'Your first Novel is always said to be a labour of love and that is very true of You Are Here. I began it as a tribute to all those Lad's holidays I went on before getting married in my Thirties. It is a fact that the European beach resorts are not just full of rampant teenagers on the pull as mingled in are a number of small groups of Thirtysomething and even Fortysomething guys trying to prove they have still got it before settling for the TV and slippers lifestyle. In the end You Are Here became a novel of many themes but the main focus was on taking stock on where life could take you under the influence of work, love and modern living but the most significant influence is always from our past.
'You Are Here' explores the lives of Gavin, Dave, Phil and Tony - four thirtysomethings who feel they might be over the hill and may never meet the women of their dreams. They are about to embark on yet another holiday - religiously known as 'The Campaign'. They all have only one thing in mind: girls, and lots of them. Slightly risque with plenty of humour and fun, encompassing many incidents with the opposite sex, which most males, and some females, no doubt, could relate to! Most definitely a funny and entertaining read with a nice little twist at the end.
