Pattington & Snark

Hadderley Pattington

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 Snark

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.

The majority of these Monster London portraits are still available to buy (£150 each plus P&P). If interested please email me for details.

surely Thrupenny Snark is actually Lauren Laverne in an alternate universe?

Hey, thank you for doing my sketch today at Foyles! It was very gracious of you, and I wanted it to be known. They were all swell. My nephew will certainly enjoy his uncle portrayed as a sunglasses sporting monster.

(I'm also not so keen with social media, so instead of writing on twitter or facebook, which would be the logical thing to do, I'm expressing my gratitude here. Thanks agin.)
