– About the Book:

Imagine setting up a new life, in a warm climate, where everything is cheaper. Sounds like heaven doesn’t it? But is it…?

Here’s a fact. No matter where you are in the world, there will always be something wrong, if you look hard enough.

Andy Frazier moved to France 5 years ago, exchanging his rat-race life in corporate business, for one in a big old farmhouse in a rural little village, along with his partner, a selection of interesting animals and some power-tools. By day, he earns a modest living as a writer. Generally, he is happy.

But often he complains. Sometimes he even rants. Because the whole world is crammed full of annoying things.

This hilarious book is a look at the world around him over a two year period, as Andy has a pop at everything from the red wine and red politics to the price of sandwiches.

– About the author:

Andy Frazier is an author of children’s stories. Occasionally he writes things for grown ups too but he finds this quite hard as he has never quite grown up himself. He has always wanted to write ever since he was a child and now he can’t think of anything he would rather do. He gets his most enjoyment out of creating colourful characters and then bringing them to life in humorous situations.

Born into a life of farming, it took a long time and a lot of determination to get away from it, but he thinks he has just about achieved that now. Andy did quite a few things during his career, including agricultural contracting, retail sales, sheep breeding and IT before he somehow became a business analyst working in a city. Oh yes, and at one time he was an expert in grooming cows. It all made sense at the time.

One day, he had a eureka moment and upped sticks to South West France. He now lives there on a smallholding where he shares his time equally between his partner, some more sheep, some DIY tools and a set of golf clubs. Despite all the obvious distractions that renovating a big old farmhouse presents, Andy spends most of his mornings writing and that is the bit he enjoys most.
