Cuthbert and the other characters from the valley are an amalgamation of people I have met or observed throughout life. Cuthbert is the self concious, never cause a ripple type of guy whereas Ronald is the 'Been everywhere, killed everyone but can't prove it because it's a secret' kind of guy. Percy? well Percy is the annoying little twerp who always has the last word and if he hasn't achieved it you can bet that one of his ancestors has. This is the valley where people forget to leave and eccentricities become normal and normal is viewed with real suspicion.
I am an ex-miner who has written the CUTHBERT SERIES of comedy books. I am hoping to provide my readers with escapism from the stresses and strains of everyday life and involve them in a timeless fictional Valley with larger than life characters which are developed throughout the books. Each book has its own theme and they can be read as part of the series or as stand-alone books.
