My comedy novel, For the Love of Dog, is now available on Amazon in both book and e-book format.
Three months ago, Anna Marks had a home, a country, a husband and a future. Now, all she has is two suitcases, a laptop computer and a beagle called Frankly.
Together they are on their way from Denver, Colorado to Spain, to live for seven months in a tiny village in the mountains of Granada.
And this is 1999—before wireless internet and ever-present mobile phones—so it will be a complete and lonely exile on foreign soil, made solely because of Anna’s love for her constant companion of ten furry years.
To go directly home to England is not an option right now for it would mean months of hell in confinement for a very spoilt little bitch. And the dog wouldn’t like it, either.
Laugh and cry with Anna and Frankly as they discover a tapestry of conspiracy, tragedy, passion, friendship and laughter in the ‘least important village in Spain.’
For the Love of Dog is a ripple of laughter and hope that kicks ass, shatters beliefs and rebuilds hearts. Read Chapter One here.
I am an independent Catholic Priest, Sunday Morning Faith presenter on BBC Radio Devon, author of more than a dozen books on Bible mysticism and metaphysics—and a stand-up comedian.
Last year I was a finalist in the 2016 Bath New Comedy Award and, above, you can see me in the 2015 UK Funny Women Awards. I was runner-up in the South West Stand Up for Cider competition and I gig regularly throughout the UK and abroad.
Comedy and ministry go together surprisingly well—the true job of a priest is to connect people with their own inner joy and love of life… not make folk feel sinful or disconnected from the Divine.
Laughter is certainly the best medicine for that.
