Read full description of the books:Carol and Bev have no idea about what they want to do for a living. They see an advert for Playboy croupiers, and, with a typical lack of forethought, decide to apply. After parading in bikinis and completing gruelling maths tests, (with a certain amount of cheating), they get the job.
They do four weeks training at Victor Lownes' mansion in Tring, where there is free-flowing champagne and a well-stocked juke box. They are commandeered to be photographed with Victor on his return from hospital, and are invited to attend one of his weekend parties, where they meet Peter Cook and Kenny Lynch (Bev has him confused with Kenny Everett!).
They encounter unscrupulous landlords and exact a savage revenge. They deal blackjack to all kinds of punters, fend off lecherous pit bosses and almost fall in love. They get into all kinds of trouble and come out unscathed.
Bunny on a Bike gives the reader an amusing insight into life inside the casino and being young in 80s London.
Along the way, Bev and Carol make us laugh with their very different attitudes to life. One thing is sure - they will be friends forever.
Bunny on a Bike is a memoir. It is anecdotal, unfolding chronologically, and told in the first person. Its tone is ironic, and its protagonists offer us an uplifting and humorous account of the process of becoming a Playboy croupier.
If you like frivolity and fun, if you like a dry kind of humour, if you like to laugh, you will love Bunny on a Bike.

Read information about the authorBev Spicer has been writing full-time for six years, from her crumbly Charentaise house in France. In a past life she gained a degree in English and French Literature (Keele University) and a PGCE in English methods (Queens' College, Cambridge).
She has lived in Bridgnorth, Cambridge, Rethymnon (Crete), Mahe (Seychelles), and now lives in Charente Maritime with her husband and youngest son. The next place she wants to explore is probably Spain. Her husband is very tolerant, and secretly enjoys chaos.
Bev has been a teacher, blackjack dealer for Playboy, examiner for Cambridge ESOL, secretary (various sorts - most boringly 'legal'), lecturer at Anglia Ruskin University, and a Sunday checkout girl for Tesco (who allowed her to deliver surplus bakery products to the homeless – ‘every little helps’).
She loves people, reading, writing, speaking French, astronomy (quantum theory addict), gardening, travelling, and hates housework, cooking, drizzle and honey.
Bev publishes her lighter books under the name of Bev Spicer and her more literary works as B. A. Spicer.
