"Gone:Catastrophe in Paradise" is a finalist in the 2017 #RBRT Book Awards. Cast your vote today!



Hello all,

Yesterday I was delighted to be informed that my book "Gone: Catastrophe in Paradise" has been nominated as a finalist in the 2017 #RBRT Book Awards in the non-fiction category. 

Voting is open until December 15, 2017. Winners will be announced on December 19. You can learn more about the awards and cast your vote for your favourite book on the #RBRT page here

Hopefully if you are voting, you have read the book - if not, you can find out why it might be worth your time (about two hours! It's a short book) by checking out the reviews on the amazon page here.

I wasn't sure what to expect when I released my first book. I thought maybe a few friends and family might buy it...out of pity! LOL. But it has been successful beyond my imagining and continues to be a top seller in aviation books on amazon. So to all of you who purchased, read and left reviews, thank you so much, it means a lot to me.

I am currently hard at work on my new book, now renamed Fallen Birds (you can read about it here) and will be releasing the first few chapters to build up some buzz early in the new year. So if you are interested in following my releases, stay tuned!

And of course, have a wonderful Christmas break :)
