David Prosser born 1951 worked for many years as a Local Government Officer before taking early retirement due to health problems. Finding it difficult to talk to people as a result of the illness he found himself in the situation of being housebound most of the time.
In an effort to prove to himself he still had a value he started The Buthidars which is an all denomination, all colour,all creed group determined to better the world by Hugging.
The next step was to remind the world of Edwardian style and beg the designers to recreate it in exchange for clothing that displays too much of next weeks washing. Let’s dress with some dignity !
Often heard are the words, life begins at 40. David is trying to show that life can get a kick-start at 60 too. He chose this age to sit and write his first novel, My Barchester Diary, a fictional look at the life of the gentry.
David’s greatest ambition?
To make people laugh out loud at the absurdities of life!
He can safely say his books have helped him achieve that ambition.
My Barsetshire Diary (The Barsetshire Diaries)
A fictitious look at Lord David’s day as a member of the Gentry living in a samll village.
Come and meet the villagers like Mellors the gardener with a past and Grizelda the housekeeper.
Join us at the village fete where Edna is determined to win the jam making competition at any price. See how the formidable Lady J intends to knock Lord David into shape.
Is the famous stiff upper lip his only protection? Is anyone really this naive?
The answer is a resounding YES !
The Queen ‘s Envoy
A prequel telling of the days between gaining his title and now, when he performed the duties of an unofficial envoy to Her Majesty.
There are times when confronted by women when he’s not sure if his stiff upper lip is enough to help him get by!
After inheriting his Title, Lord David little realised he would also inherit a job.
After all, he’d just retired. But this job was as an unofficial envoy to HMG and could he turn it down?
He’s a fish out of water groping his way from situation to situation with a hint of desperation but with all the aplomb and stiff upper lip he can muster.
Will he cope with all that life throws at him and all the women that seem intent on compromising him?
