‘The Christening’ is a landscape of the heart. It is a rollicking great read about a girl, a guy, a baby and a Spitfire. It has love and hate, war and peace, betrayal and redemption, the hand of God... and drinking Guinness. Based in Ireland, England and France, it’s a musical with action, drama, romance and magic. Appealing to a wide audience and age group, it’s like watching a Classic Movie that casts its spell over the wide panorama of your imagination.

About the Author:

I was named after Gary Player the famous golfer who was reputed to have said that ‘The harder I work the luckier I get!’ I know this to be true. By the time I turned thirty five, all of my dreams had come true. However it was during this time of bliss, that I lost a very close friend to cancer. Before he passed, he made me realise that there was a lot more to a bucket list when he had me promise to do three things! The first was to write a book that helps people. The tropical island of Vanuatu called and it was there that I wrote the first draft. Three hundred and twenty pages later the second item on the list required a world circumnavigation by yacht with our two children aged six and ten. We sold everything we had, bought a boat (hadn’t a clue what we were doing) and after twelve thousand miles, we arrived in the Sultanate of Oman in the Middle East - with a stowaway on board. Our third child - Molly (the stowaway) arrived six months later and became the inspiration for establishing the very first Early Intervention Centre for children with Down Syndrome (www.mollykatefoundation.co.nz). The cultural exchange that followed was the highlight of our personal and professional career. No man does it alone, so we brought in some trusted friends from overseas to help us carry the load. Unfortunately they turned out to be pirates and we ended up on the rocks and lost everything. Or so I thought! Like all great adventures there was luck involved, and we managed to escape back to Ireland. It was there that I discovered that there was one thing the pirates can never take ... and that’s your dreams! I finished writing ‘The Christening’ which has since been published in partnership with Guinness. To date we have raised over ten thousand dollars in support of children with Down Syndrome and other “worthy causes” throughout the world. The third item on the list is to make a movie! Crazy I know! A percentage of the profits from my memoir Wildrover, The Christening and the movie will go to helping children with special needs. It’s a pretty big hairy audacious goal! I invite you to get involved. I’m recruiting helpers ... lots and lots of helpers to make this dream come true. If the idea appeals then sign up to my website for regular updates. www.trysoftaproductions.com. You can purchase a copy of The Christening now and be among one of the first to read Wildrover when it comes out early 2014. Go on ... live the dream!!
