I was friends with Derrick at school, and even then he had some mental health issues. Sad in any event.

Hi Dave, How nice to hear from you. Wine is also sonething of a passion for me. On tgat point I would urge you to seek out some of theIsraeli wines which are becoming popular these days. In particular Saslove is a wonderful vineyard with a small but very high quality Yeild. I look forward to hearing your comments on the book. Thanks and best wishes.

Hi there everyone.
I'm VERY excited to announce that my book, "Train in the Distance" has been PUBLISHED! Based on my personal experiences as a reporter in Durban in the 1970s, it tells the story of young journalist campaigning against apartheid, its symbols and often brutal ramifications; searching for truth and freedom...freedom of expression, freedom of choice, freedom from fear. His quest eventually brings him to Israel, where his hopes seem to be on the verge of realization, only to be dashed by personal loss in a terrorist attack. The chilling truth behind the attack sends him on a further mission - for revenge. This story presents a different narrative about apartheid-South Africa: not told from a point of view of a black person suffering under that loathsome policy; but from the point of view of a young white journalist, with a strong social conscience, who passionately hates what the policy is doing to his country and its people, and faces the dire consequences of his anti-government stance. In effect, a white victim of apartheid. It covers the turbulent years of mid-1970s South Africa, fear and tragedy during the first Intifada in Israel...and the interlaced events of the First Gulf War, the eventual capture of Saddam Hussein...and an ironic twist.
