Wickedly Entertaining Mysteries from New Local Author VJ Barrington
Book Launch: Saturday, 23rd February 2019 at Whitehead, Co Antrim
VJ Barrington, author of the Bailey Jacobs Mysteries, will launch his first book at The Bank House, Whitehead, this coming Saturday 23rd February, between 11am and 2pm.
Barrington took up writing after moving to Whitehead in 2011. Unable to find a support network to develop his novel, he setup a writer’s critique group in Belfast and another in Whitehead. The Whitehead group met at The Bank House, where Barrington returns to sign copies of his very first paperback.
It’s Veronica Mars with a pinch of Jessica Jones and a dollop of Agatha Raisin.– VJ Barrington
Bailey Jacobs is a seventeen-year-old amateur sleuth whose no-nonsense, bullheaded approach often lands her in more trouble than the trouble she’s investigating. Set in the rolling hills of Surrey, England, these semi-cosy mysteries deliver a lively blend of crime and humour that entertain to the very last twist.
Aside from the fact he was once a resident of the Farnham suburbs where the Bailey Jacobs adventures take place, Barrington has nothing in common with the unconventional heroine.
I don’t know where Bailey came from. I wanted someone who could blunder in and out of trouble with ease. I wanted someone who could make you laugh and cry on the same page. And I wanted someone who could make you feel safe in the knowledge that no matter how many times they stumbled, they would eventually make it home safely. – VJ Barrington
This first paperback includes episodes one to four from the first series. Scheduled for twelve episodes, Barrington is currently writing episode five — Bailey Jacobs and Tomorrow’s News — which is due for release in Autumn 2019.
