It’s time to celebrate, for The Fantastical Gregory Shortbread is available from today to dazzle and entertain you!

Today, 10th March is Shortbread Day, or as it’s known in Bumpkinton: Sara Hawthorne Day.

Sara who?

You’ll see.

As you celebrate the arrival of a theatrical genius, the villagers have never heard of him, but they have heard of Sara Hawthorne.

  • How is she important?
  • And what does she mean to Amelia Goose?

And speaking of Amelia…

  • What the flippin’ hell has happened to her voice?

All these questions and more, such as:

  • Who is Gregory Shortbread?
  • Where did he get his red sequin jacket, and
  • What on earth is that hanging on the wall in the Bumpkinton Rectory?

will be answered today.

the fantastical gregory shortbread, the bumpkinton tales, comedy bookIt has been three years in the writing, and I hope you all love revisiting Bumpkinton again. The thing I have loved about expanding the village into a novel is that it gives the characters a chance to breathe.

To me, a novel helps to make characters more three-dimensional. We get into the minds of Father Whitworth O’GradyAmelia Goose, Marjorie Fairfax and Father Harrison Stawker more than ever before.

We see how Amelia sees the world. Is she as bad as she’s been made out to be? Or is the rest of the village the problem?

You’ll also meet the much mentioned but never before seen Farmer Paterson.

Oh, and I’ll answer a secret that Chief Inspector Bertram Elderflower has been hiding in plain sight, but nobody in the village has been remotely aware of.


I hope so.

Pick up your copy today and celebrate with a bit of Parsley!

Parsley? What?

You’ll see…
