Today, I am delighted to feature a guest post from Paul Matthews author of We Have Lost The Chihuahuas.
About the Book
London, 2046. The British Republic has a new First Lady. She’s Californian, ‘in-your-face, for sure’ and she’s got big plans for a Buckingham Palace refurb. When her three Chihuahuas go missing, one man is determined to avoid getting dragged into it all. His name is Pond. Howie Pond – presidential spokesperson, retired secret agent and cat lover.
Meanwhile, Howie’s wife Britt is handed her first assignment as a National Security and Intelligence Service rookie – to solve the mystery of the missing canine trio.
Will Howie manage to slope off to the pub before he can be roped into help? Will Britt unmask the dognapper and grab the glory? Find out, in the latest, crazy comedy-thriller from dog-loving British author Paul Mathews.
1. What is the most important item you require for a quiet night in?
Jack Daniels and Cola Zero – a match made in alcohol heaven.
2.Is it best to always tell the truth or is it sometimes better to tell a little white lie?
As my main character Howie asks in my latest book, where would the employees of the world be if they told the truth all the time? Unemployed – that’s what!
3. What’s your signature dish?
Anything that someone else is cooking.
4. Do you prefer Twitter or Facebook, why?
Twitter is better for news and intelligent comment. Facebook is more for those times you need to watch a cute animal video or you want to convince the world you’re having a full and varied life by taking selfies of yourself in strange places.
5. Which book character do you wish you had written?
Sue Townsend’s Adrian Mole was my hero in my teens, so I’ll pick him.
About the Author
Paul Mathews is a quite funny British guy who’s managed to escape his day job and is currently on the run as a comedy novelist. His sharp, satirical – often surreal – sense of humour draws on 20 years as a British Government press officer, during which time he encountered politicians, senior civil servants, HR managers, and lots of other people who really sucked at their jobs.
His popular ‘We Have Lost’ comedy-thriller series set in 2040s London, starring beleaguered presidential spokesman and wannabe secret agent Howie Pond, currently comprises four titles with more on the way. Paul has read all the books at least ten times and highly recommends them.
