Offgrid Boaters

one couple's alternative nomad life on a

25foot yoghurt pot

Offgrid Boaters book cover

In 2018, Glenn and Mandy gave up their rented house in town to move onto a fifty-year-old cabin boat. With no practical boating experience, they cruised down the Thames and onto the Kennett and Avon Canal where they embarked on their exciting new life as offgrid boaters.

"A cabin boat is basically a floating yoghurt pot. It’s nothing like a steel narrowboat and ours is older than us and still a beauty."

This is their voyage of discovery. The challenges they faced in downsizing to the space of a modern living room. The joys of summer on the water and the reality of icy winters.

Full of humour and loads of useful advice, this is an ideal read for anyone looking for a fulfilling alternative to modern living.


The book is almost ready! I am just doing final revisions and once the publisher's printers are back, I'll be able to make Offgrid Boaters available.

Reviews of Sons of Iberia

WARHORN is more than just a story of warriors, battle cries and storming the ramparts of a besieged city. 

Absolutely captivating. Laughs and heartwrenches all the way. Absolutely recommended. 5/5

Having read the first 2 books in the series, I couldn't wait for the release of the 3rd book. It didn't disappoint. Graphical and didn't feel like a 'historical novel'.

Well written and well researched. A time in history which fascinates me, I can't wait to get started on the next novel of this series.

Howl of Blades

Sons of Iberia

Book 4

On a fog-shrouded morning beside a lake in Italia, fifty thousand warriors strain their ears to hear the first tread of Roman boots.

Soon the silence of the new day will be shattered by screams and awash in blood. The Battle of Lake Trasimene will have started. Carthage and Rome are at war and the bloodshed will not end for many years.

In Iberia, Barca rule becomes ruthless. A Bastetani village is pillaged. Its people put to the sword. Caros and his companions fight back, but he is accused of the killings and a price is put on his head.


Meanwhile, in Italia, Hannibal has defeated a Roman army and has his sights set on Rome. First, a hated Roman consul and his legions must be defeated.

Ride with Caros across Iberia, as he fights mercenaries and allies with Gauls. Voyage with him to Italia and stand with him in battle as the armies of Hannibal and Flaminius fight to the death.
