BOOK 1: The Modern MAMIL

My first book was published by Ice House Books. Illustrated by the amazing Spencer Wilson, ‘The Modern Mamil: How to look pro’ is funny look into MAMIL (Middle Aged Men In Lycra) culture.

If there’s someone in your life who spends most of their time squeezing into Lycra, drinking coffee and (very occasionally) going out for a bike ride, this is the perfect gift for them.


Like all Middle Aged Men in Lycra, you know in your heart of hearts that, if there was any justice in the world, you’d be a pro cyclist. If only the stars had aligned differently , making you taller, thinner, sportier or less fond of cake – it could all have been so different. You’d be up there on the podium with the trophies, the sponsorship deals and the press intrusion.”

I’m very proud of it.
