The Bumpkinton Tales: Volume One

The Bumpkinton Tales: Volume One is a collection of short stories and novella's from the village of Bumpkinton and is the first of my comedy books to be released in paperback. The book is also available on Kindle, Smashwords, Kobo and in Waterstones.

The stories included are Last Christmas, Bittersweet, The Bachelor and Albert's Christmas. The collection also includes the previously unreleased short story, The Family Jewels. At present there are no plans to release this separately as an eBook, but that may change.

Welcome to Bumpkinton!

Come in, have a cup of tea and a scone, and lose yourself in five humorous tales from the village.

Follow Father Whitworth O'Grady as he chokes on a penny, Albert Scatterhorn as he becomes the grubbiest Father Christmas ever, and Amelia Goose as she feuds with... well, anybody. Plus a whole host of characters as they attend the village's first Singles Night with an egotistical ladies' man.

Jump in and find out more for yourself...


The Bumpkinton Tales: Volume One has received praise from its readers with it being described as being written with 'intelligence and subtlety', 'left wanting more' and 'absolutely hilarious'.
