Pattington is the author of over 80 crime novels featuring the character "Gruntford of the Yard". The former police officer turned novelist believed that all great works of literature could be improved with "a car chase and a good punch up". Sadly, he died before he'd completed his reworking of Virginia Woolf's "To The Lighthouse".
Thrupenny, the least contentious of the 8 Snark sisters, is best know for her series of novels about an upper-class family strangely similar to her own. She spent the majority of her time living at the family home in the countryside but owned a townhouse in Bloomsbury where she kept her pens.
