Scrambling For Enthusiastic Beginners 

Scrambling For Enthusiastic Beginners

Scrambling for Enthusiastic Beginners is a wonderful tale of growing up in the 1960s, told through the eyes of a beginner in life’s race.

There are no drugs, sex, rock ‘n’ roll or stardom. Instead, Frank blunders through life trying to find himself, and a path to his own future, always helped, and sometimes hindered, by his love of motorcycles.

Every page oozes warmth, humour and sometimes tears: an authentic story of life in the 1960s.

It’s a book which you won’t want to put down and one you’ll wish didn’t finish at the last page.

A Penguin in a Sparrow’s Nest

penguin-front-cover-articleStories of a Freelance Motorcycling Journalist

A Penguin in a Sparrow’s Nest is far more than a story about motorcycling and journalism. Instead, it recounts the inspirational journey of a sixteen year old who left his Council House to become a shelf painter and went on to be one of the most prolific motorcycling journalists of his generation with over 1500 articles and 18 books to his name.
