Your name in print – be part of the story

I’m delighted that the new edition of my full travel memoir ‘Takoradi to the Stars (via Huddersfield)’ will be published on 23 May. It recounts my life in travel in selected tales of adventure, inspiration, family and fiasco, from Takoradi in Ghana (where I was born), via the middle of nowhere (Huddersfield in northern England) to the ends of the earth.

I’m really proud of it, and I wanted to find a way that you could be part of the story, so I’ve come up with a cunning plan!

First, the book stuff:

Takoradi to the Stars been fully revised and expanded and now includes 35 travel stories set in 20 countries on 5 continents – it has a rather fabulous new cover too!

It’s now available for pre-order from the following online retailers: 


Apple Books


Barnes & Noble (Nook)


The pre-orders are for the ebook version only. The print paperback version will go on sale on Amazon on 23 May, so make a note if you’d like a print copy too.

Why pre-order?

Pre-orders are really useful to authors because any sales before publication all go towards the total sales on publication day – meaning your book is more likely to feature in those coveted ‘Top 100’ and ‘Featured’ lists on Amazon, Apple Books and the like.

So if you’d like to buy a book readers have called ‘heartwarming’ and a ‘fascinating and hilarious collection from a brilliant storyteller’, then please pre-order your copy now from one of the retailers listed above.

It means that you will also be the very first to read the book, which will be sent straight out to you on publication day, 23 May.

And you could also be the first to leave me a review! That’s another great way for books to get attention, and I love hearing what you think about my work – so that’s a win-win!

Be part of the story

I’d love to be able to say thank you personally to all the people that have supported my writing over the years, particularly if you’ve been kind enough to buy one of my books.

So I thought I would thank readers in print, by adding you to the Acknowledgments in the new edition of ‘Takoradi to the Stars (via Huddersfield)’.

If you pre-order a copy of the book before Friday 15 May, and then send me an email, I would be delighted to make you part of the story and put your name in print!

It’s as simple as that, and I look forward to sharing the book with as many of you as possible.

Thank you!
