An idiot at the height of his powers.
Reviews for 'A Mermaid in the Bath':
'You are quite mad' - @BettySwollocks
'This is one of my favourite stories on Wattpad! It's original, witty, and it really has a sense of its own style. I love how vividly it portrays Cornwall as well as all its colourful characters! Myfanwy is an absolute dear and adding her notes at the end of each chapter was a stoke of genius. Fantastic work!' - @ghostgem
' Roald Dahl for grownups' - @theattentivesoul
'Most of the time whilst reading 'A Mermaid In the Bath' I was numb but grinning like an idiot' - @ImagineBagginsDragon
'Enchanted already' - @dandydilettante

This book manages to impart some morals which we could benefit from and all this without being preachy. I liked the crisp tone the story is written in. The chorus, the comic relief, the layered characters- well done. The story is paced properly and you deserve a pat on your back followed by a cup of camomile tea.' - @thewhistlingteapot
'You've woven such a charming, quirky and witty story while breathing highly intelligent themes, layers and nuances' - @takatsu

Also she types up my manuscripts and sends them out to you, dear reader.
