James Aden has his hands full when he leaves the comparative sanity of a job on an estate in Scotland when his wife inherits a farm in Suffolk. To supplement the income from the farm, he takes a job as an agent on Sir Charles Buckley's vast estate. The list of problems, and problematic characters, that he has to deal with is virtually endless with rogue chimney pots, unsavoury tenants and delinquent sheep giving him frought days and sleepless nights. There's no point in counting sheep to get to sleep when they simply won't do as they're told. Then there's the farm secretary, Gail, whose turbulent love life provides James with even more headaches than the troublesome sheep, without even the prospect of a decent Sunday roast to look forward to once the troublemakers have been put out of their misery!
After studying estate management at the Royal Agricultural College, Rory Clark went on to work as a land agent at Badminton in Gloucestershire and Althorp in Northamptonshire. Inspiration for his books comes from the wide variety of eccentrics he has worked with and been employed by while working for the landed gentry. Clark now works for the Forestry Commission and lives in the Derbyshire Peak district
