The world's number one instrumental group had a worldwide hit in 1960 with "Walk-Don't Run." They hit high again with "Hawaii Five-0," continuing on a fifty-year career of... More > recording and touring towards America's Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Written in collaboration with band members and associates over a 9 year period, the heavily illustrated book contains data for over 50 of the band's sixties recording sessions. Once I got started, I couldn't put it down. There are so many twists and turns through the decades while fads and fortunes propel the group from success to success, rising and falling with the trends of music and fate. This story provides ample proof of what happens to the roller coaster at the bottom. It rises up again! There are many hidden stories within that tell of the times and people and make one aware of just how significant The Ventures are for all these years on their way to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

The BBC TV series “True Love” was the catalyst for this tale, portraying various romantic encounters, all set by the Margate seaside. True love has many forms. A passion for cricket can... More > also be a manifestation of love. Yet it is impossible to discuss cricket, with its broad themes, without reflecting on life itself. I have set my story broadly in 1965, when a girl lost her life. At the time, her death meant little to us but such are the vagaries of writing, that the more I researched the subject, the greater I became drawn in. Any discussion on the circumstances surrounding her murder led inevitably to the inclusion of another theme, which I have encountered in life, violence towards women. I still return to Margate regularly and regard it with deep affection. It was in danger of becoming a wasteland. There are those now, some famous, some often unsung, trying to fashion a resurgence. Another form of true love. May their guardian angels help them succeed.< Less
