The story behind the book

Book Talk reviews


News and events










Welcome to my website which I hope you find enjoyable and interesting.


If you are on this page at all I assume it will be because you have read “Love Letters from a Desert Rat: Alex and Nan” (published by The History Press in the UK on 15th September 2008 and in the US on 1st March 2009). If you haven’t yet read the book, you can order it from by clicking here).


We should all celebrate our histories.


NEW TALK FOR WINTER 2016 ONWARDS – “Nan’s story: with my one good eye” – now available for booking. Details here.


NEW FROM MARCH 2017 – “Writing your memoirs workshop” – now available for booking. Details here.


NEW FROM SEPTEMBER 2018 – “Franklin’s Legs: The Story of Eleanor Roosevelt” – now available for booking. Details here.



The whole experience of bringing Alex and Nan’s story to others has been wonderful for myself and all my family.


Perhaps you would like to know more about the background to the story and how the book came to be published. You should visit The Story Behind the Book. For details of News and Events click the tab at the top of the page.


I recently had the pleasure of speaking at the East Kilbride Probus group. The group wrote a short review of the talk, which I’m delighted to share with you here.


Or you are thinking – I could do as well or better!! So I am interested to hear about your family stories and to encourage others. Click here to send me an e-mail.
