Following Football

Following Football is the story of a journey across the planet, 27,000 miles and four continents, on my way to Brazil 2014.

It looks at football around the world, taking in fascinating facts and looking at the funny, occasionally ridiculous side, on the road with the beautiful game.

It is available from Amazon now, on Kindle and in paperback.

Three Little Boys book cover

Three Little Boys

When the fate of a child is affected before it has even flopped its way into the world by a finger football tournament the father had twenty years earlier, some questions should be asked of that father's suitability.

A novel about men and pregnancy, men and their mates, men and their music. About aborted trips to the fish shop and abominable trips to India. This is the story of why some little boys are never allowed to look after the school hamster.

On a beach in India, one of the central characters, Will (34), experiences one more in a long line of awkward romantic encounters, as he talks to a cute German girl he has recently met.

Three Little Boys is available on Amazon on kindle.

Two Cold Rabbits

Two Cold Rabbits

My short story for children, Two Cold Rabbits, was published on the site Their feet are cold, but there hearts are warm.

Please note that the site edited for punctuation etc.

Some children gave me five stars for it, which I am very grateful for. Usually they just call me "poo-face".

Read Two Cold Rabbits here.
