, or will he confront his destiny on the road where a million pilgrims have passed before him?

Diego is drifting. He has been content with living his life in a sun-scorched village that lies on the route of the pilgrim path: The Camino de Santiago. But one stormy night, change is forced upon Diego when his father, Eduardo, the local candyfloss maker, unexpectedly catches him entertaining a captivated crowd with flamenco guitar rhythms. At that moment, Eduardo lets go of the ghosts from his past and realises it’s time for Diego to find his life path. Eduardo arranges for Diego to live and work on a farm and sends him on his way with the gift of his old Spanish guitar.

Combining life lessons and adventure, Candyfloss Guitar, challenges us to search inside ourselves and commit to our personal quest.

The story is book one of the Reluctant Pilgrim series and at 60 pages can be read in just under two hours!
