Witty Reflections on Modern Life from a Grumpy Old Westcountry Man

by Ted Sherrell

The Totally Ted! columns are written by well-known Devon author Ted Sherrell. First appearing in newspapers across West Devon and East Cornwall, they give voice to Ted’s many thoughts about modern life.
   Whether Ted is writing about his phobia of technology, his idea for a ‘colander’ list instead of a ‘bucket’ list, the perils of shopping, or his dislike of television reality shows, the one thing guaranteed is that he is always a self-confessed grumpy old cynic. Nevertheless, these contemplations on day-to-day life contain a large dose of humour and a great deal of wisdom.

Ted Sherrell

Born and educated in West Devon, Ted Sherrell has had an interesting and most diverse working career; past work including being a civil servant, newspaper reporter, fireman, factory worker, door-to-door salesman, insurance agent, shopkeeper, proofreader and as a business adviser calling principally on farms in Devon and Cornwall.
    A farmer’s son, he has worked amongst and been around the farming and rural communities of Devonshire for most of his life. He draws greatly upon this background – plus his various working experiences – when writing his novels and short stories.
    In past years he gained an Honours Degree in History through a correspondence course and, as well as his writing career, Ted Sherrell has for many years been involved in local government as a member of Tavistock Town Council and West Devon Borough Council. He is also a Justice of the Peace.
