I’m working on the next volume of my autobiography…
I’m going to begin from the day I left the SBS and the phone call that changed my life.
I spent over 25 years in the most challenging places on the planet, a lot of hostile places. Many of them conflict zones. I had many adventures, met quite a few interesting people and saw some pretty crazy things.
FIA Again isn’t a bad title either because a lot of my work was taking news crews into war zones and we were often the first media on the ground. On one notable occasion we were a bit too keen and arrived just before the soldiers and the fighting actually started. And there will be some hard truths. I think I’ve found a place I can hide to avoid the lawsuits for a few years!
I have finally written an updated version of First Into Action. I have wanted to make corrections for years after errors were brought to my attention by old friends. There’s only one additional short story in the update so probably not worth buying it just for that. I’m just relieved to have fixed those mistakes.
I’m pressing on with FIA2. But I have one small problem – I’m still in the field, although rarely these days, but I’m reluctant to complete the book in case something exciting happens before I hang up my guns for good!
