ooh_kindleOver Our Heads

James’ first book.

Over Our Heads explains the very big and the very small in a way people without a PhD in astrophysics or quantum physics can understand.

James Sinclair takes us on a journey from the atom, through to the DNA from which we are formed to the stars from which we came.

So, if you’ve ever looked at the stars and had trouble thinking that they are just like our Sun, then this book is for you.”

A great and very easy read which is much needed in these days where people don’t look up.

It’s a book for all ages too.

A 13 year old said about it, “Over our Heads is a very good book that is easy to understand, It gives a comprehensive insight to the galaxy yet doesn’t confuse the reader. It is very useful for beginners in astronomy. I didn’t now how interested I was in the galaxy until I read James Sinclair’s book, and after I read it, it left me thirsting for more.”

And here’s what an 89 year old said, “Astronomy is an ancient science with a huge bibliography. Most of this literature consists of books recording specific observations, data and speculation. The virtue of James Sinclair’s “Over Our Heads” is that it describes and explains astral phenomena in simple terms and in analogies to our everyday experience. Facts become real, 3-dimensional and easily understood.”

Childless widow Deirdre is living a quiet and uncomplicated life. That is, until she makes the fateful decision to take in lodgers. Flighty Sharon and her young son Kevin, soon turn her careful order into chaos.

This is a story about a quintessentially British little-old-lady, and a neglected boy. Deirdre is a woman who avoids confrontation and conflict at all costs. Kevin is a boy whom trouble finds all too easily. Thrust together by circumstances, they both have to adjust and find a way forward.

James’ third book…

India—that exotic land of jewels, silks, perfumes, and spices, drew many a young adventurer to that distant and alluring land.


Under British Rule, Hindus and Muslims live peaceably together. The mixed-race community—the Eurasians or Anglo-Indians—also enjoy the privileges and protection offered to them by the British—who represent an awning of shelter: A Shamiana.


In the Shade of the Shamiana, is a tale of life in 1940s British India, where class and race distinctions and discriminations abound. But times are changing, and young Jamie Donaldson finds his world turned upside-down when his school, Fernhill, closes down without warning. His mixed-race mother, Lydia, is discontented in her marriage and misses the big city, and ends up making decisions that will forever change her son’s life. Howard, the patriarch of the family, has secrets that could tear the family apart. Tensions rise as the possibility of a ‘Free India’ sparks riots and violence. Winds of change are in the air, and Jamie’s world becomes something unfamiliar, unknown, and full of challenge and turmoil.
