Life with the redhead
So, there I am reading quietly when the redhead enters the room, "Where would I find a shoulder bag with a strap long enough to cross my body and leave my hands free?" she asked. Without taking my eyes from my book I replied "The shop at the top of the street darling." I could hear the cranial cogs whirring before I was asked "Which shop at the top of the street?" Pausing for dramatic effect I eventually replied "The Newsagent." Silence filled the room for a while before being broken by "Why on earth would a newsagent have a shoulder bag with a long strap?" I smirked and said "So they can deliver the papers." Then I realised she was blocking the door, ooops!
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.
