Postcards from the Early Years

2 Comments 12 July 2013

Michelle has very generously offered me this guest blog. In deference to her, and to you, her loyal readership, I’ve toned things down a bit. It’s not the in style you’ll normally find over on my blog, which you can find over at http://nobodysreadingme.wordpress.com/. That’s a bit of a swashbuckler, all manner of swaggery nonsense. […]

An interesting twist in this romance

2 Comments 29 November 2012

I love all kinds of book genres. My bookshelves reflect that as well–classics and lit prize winners across to chick lit and murder mysteries. I have a soft spot for really good fantasy fiction. I love enjoy historical fiction. And I even have a few erotica novels on the shelves (but not the Gray one, […]

What’s it really like being a celebrity bodyguard?

7 Comments 01 June 2012

Forget Hollywood–well, I mean the fiction (where does one draw that line?), I mean forget the movie, The Bodyguard, I’m talking real life. It can’t be all glamorous parties right? It’s not about being a beefy gym-going guy who looks good in a suit, is it? What does it take to be a celebrity bodyguard? […]

15 Comments 05 November 2011

I have had the exciting opportunity to interview a driver of one of those London Black Cabs—a real live cabbie. I’ve been in many black cabs and I’ve had conversations with a lot of cabbies, but I’ve never had the opportunity to just ask away all the things I could think of, even those slightly […]

When I emailed Catherine Zeta Jones’ bodyguard

11 Comments 29 September 2011
