Living in Lanzarote

Living in Lanzarote

Living in Lanzarote is a book which covers the first six years after our family’s move to the island at the turn of the century.

It will tell you why we chose to make the move, our ups and downs in coming to terms with that decision, and how we slowly integrated into The Canarian way of life.

It’s an upbeat book, because things went well for us, and we grew a large and successful business after starting with very little. Our children grew up in the wonderful safe environment that Lanzarote provides to those of us lucky enough to live here.

The book was completed in 2006, and is a valuable insight for anyone contemplating a move to the island. Its 106 pages long.

You can order Living in Lanzarote as a paperback at £9.99 + tax and shipping, or at £2.75 for your Amazon Kindle.

Still Living in Lanzarote

Still living in Lanzarote

If you’ve read Living in Lanzarote, you’ll know that the book covered our first six years after we moved to the island, and you’ll also know that the book was emphatically positive, as everything seemed to go very well for us!

The follow up takes us from 2006 until 2014, and includes some extremely tough years for us. Years when we battled the recession and lost almost everything we had worked so hard for. Years when we struggled against difficulties in restoring our old house and coped with the loss of one member of the group of five of us who originally arrived on the island so full of hope.

But it also tells the story of how we slowly began to turn things around, how we gave birth to a completely new business, transformed ourselves from couch potatoes into Ironmen and it charts our continuing adventures and new discoveries on the island that we now know will always be our home.

I’ve pulled no punches in this book, and some of it is gritty and controversial. I make no apologies for that – I’ve simply told it how it was.

You can order Still Living in Lanzarote as a paperback at £10.99 + tax and shipping, or at £2.75 for your Amazon Kindle.

Never Leaving Lanzarote – The New Book!

I’m writing Never Leaving Lanzarote currently, and as with the previous books, it will be available in paperback and for Kindle.

Never Leaving takes us from 2014 to the present day, including the start of our travels around the world, growing our business, dealing with the pandemic and much more.

It focuses on how lockdown in Lanzarote, after getting home on the very last flights out of Australia and London, helped us to reconnect with the amazing, wonderful island, and why it will always be home.

We’re aiming to publish it towards the end of 2021. Put your name and email address into the box below if you’d like me to let you know when it’s available.
