Ex Gunner Writes a Book

Discussion in 'Gunners' started by pensionpointer, Nov 27, 2008.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. A shameless plug for a mate of mine and an ex Gunner.

    Ben Myers was a troopie in 46 Talavera (Cow & Castle!) Bty on Op Granby. He left the Army and became a criminal barrister in Manchester (plenty of work up there!). He has always had a passion for writing and has just managed to get his first book published "The Bad Tuesdays - Twisted Symmetry". It is fantasy fiction aimed at teenagers/young adults so it ought to fit the usual ARRSERs profile! Ben has a contract to write a series so this is the first of several and may be the next Harry Potter as I understand the film rights are generating keen interest.

    The book is launched on 9 Jan so might be a good purchase for those chrimbo book vouchers from Auntie! Copies can be pre-ordered from Waterstones, WH Smiths, Borders ... but apparently not Woolies!

    Of course he does...and so do I. Stenciled on the rear bins of the Spartans!

    6, 18 and 62 Tps. BC was Greyskull and his driver Jonah became very good at digging in! BK was later sent to Collie for embezzlement and OpsO was parachuted in, got his G2 feed from the week old copies of the Times he received and made everyone do press-ups to build up their muscles for shoulder launch!
