Paul Mathews started publishing novels in the summer of 2016 and, so far, he’s written nine of the funniest books you’ll ever read by someone called Paul Mathews. Here’s a quick summary of his three different series with links to more info on individual titles:
Royally Funny series
The first book in this new comedy series – An Accidental Royal Kidnap – stars recently-dumped London schoolteacher George Nearly, who wakes up one Sunday morning to find a princess sprawled on his rug. Comedy chaos inevitably results in this highly original tale that features a wide range of humorous British characters and wry observations on life, the universe and everything. It’s written entirely from George’s own quirky point of view and has already received rave reviews on Amazon and Goodreads. A summer 2021 sequel is planned that continues where An Accidental Royal Kidnap left off. After that, who knows? If Mr Mathews receives a knighthood, there could be a third title.
We Have Lost series
This is a five-book comedy-thriller series set in a British Republic in 2040s London, starring presidential spokesman and wannabe secret agent Howie Pond and his newshound girlfriend Britt Pointer. The Britain of the future isn’t as high-tech as you’d think, as there’s no internet or mobile phones. And there are no royals because they were banished to Florida after the 2029 revolution. Each story deals with something different being lost, with Howie and Britt involved in parallel comic adventures and chapters alternating between their different viewpoints.

Clinton Trump Detective Genius series
This is a trilogy of comedy murder-mystery spoofs starring self-proclaimed detective genius Clinton Trump and a host of other English eccentrics who inhabit the deadly English village of Upper Goosing – European Murder Destination of the Year 2015. In true murder-mystery style, you’ll witness the action from a variety of viewpoints, although guessing the murderer is less important than just enjoying some good old-fashioned English farce. The first title is a Very Funny Murder Mystery, its sequel is The Blood Moon Of Doom and the final book in the trilogy is the fabulously titled To Kill A Shocking Bard. Please read with a large pinch of salt at hand and plenty of tissues to wipe those tears of laughter from your eyes.
