Ex Soldier and Author. I was just sixteen years old when I joined the Army and stayed for fifteen years - half my life was given to this band of brothers but in truth it was my whole life. British Army on the Rampage is a seies of autobiographical novels that tell it how it was - warts and all. I wasn't in the SAS, I don't think I killed many people and if I did it was an accident. These are just the stories of a hell of a good time with real friends and comrades and the life we llived, the pranks we got up to and the friendships formed. I make no apologies for the fact that these memoirs are humourous because all in all I had one hell of an outrageously good time. And if war is a serious business at least we had a lot of laughs on the way...

TV Star - X Factor has nothing on this!

Wow. The wheels of industry turn a lot quicker than I first thought. The team at have had a busy, busy summer with not only a number of public appearances, book signings, air and military shows, but also a number of army and R.A.F reunions too.

British Army on the Rampage and Surrogate Fathers have been in demand in more far-off countries than I care to mention. What has been surprising though is countries such as Afghanistan, Rhodesia and Mauritius are now included into the Armynovels website top hits parade.

The marketing department has been busy during the early part of the summer securing inclusions into national and local magazines. That in itself would have been enough to excite me as an author, but to be informed that B.F.B.S (British Forces Broadcasting Service) will be carrying out an interview with me at The Royal British Legions Byng House in Southport sent me to another level.

Publicity and marketing for the books will receive another boost as Bay T.V are interviewing me in their new studios in Liverpool on Monday 9th November 2015 which broadcast on Thursday 12th November and will almost certainly bring Liverpool to a standstill! I’ll let you know more details of the broadcast over the next few days but obviously you will need to drop everything and watch if only to see if their make-up department can make me look vaguely human. I just can’t believe I’ll be on telly talking about my books - makes a change from firing big guns or annoying people with Health and Safety checks…!

It only remains for me to say that none of the above would be possible without the backing and support of all the readers and the team at Armynovels who sort out the bag of words I present them with to make it look something like a book.

Thank you all so much.

And now almost everything else is out of the way (except Bonfire Night) now is the time to be starting to think about those Christmas presents and what better gift than a beautiful paperback book (preferably written by myself and available from
