Paris, a novel

Miles has left his private school fractionally on the early side, after an incident involving a bottle of Green Chartreuse, or at least what was left of it, and is now determined to leave home and make his way in the world of 1980s London. But his real ambition is to play blues piano in the 1960s or earlier, in Paris, or Chicago or Berlin, and the fulfilment of this unlikely, if poetic, dream is further complicated by other factors that are currently hidden deep within him, and of which he has no idea as the story begins. “Lively, witty and always superbly engrossing. I thoroughly recommend it.” Christopher Sandford, best-selling biographer

The London Hustler

cover

Do YOU want to thrive in London without breaking the bank?

In July 2015, I left Australia and moved to London based on not much more than a gut feel. But I hated it. Broke and miserable, I just couldn’t find my groove and was wondering if the “gut feel” that led me here was in fact an almighty bum steer. Sheer determination and hustle led me to discover amazing ways to save money, meet new people, enjoy what London has to offer – and life has flourished ever since.

The London Hustler is the book that I wish someone had given me when I first moved to London. It is packed full of great tips on how to settle in, specific networks to join, places to go, ways to save money, travel more, meet new people, explore new things and maximize your time in The Big Smoke. It’s a mix of personal experiences and practical insights all designed to help you get the most out of everything this amazing city has to offer from day 1 – without the struggle and overwhelm.

Join me in falling in love with this brutal and beautiful City.
