Publisher's Summary

Brenda longs for a quiet life; a life where she’s free to run her B&B and enjoy cups of tea and the occasional night at the bingo with her friend Effie. Unfortunately for Brenda trouble tends to seek her out.

The whole palaver begins with poison pen letters that start flying around the quiet lanes of Whitby. Then there’s Jessie the Zombie Womanzee, an amorous and strangely un-aged professor of Icelandic history, and terrifying encounters with bamboo wickerwork gods from the dawn of time. Lord only knows where it will all end…

Bride of Frankenstein vs zombie bamboo.

Another Hammer style epic for Brenda and Effie, with a star spotlight on the shady and slinky Sheila Manchu, voiced with brilliance by Joanna Tope. Pure enjoyment.

Simply wonderful, duckie!

The further incredible adventures of Whitby’s favourite two guardians - Brenda and Effie. Monster adventures with a touch of proper northern humour and plenty of time for a fish supper.

These stories have got me through these lockdowns and kept me thoroughly entertained!!
