Although my writing genre is mostly supernatural, comedy also rates among my favourite reading and listening material. It helps vary the diet.
I think I've downloaded just about every one of the Jeeves and Wooster comedy audiobooks available, and thoroughly enjoy the wonderful characters featured in them. Written by P.G Wodehouse, they usually centre on romantic entanglements which parody the British upper class gentry of the 1920s-30s era, roping hapless Bertie Wooster into sticky predicaments, as he attempts to unite young couples on the path of true love and happiness, despite countless obstacles.
His generally hopeless attempts to succeed in these missions, are continually rescued by his highly intelligent butler, Jeeves, who also guides Bertie, a confirmed bachelor, from perilously becoming married to women determined to prevent him enjoying his free-spirited lifestyle, and settling down to respectable living.
Throw in an assortment of ferocious aunts, save for his favourite aunt Dahlia, eccentric lords intent on beating him to a pulp, strong willed women, always bending him to undertake tasks that make him quake with fear, and you have the recipe for a wonderfully entertaining escape from reality. And, of course, not forgetting the inimitable Jeeves, always at hand to save the day.
I live in Aylesbury UK with my wife, Jenny, and a tabby cat called Lightning. I've loved writing from a very early age and went on to work in journalism for 30 years. Have also produced audio dramas for hospital radio, and spent several years in theatre and independent film acting. Jenny and I have a son and daughter and two wonderful grandchildren.
