Tripping Over is a true story of life in post war England in the 1950s and 1960s. It tells the story of John, who grows up in the shadow of his dad, a returned war hero. John senses he is different but not in a good way and knows he has big shoes to fill. He is not coping well. Beleaguered and confused, poor judgement and clumsiness dog his every move.

When his parents visit the annual Earl's Court Motor Show to buy a new car but return with a boat instead - turmoil follows. Later he is almost killed on a disastrous wild horse ride on Rotten Row but is he really guilty of the police accusation of fraud? As a teenager John explores his sexuality, only to fall in love for all the wrong reasons.

John's self-deprecating reminisces are often illuminating as the reader accompanies him on his bittersweet journey of both triumph and disaster.

John's first book Reluctant Hero, is about his dad, Bill, who was a Lancaster bomber pilot in WW2. Tripping Over is its sequel. Sex, Lies and Crazy People is due to be published in 2014 and follows on from Tripping Over. They are all true stories.
