Not content with baring all in her first two books (of many yet to come) Ann Patras accepted the offer to make a complete idiot of herself (her words, not Ant Press’s) by being interviewed for YouTube by Graham Higson. If you would like to catch a glimpse of this crazy lady and put a face and voice to the ramblings in her Africa Series, here she is…
We’re delighted to announce we are working with Vernon Lacey on his lively “Barcelona” series of memoirs!
Congratulations to Beth Haslam who has more than 100 reviews on Amazon UK for Fat Dogs and French Estates, Part 1! It’s just 99p or 99c at the moment, so get in there quickly and grab yourself a copy. And if you’d like to know why Beth hates hose pipes, read this lovely interview from Mrs Blogger’s Blog.
We are thrilled to announce that Nick Albert is the latest author to join Ant Press. Together we will be working on his enchanting forthcoming Irish Tails series of memoirs.
From the Burton Mail, Dec 5th 2016:
Packing a bag and heading half way around the world is a dream for most people but for Ann Patras and her family it became a reality to write about. The 67-year-old was born and raised in Burton, where her life was full of people through her family’s corner shop and her parent’s pub but it was back in 1971 that she decided to make a change.
It seems like an age since we set out on that fateful day for our expedition to buy a property in France. But it wasn’t. Our two fat dogs, Sam and Biff, joined me and my husband, Jack, on a journey that would take us the length and breadth of France. It was also one that would change our lives forever.
