Meet The Author

"As a successful author of books with interesting and amusing heroines, Gail turns her eagle eye to expose her own life as an author, with this blog style diary of events of her life in the heart of Leicestershire Writing as Jennie Orbell, Gail writes Contemporary Fiction. Her likes and loves include positive people, cats with attitude, sponge cakes that rise, snails that stay in other gardens and country music. She is respectful of all creatures – and human beings who have earned it. An extreme Scorpio who never forgets a kindness (or a hurt) She dislikes self-important/pessimistic/ illogical people, broken promises and all forms of cruelty to animals She shares her life with her partner, Richard  (whom for some strange reason appears to accept all of the above!) two chickens and a tabby cat called Chea. Favourite Life Quotes. *  What doesn’t destroy you makes you stronger. *  It is better to say nothing and appear stupid than to speak and remove all doubt."

Originally written to amuse her fans, friends and family, her story is one that can be enjoyed by anyone who has ever wondered what it is really like to be an author. This is a frank exposure of the everyday life of an English writer – so includes battles with manic cats, coping with very nosy chickens and struggling to keep sane enough to type the odd word in her latest manuscript.

    Fancy a good laugh?

    Truth is stranger than fiction or so it seems in this amusing and sometimes wacky tale of the author’s day to day life, featuring chucks, a cat and a laid-back partner. Gail has a knack of turning the ordinary into the extraordinary and this book makes for a fascinating and entertaining read.
    If you enjoy a good chuckle, then this is definitely the one for you.

    Different look at life.

    Always funny and interesting to read Gail’s take on life. Not too sure who is in charge, Chea or the chucks but certainly not Richard. A good lighthearted read.

  3. Mrs Sandra Austin

    This author would make a wonderful and funny ~T.V series

    This Lady is just so funny, I love her stories, blogs, and books, an amazing writer. Her stories would make a wonderful comedy series for the television 🙂

    Different look at life.2

    I have to apologise to the author as I didn’t see the stars at the top of the review and it only came up as 3, I have now changed this on here to five as I really think it deserves that, sorry Ms Orbell.

    Light-hearted take on being an author

    If you ever wondered what authors do when they aren’t writing, this is definitely the book to read 🙂

    A must for Television

    Two Chucks is the long awaited blog book from this well loved author. It offers selected entries from Jennie Orbell’s highly popular WordPress blog. The tales provide an insight into the often crazy life of this very funny lady, her two pet chickens and beloved cat Chea.
    The author has a true gift for capturing everyday events and transforming them into episodes of mad and extremely funny occurrences. The book catalogues Ms Orbell’s adventures, or more often than not misadventures both domestic and agricultural set deep in the heart of rural Leicestershire. Often her long suffering partner Richard appears, and is frequently on the receiving end of the lady’s ire for some misdemeanour or other with hilarious results.
    All in all this is an excellent read and a superb companion by the pool, or on a long journey. However your neighbours may find your occasional outbursts of laughter a bit of an irritation. The only criticism is that we now have to wait for part two.
