The Desert Run

What does it take for an ordinary guy to do something extraordinary? 

Meet Jake. He’s looking to use his new degree in Economics and Business Studies. But he can’t get a job and a mountain of student debt is threatening to overwhelm him.

And when the ordinary life he has planned doesn’t much impress the girl of his dreams, he starts to consider his best friend’s idea to get rich quick. After all, it’s only a little bit illegal, and they're smart enough to not get caught. . .
The Desert Run is an intriguing and suspenseful thriller charting how one young man succumbs to the siren call of adventure. 

One little crime doesn't make you a criminal. Does it?

The Desert Run is available now on Amazon Kindle.

The Wave at Hanging Rock

Jesse and his friends are the only kids who surf in a small beach town. But as they grow, so does the popularity of their sport, and they soon become anxious to protect their waves. And when the boys discover a perfect surfing wave hidden inside a private estate, they agree to do anything to keep their secret safe.

Natalie’s life is torn apart when her husband is lost at sea in circumstances that don’t make sense. Her search to discover his fate puts her on a collision course with Jesse in a way that neither could imagine, and nobody can control.

The Wave at Hanging Rock is a tense and surprising psychological thriller that will grip you from the very first line, and keep you guessing till the very last page.

The Wave at Hanging Rock is available now on Amazon.

Windsurf Round Britain

Long Standing Ambition is an account of one man’s solo windsurfing journey around the coast of Great Britain. It is written by Jono Dunnett, Gregg’s older brother, who recently became the first person to complete this mission (and the first to attempt it as well). Sleeping either under his sail, or relying on the kindness of strangers, Jono took to the water alone, in all weathers, over 98 days during what passed for a summer in 2015. It’s more than a blow by blow account of what happened (although it’s packed full of surprises, setbacks, wonders, dangers and those fortunate chance encounters that mark out proper adventures). It’s also a deeply insightful take on why some people take on crazy challenges, and what it means to achieve them. 

Gregg played the role of telephone support on Jono’s adventure, being on hand for anything from up-to-the minute weather forecasts, advice on avoiding military exclusion areas or suggestions on where the nearest shop might be.

You can get Jono's book now on Amazon.

Where do stories come from?
Latest blog post

Where do stories come from? Something happened last weekend to get me thinking about that. I was on a visit home, to where I grew up, on the East coast of England. My brother was there as well, and we decided to do something to help him with the training of his next adventure. I'll explain what in a minute. But first of all I need to tell you about something that happened twenty five years ago, when I was just fifteen. 

Fifteen is old enough to be drinking, but not old enough to be in pubs. So a bunch of us had gone camping for the night, with a few bottles of cider and, I think, a…

Don't miss this its a real treat. I couldn't put it down and didn't want it to end. The character's are well drawn and you feel as if you know them well. There lies the rub. If this is Gregg's first outing and can capture a girl who doesn't get surfing at ALL bring on the next. The surfing underpins the whole thing and there's explanatory surf tips which were so well done they add a resonance. I wouldn't ever have imagined I'd rave about a book of this kind but its much more than you'd expect. I've given it a 5 star by my own rating of 'Will I miss it when it ends?' And yes I certainly do…
