Queenie's Teapot - Book cover

Now optioned for a movie!!

A post-Brexit, post-Trump glance at an alternative method of government...

In a world where democracy has been abandoned in the wake of Trump and Brexit, a cohort of randomly selected British Republic citizens receive their call to serve in parliament. As the strangers gather to learn their tasks for the next three years, the Cabinet Support Team try to fit jobs to skills—but Queenie Mason can’t do nuffin’, she’s only ever worked the supermarket checkouts.

Naturally she becomes head of state and mayhem follows. Together the new government muddles through, tackling unrest on the streets and a spot of global bioterrorism in addition to their own journeys of self-discovery.

Author's Note: 

Queenie's Teapot has been optioned for a movie by Passage Pictures of Los Angeles.


About The Author

Carolyn has been a psychologist, a paramedic, a proof reader, a patisseur and several other things, not all of them beginning with P. A trucker, for example. She began writing the day she decided to try and see the world...doing both just to find out if she could. When excerpts from her first travelogue were published by the Rough Guides she decided to keep on doing both. It made a change from teaching CPR to nightclub bouncers and designing wedding cakes.
Carolyn maintains that she is either multi-faceted or easily bored, depending on who is enquiring.
