Twisted Trails Sells 600 Copies!

The New Year has begun with two round numbers that make me smile. The first is that the Twisted Trails Series has sold 600 copies. These two books, made up of short stories about mountain biking have taken on a life of their own. Despite a lack of commercial backing, people who love the sport keep finding these books on Amazon and enjoying them.

The second number is 1,200. This is the total number of books sold since I starting my writing career in 2003. Virgin Gloves, a boxing novel, was my first story. For more than a decade it was my best selling title. It was only recently that Twisted Trails passed it in sales and reviews.

To be honest I don't know what the future holds for this series or for my writing. I'm currently concentrating on my day job and new responsibilities. Should a unique song find rhythm in my heart you can be certain I will give it a chance to sing.

Twisted Trails gets Love from the UK

Cycling is big in the United Kingdom. While the vast majority of riders roll along the roads, the UK has still has a diverse collection of dirt trails and MTB heroes worthy of the name. It is not easy for an author to jump across the pond so in the meantime I am very happy to hear from fans who are enjoying the Twisted Trails books. We may be thousands of miles apart but everyone who shreds in the dirt shares the same heart. Thank you!

"A great read. Lot's of interesting stories all with cycling at their heart. Worth a go!"
Keith B - 5 Stars

Twisted Trails Sponsors Zoomers Running Club

Back in 2012 I decided to try something new - running races. My first event was a local trail run put on by the Zoomers Running Club. The exhilaration of completing the 5K coupled with the spark that comes from lively competition gave me a whole new appreciation for running. Over the next few years I would take part in 15 more such events while taking photos of the races and writing stories for their newsletter.

Zoomers is more than a race promoter, they are a community of local runners. They hold a casual group run every Thursday night at Englewood Beach (Check here for updates). They hold an annual awards ceremony for their own race series along with other social events. Most importantly they support each others ambitions.

The Twisted Trails Series is proud to sponsor the Zoomer's efforts and events. I have dusted off my running shoes and signed up for the same race where I started four years ago, now called the Trick or Trot 5K. This is a Halloween race so the only question left to answer is - what should I wear?
