The Butcher

The Butcher - cover revealExciting news. The Butcher, the first book in a planned trilogy, is with my editor!

The tag line for the book is ‘that wasn’t pork’. It tells the story of two brothers from Norfolk, a butcher and a pig farmer, who’ve hit hard times in a post-Brexit United Kingdom that looks very different. Everything is more expensive, and trade embargoes have sent the price of everything – including meat – through the roof. After an unfortunate accident at the pig farm, the brothers come up with a unique way to get ahead of the competition.

Inspired by the original Sweeney Todd story, and films like Delicatessen and K-Shop, the book is a very dark comedy wrapped around a fairly simple concept. That lovely joint of pork you just had, those mouth watering rashers of bacon, those sizzling sausages. What if, just imagine what if…
