An early career as a BBC reporter and presenter on network radio and TV in the UK.
Had a book published by one of the world's largest publishers in the mid-1990's. They made such a mess of it, I decided I could do better myself. So I created Centre Publishing. My first self-published book (now out of print) was "Your Personal Survival Guide to the 21st Century" The average sales for such a genre is about 5,000 copies. It sold 13,000. My next book Rapid Result Referrals sold about 22,000 copies.
In 2007 I co-wrote a controversial book with Mary T Cleary, the founder of Amen.ie, an Irish charity set up to help innocent men who become the victims of horrendous domestic abuse. A taboo topic. This book has helped thousands of innocent men and women. The media refused point blank to have anything to do with a book called "That Bitch: Protect Yourself Against Women with Malicious Intent". For America we changed the title to the more politically correct "Venus: The Dark Side". Still no publicity. That Bitch outsells Venus by a factor of about seven copies to one. They are EXACTLY the same book. Both books receive 4 and 5 star ratings on Amazon in the UK and US. Bitter women tend to give it 1 star ratings. It is absolutely not anti-women.
Genuine, nice women have no problem with it because they know its not about them. We have both been verbally attacked quite viciously by the very women the book is about.
We are both asked repeatedly why the book focuses on 'women' not 'people' generally. Countless books exist about 'bad' men. That seems socially acceptable. Yet, there is very little written about the atrocious behavior of these women. They have sold about 8,000 copies all together.
After a few years, I really needed to write about a more uplifting topic though and turned my attention to kind, loving relationships. I wrote "How to be The One" - its premise is; rather than being obsessed about finding 'the one', it asked the question "If you met 'the one' how confident would you be that they would regard you as 'the one' for them?" The book looks at how to be a far more appealing person, first to yourself, then to others. Getting yourself 'ready' for the time you meet that special person. It's about being a better girlfriend, boyfriend, husband or wife. Sort of personal development for relationships. It's different approach to the subject led to a double page spread in the UK's largest circulation women's magazine YOU - part of The Mail on Sunday. CNN.com also featured it and it picked up many detailed articles in a lot of national magazines.
More recently I have written two books. They are a pair.
One is for all 15-25 year guys, the other is for all 15-25 year women. Called Dear Son: what I wish I'd known at your age and Dear Daughter: what I wish I'd known at your age (which includes interviews about life by a group of amazing women).
These books are designed to provide all young people with practical, no-nonsense advice on a variety of topics. And provide a platform for more meaningful conversations with parents. They have been turned into eBooks with different titles.
