“I’ve never thrown the book at anyone without having first read it.”                    -Judge McKay Chauvin

Lawyer Book:

The inaugural book in the Rumpole series introduces one of the great courthouse characters of all time. A collection of thoughtfully hilarious short stories featuring a self-described “Old Bailey hack” as he uses his considerable wit and formidable wits to champion a variety of clients he lovingly refers to as “local villains” before a variety of judges he not-so-lovingly refers to as “inJustices”.

"You Gotta Read Ths Book" Book:

The story follows five-year old Peekay as he learns the first rule of survival and self-preservation – the power of one – while growing up in South Africa during WW II. It will make you laugh. It will make you cry. It will make you stand up and cheer. You will thank me for recommending this to you. You’re welcome.

The Great American Western:

There is something special about a book that can be made into an Academy Award-winning movie … twice. The narrator, Mattie Ross of near Dardanelle in Yell County, Arkansas, recounts the great adventure of her life when she, as a fourteen year old girl, rode into Indian Territory with a U.S. Marshal named Cogburn and a Texas Ranger named LaBoeff to catch the cowardly dog who robbed and killed her father.

Tales of Derring Do:

Napoleon’s army is sweeping across Spain in 1809. A freshly minted Lieutenant raised from the ranks for saving Wellington’s life must take command of the demoralized, distrustful men of the 95th Rifles and lead them to safety through the enemy-infested mountains of Spain. The first in a series of expertly researched and deftly told tales of derring do. Women want him. Men want to be him. Sharpe is to the literary British Army what Horatio Hornblower or Jack Aubrey is to the literary British Navy.
