The Submariners Road Trip – Book 1
$10.00 each or Purchase both books as set $15

What happens when two old submariners decide to take a road trip and catch up on some old mates? What makes this different is they are old mates from way back but their careers have taken them in very different directions. They still have a strong bond and enjoy the type of banter only close mates and ex submariners understand. Exclusive offer – A limited number of the original copies have been donated to the museum to sell and have been signed by the author. There won’t be any more so when they go that’s it.

Submariners Christmas Cruise – Book 2
$10.00 or Purchase both books as set $15

The lads are at it again, creating mayhem and merriment on a Christmas cruise with their long-suffering wives. The two old fools are at it again. The second book in the series sees the lads taking their long-suffering wives on a Christmas cruise and a romantic getaway to make up for problems from the road trip. To say it doesn’t go well is an understatement. This is another romp through the misadventures and performances of these two old misfits. A good read and giggle.
