At last!

I’m happy to say I’ve finally managed to publish my book ‘Learning how to land’. 

Based on the Sketchbook posts I’ve written over the last few years, ‘Learning how to land’ is a fast-paced collection of real life stories that drops you right into the heart of a front line community health team. 

It’s available on Amazon – 0.99 for the Kindle version (free if you have Kindle Unlimited) – and £5.99 for a paperback copy. If you email me via this website I can organise a signed copy… 😉

Hope you like it!


A bit about me

I’m currently working as a nursing assistant in the community, writing and taking pictures the rest of the time.

Before my current job I worked as an EMT in the ambulance service. You might have come across me as ‘Spence Kennedy’ in my long-running ambulance blog Siren Voices, and the book that came out of that: Frank’s Last Call. 

Thanks so much for reading. It’d be great to hear from you – either in a comment, by email, Twitter or Instagram.

The books so far…

Frank’s last call

The story of Spence Kennedy, a new paramedic starting work at a busy seaside ambulance station in the UK. Under the guidance of Frank, a paramedic coming up to retirement, Spence struggles to deal not only with his patients’ problems, but with his own sense of direction in the world.

How far would you go to right a wrong?

For Holly, it was a thousand years.

Exams are the least of Holly’s problems. Her mum has come up with yet another get rich quick scheme – the opening of a café in the local park – and Holly has been roped in to help. But as she sits daydreaming at the counter one morning, a mysterious young girl comes to visit. When she disappears after leaving an ancient silver penny as payment, something is begun that will challenge everything Holly thinks she knows – not just about her past, but about the fabric of time itself.

Into the Eclipse

When Kate leaves home to go to university, she is recruited by a secretive organisation and severs all links to her family. Ella, her mother, tries desperately to win her back. Eventually she turns to Noah, an anti-cult campaigner. Together they face up to an organisation prepared to do anything to protect itself, as it moves inexorably towards one final, cataclysmic event.

An exploration of faith and redemption, Into the Eclipse follows the paths of several very different lives as they intersect during a solar eclipse.
