Cat on a Hot Tiled Roof by Anna Nicholas

Book Description

Having moved with her family to rural Mallorca to escape the stresses of London life, PR consultant Anna Nicholas continues to commute back to her glitzy Mayfair agency to earn a crust. Meanwhile she is harbouring a bizarre dream to open a luxury cattery on the island - unbeknownst to her long suffering Scottish husband, Alan, and son, Oliver. Life in the mountains is never uneventful as the author gets to grips with phantom sheep, midnight snail hunts, Catalan lessons, ghosts, floods and flighty hens. London also has its challenges, as she juggles eccentric, rich and often neurotic clients between Mayfair and Manhattan and is hotly pursued by lucrative deals. But increasingly Anna finds herself craving the simple life of her Spanish idyll because as she discovers, you can take the girl out of Mallorca, but you can't take Mallorca out of the girl. Wickedly irreverent, laugh out loud funny and lovingly observed, Cat on a Hot Tiled Roof celebrates the wonders of Mallorcan rural life.

Chorus of Cockerels by Anna Nicholas Chorus of Cockerels, Paperback (June 2016)

When Anna's PR agency in London is merged, she finds herself with more time to explore the culture and history of the island that she calls home (along with her 40 hens and cockerels, cats, frogs, donkeys and Johnny the Toad). With a colourful cast of characters, A Chorus of Cockerels reveals that there's never a dull moment in Mallorca.

Bull on the Beach by Anna Nicholas Bull on the Beach, Paperback (July 2012)

Anna Nicholas and her husband want to be as self-sufficient as possible in their Mallorcan mountain idyll. But an old PR client persuades Anna to create a media storm for a new Spanish leather store. The story of how a giant bull ends up on a Barcelona beach is enough to send her back to Mallorca, where life seems delightfully normal by comparison.

Strictly Off the Record by Anna Nicholas Strictly Off the Record, Hardback (September 2010)

An achingly funny and irreverent memoir, the author recounts her adventures judging records around the world with the "The Guinness Book of Records" founder, Norris McWhirter, CBE. Nicknamed Batman and Robin, they travelled the UK and beyond together meeting eccentric, weird and wonderful record breakers.

Donkeys on My Doorstep by Anna Nicholas Donkeys on My Doorstep, Paperback (May 2010)

The dream is near completion. Anna is loosening the reins on her London PR company to spend more time in Mallorca with her family, cattery, chickens and goats, and insists their menagerie will only be complete with two donkeys. Full of humorous and loveable characters, this is a charming take on the simple and rewarding life of rural Mallorca.
