Action Man as last seen in 1971 (left) and as he may appear now (right)

I’ve lost Ac-sheee! I cried.

By the age of seven I was fully practiced in the art of getting my mother’s attention. I employed my full, tried and tested repertoire:

  1. The wheedling cry
  2. A dramatic catch in the voice
  3. An insistent tone
  4. Repeat the above until noticed.




No niche — just a blend of compelling stories and authentic personalities, each one written from a unique point of view
