About the Book (Excerpts & Info)

Ah, the British dream-to have your own detached residence. The only problem is, not everyone can afford a sky high priced one-especially the residents in Cashin's Castles. So for the price of a posh casket, these washouts are holing up in tacky caravans, but manage to keep their heads above water most of the time - a feat in itself considering all the sludge they have to crawl through from their homes overflowing, outdated septic tanks! If they're lucky and the wind is blowing in the right direction, they occasionally get a whiff of fresh air-but there's a price for everything-and that includes the money hoarding maggot they now pay to rent the plots their homes rest on. An American, Patrick Edward Nathaniel Cashin Jr. inherits the caravan park when his British born father meets with an untimely death. If one's initials could encompass a person's net worth, then Cashin would be head to toe in money, although in his case, it would be the most diminutive amount of British currency-PENCE! Well almost-there's a vowel missing at the end! Not to worry, there's plenty up front to make up for the shortcoming-and it's putrid! The residents include an array of 'playing cards'-a parody of the 'Queen,' a pair of Kings (Mr. and Mrs., but not for long--because there's only one throne in that over-rated crap heap), a Jack (a clown), a little ace named Half-gal (a midget), and an assortment of other numbers-most of them odd! Cashin-bent on making money any way he can-starts by quadrupling the tenants' lot rent, but like the pitchfork that got his old man in the end, things often backfire and do the same thing to Jr.!

Deftly constructed at 618 pages, Cashin's Castles: A British Comedy with an American twist is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the Humor category. With U.S. wholesale distribution through Ingram and Baker & Taylor, and pervasive online availability through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and elsewhere, Cashin's Castles meets consumer demand through both retail and library markets with a suggested retail price of $20.95 and $30.95, respectively.

About the Author

Patricia Gavin received her Bachelor of Science degree from Emerson College in 1980. Majoring in Communications, and minoring in English, she especially flourished in creative writing courses. Her lifelong love of comedy-especially British comedy -inspired her to write Cashin's Castles. The only thing Patricia loves better than laughing is money and she proved it in 1979 when she was a contestant on the TV game show, "Make Me Laugh." She rolled off the stage $360 richer. For every second Pat didn't smirk she earned a buck, and because she remained completely stone faced the entire three minutes, she received double the payoff in the end. Time is money-and the same holds true for the main character in Cashin's Castles. Possessing a dark sense of humor, Patricia enjoys making a mockery of death. Unfortunately, it came back to haunt her in 2002 when her own husband was killed in a tragic accident. She stopped laughing-for awhile-and would give all the money in the world to have him back; however, since this is not possible, she is dedicating Cashin's Castles in his memory because without his encouragement, there would be no foundation for these palaces.
