The Café with Five Faces

What the Walls Heard, 2018

by

The key clicks in the lock, and the door swings open into my world...

Welcome to my cafe. My five-roomed empire. Each room named after a place I hold close to my heart. 

One café, five rooms, five groups of people, all with their own stories to share and opinions to express. This is England, a country living through a period of rapid change and intense political conflict, in other words, now. People of all ages, races and backgrounds gather within these walls to share their thoughts on everything from travel to humour, romance to politics, art to human interest. 

The Cafe with Five Faces is an eclectic mix of stories on the trials and tribulations of every day life. Grab a coffee, take a wander through the cafe’s rooms and learn about the lives and loves of those within. 

The Cafe with Five Faces (what the walls heard , 2018) is due out on 20th March 2019 .....

 Chaelli

A traveller, an observer and a coffee fanatic, Chaelli has, to use a turn of phrase, been around a bit!

He has travelled the world in his capacity as a trainer, working primarily in Europe, but also in South Africa, Central and South America, Australia and New Zealand, the Middle East and Central and South-East Asia. During this time, he has developed a particular affection for, and affinity with Beirut, Budapest, Cape Town and Granada, along with the much closer to home Hebden Bridge. Having spent many months in all of these places, he has named a room in his cafe after each of them, hence The Cafe with Five Faces.

His 'day job' involves a lot of observation and he has used these 'skills', also known as 'nosiness', to put together The Cafe with Five Faces, a book of the stories his cafe's walls have overheard, and will continue to overhear.

Delving back into the annals of history, Chaelli studied History and Politics and maintains an active interest in the latter, being a vocal member of most things anti-Brexit, a mistake he views as a form of national suicide.

These days, he is studying for a Diploma in Coffee Skills and has so far taken courses in Beirut, London, Cape Town, Bogota and Villa de Leyva (Colombia).

He has been a writer for a long time, starting with children's adventure stories written when barely a teen, through to materials and courses for English teachers and an as yet unpublished travelogue.
