Who Is Reginald Bakeley?

I recently had the good fortune to interview Clint Marsh regarding Goblinproofing One's Chicken Coop in preparation for writing a book review for Lake Oconee Living magazine (serving Georgia's Lake Country). As Reginald Bakeley was indisposed at the time of the interview, I asked Mr. Marsh to tell me a bit about the author and protagonist (loosely) of Goblinproofing.

Goblinproofing One's Chicken Coop is a humorous, fresh twist on Old World folklore. It features Reginald Bakeley in the role of adviser as to how to detect and rid oneself of all manner of fey, including dwarfs, pixies, fairies, trolls and goblins. I suggest picking up a copy before your home and property are relegated to mayhem by your garden gnomes (yes, we all know you have gnomes).

Reginald Bakeley according to Clint Marsh:

And one more thing, if I may. Mr. Marsh claims that Bakeley is Welsh and that he's near about unlikeable. I say he's the kind of character we southerners know and love and call our kin. As a matter of fact, based on the following evidence, I suspect Mr. Bakeley is a southerner who has yet to cross the pond. I have faith that he'll find his way.

I received this fun little gardening and yard jewel for my birthday this year (Feb 1, 2015). As a firm believer in fae and fairie, I was a little bit startled to learn of their nefarious roles in the world I live in. I just finished this work and will keep it handy as I pursue activities on my own turf. I find it very interesting I finished this book very close to the day you blogged this interview, almost to the day! Is it that Third Sight or something else?
