The Rough Draft

If you can't go through it. Go around it.

Anybody who knows me knows I’m a big fan of the Mini Cooper S, well the ones prior to the point where BMW decided to bloat them up. For me the 2002 – 2006 versions are my favourites. I prefer the Cooper S over just the regular Cooper. There’s nothing wrong with the regular Cooper but I like the punch in the back you get when you put your foot down on a 1.6L Supercharged engine.

I’ve been looking around for a replacement for my current 04 Mini Cooper S so when this beauty came up on Kijiji I was all over it. The gentleman who owned it was meticulous in his service records and the car is in really good nick for an 03. It’s not quite as well appointed as my 04 for creature comforts but it’s so nice I’m thinking I’m going to leave it bone stock and getting into doing the odd car show here and there (you know, cause I need another hobby).

My son Colin is a big fan of the Mini too.

I’ll be putting my current Mini Cooper S up for sale next week after it goes for service.

Book Stuff

Had a great chat with my Editor Andrew Lowe this morning about his edit of Reliance. I’m forty odd pages in to my rewrite and I’m very happy with the work he’s put into it. So if you’re looking for an Editor, I highly recommend him. You can check him out on Reedsy or through his web page His rates are reasonable and the end result is totally worth it.

As always, you can find my thriller Devil’s Gambit on Amazon in print and for the Kindle. It’s less than cup of coffee and no foam.
