Here's some info about my 2005 book on the Dunedin Star, a British merchant ship which ran aground on the Skeleton Coast of Namibia in 1942. An astonishing survival tale. Follow the link toAmazon plus the Observer review. Was nominated for the Mountbatten Maritime Prize. Posting this in an attempt to move everything to one website. Details on my previous book, Back Home, to follow. Every now and then a producer will get in touch about making a film of Dead Reckoning. Very flattering, but have learned to not pop the cork prematurely. Champagne is overrated in my opinion anyway.
