Victoria Twead is a New York Times bestselling author.
In 2004 Victoria nagged poor, long-suffering Joe into leaving Britain and relocating to a tiny, remote mountain village in Andalucía where they became reluctant chicken farmers and owned the most dangerous cockerel in Spain. Village life inspired Victoria's first book, Chickens, Mules and Two Old Fools, which was quickly followed by more, all of which fast became Amazon bestsellers.
Victoria and Joe continue to enjoy life keeping chickens, writing, helping authors publish their books, sampling the local wine and living alongside their colourful neighbours.
All three books in the Old Fools series have reached the Amazon Top 50 Bestseller list.

I don't ever write reviews but... Victoria Tweed's Trilogies of Two Old Fools are too wonderful and funny not to let everyone in on! I prefer biographies so when I was searching the Kindle store I found the first in the series. Chickens, Mules and Two Old Fools. I could not put it down. Chickens is about Victoria and her Husband Joe and their very daring move from England to a tiny village in the moutains of Spain. You will find yourself laughing out loud and yearning to be right there with them! If you want hours of enjoyable reading buy this books. You will not be disappointed.

Two Old Fools on a Camel
By Amazon Customer
Up until now "Chickens" was my favorite of Victoria Tweeds books but "Two Old Fools on a Camel" with its insite into a terrible time in world history surpasses it. It is riviting. She and her Joe live their normal day to day lives in the middle of the chaos of a war and teaching of school in a culture different from Spain or England. They did finally meet some of the King's camels and Victoria always with a heart for a beast painted a loving picture of them. The children,Fatima's overbearing mother, the insane teacher no one could stand, their own desire to be back at home in Spain all contribute to a wonderful story.Two Old Fools on a Camel ~ From Spain to Bahrain and back again
