More About the Author

Pete Barrett has written quite literally millions of words, although it is true, some were spelt incorrectly. Many of these words were joined together to form sentences, paragraphs and eventually books and plays. It is true that an infinite number of monkeys typing on an infinite number of typewriters for an infinite amount of time would have come up with 'Out Loud: 36 Twisted Tales.' But in the process they would also have produced an infinite amount of monkey droppings and the complete works of Jeffrey Archer. And nobody wants the job of clearing them up.

Pete's children's books Tich Dragon Slayer and Tich Vampire Hunter are now available on Amazon and in bookshops. Tich is a kid whose life is a mess - he's too small to get into the football team, he's useless at school and his gang and his parents are rubbish. But then his father gives him a game which allows him to step through any picture into the world beyond. Then things really start to go wrong. These titles along with Tich Outlaw, Tich Argonaut and Tich Saves the World from the Jellies will be available on Kindle soon.

Pete's Detective Dan books are also now available on Kindle. In this series Detective Dan and Bozo the Dog solve a series of mysteries - flying fish knocking people over, diamond rings disappearing, burning scarecrows - ably hindered by Constable Sloth, the world's most useless policeman.

The short stories in Out Loud: 36 Twisted Tales were originally commissioned by the Interact Reading Service which sends professional actors into hospitals to read to groups of stroke patients. Pete was at first skeptical about this commission on the grounds that, with one actor reading one short story to one stroke patient, it would have taken him 4393 years to become famous. A prediction that proved uncannily accurate until Amazon Kindle came along.

Now Out Loud: 36 Twisted Tales is available to a much wider audience, although slim people may enjoy it too. If you like funny stories with a twist, this book is for you. If you don't, buy it anyway, it's time you had a change and stopped being such a stick in the mud.

Pete Barrett is also a playwright with professional productions of plays such as The Dying of the Light, The Complete Corruption of Carrington, Revenge of the Mutant Cockle, Guilty, Who's Afraid of Joanna Trollope and Day-Dreaming on the Motorway. These plays can be enjoyed, well read anyway, on his website www.petebarrett.co.uk.

Readers will find hours of amusement on Pete's website www.petebarrett.co.uk where you'll find an email address should you wish to send him Viagra offers, details of his bank account or release large sums of money from Nigerian bank accounts.

Tich Vampire Hunter
Tich the Vampire Hunter by Pete Barrett takes us back, if we are old enough, to the days of "The Beano" and the Bash Street kids. Unashamedly lower middle class, Tich is no William Brown bound by the dinner gong neither would he and his mates be seen with Harry Potter. Tich and the gang live in a dystopian landscape of shopping malls, disused warehouses, shopping trolley filled canals and churchyards. His philosophy is life is, it's predictable, so find an adventure to keep yourself amused. Here, churchwardens are disposed to hiding behind gravestones ready to pounce on small boys; definitely, pre nineteen-sixties, then.
The school, St Greavsy's, in the view of Mr Grimmel the head, has a platonic set up the good, hard working pupils who frequent the library; the bad, bullies, thieves and frequent abusers of the school toilets and the ugly, shaven haired sub-humans who thankfully we are left ignorant about. Nick names like "Barky Loser", "Barf" and "Pig-boy" can only leave you hoping that somehow, against the odds these individuals will grow up to be useful individuals in a global world.
Tich's parents are separated- a must have these days, if only to show how kids can take advantage of adult absence and have adventures without anyone noticing. His dad is a scholarly recluse who supplies "Ideal's Imaginator", a time travelling device together with books for any subject. His mother, in contrast is a TV. Soap addict with a penchant for Asda mini Garlic Kievs. Could those two have ever been compatible? Girls are marginally catered for in this world; in the gang is the fearless Maggs, who occupies a privileged place due to her invincibility in combat. The only other girl of note is the seductress, Abigail Mountford, a blue eyed blonde who has Tich in her thrall.

Format: Paperback
The cover presents this story as "wonderfully weird and wacky" and certainly that is a very good summary. The writing style, vocabulary and presentation suits it's target readership very well and the story is one of those extraordinary fantasies that children embark upon inside their heads and so will appeal. The idea of pushing wooden stakes through the hearts of vampires sounds gruesome but Barrett has done it in a way that is not at all. And the final twist? There is also plenty of comic moments to entertain - something that seems to keep all readers reading, regardless of age.

Well, it's just so well done as to make the reader stop and smile and enjoy the book that little bit more.

It was feppin brilliant -Nathaniel age 7
We came across this book by accident. It started by me reading it to my son at bedtime as there are some quite long words in it, it ended up him reading it on his own (asking what the long words meant). The book captured his imagination form the start. Nathaniel loved the characters and how they interact with each other. He is a big fan of the Beano and found a lot of similarities with Beano characters. Even though the story was about vampires it wasn't too scary but was gruesome enough to hold his attention. The story flowed quickly and was fun to read. I particularly liked the dry grown up humour. We will definitely be reading the other two Tich books.
