Stirling : A Story of Hope and a Boy’s Dream


The Kindle version is available at

“I was taught that everything is attainable, if you’re prepared to give up, to sacrifice, to get it. Whatever you want to do, you can do it, if you want to do it badly enough. However, most humans quit too soon in life.” *

– former British racing driver Stirling Moss’s famous quote

“The characters seem to represent the virtues and the resilience of the ‘little’ people, a story (or stories) to which we can all relate. In essence it’s about hope and faith: a tale (and tales) of the unquenchable spirit of tenacity in battling on, no matter what are our circumstances. And then eventually finding a way, a pathway to overcome personal adversity … and to ultimately succeed in glorious triumph.”

– anon
At least that was the goal (lofty) I set out to achieve in writing the book (“faction” or fact?)… but whether I actually did get there in the end, the aim is another matter entirely! Still the journey (most satisfying) made it all worthwhile.

“When (and where) love endures, hope inevitably follows”

– the writer “

“A story (and stories) to bring hope to the human soul.” A short, yet rewarding tale of faith, hope and especially love, together with many of my various articles on my great passion motor racing* and the human mind .

* other than my boys, of course and South Africa

Sorry dear M!

Anyway. ENJOY…

The End Of The Line


The End Of The Line


The End Of The Line

A story based on fact in the dark days
of grand apartheid, but with the rich
promise and hope that a new South Africa
can bring.

“The past is another country”

Everything in the book could have happened…

and perhaps it did!



Sea and sand
My love
My land,
God bless Africa
Many sunsets
Gold and crimson
Have dripped on the horizon,
Weeping for the dying day.
Many dawns have risen
In timely resurrection
From their cradles of light
Sunsets and dawns
Dawns and sunsets
I have seen them all
But when,
Oh when will I see that day
When love will walk the common way
To heal my wounded people
And break the shackles around their hearts?
– Don Mattera.
I love that poem.
