My Channel Swim attempt, undertaken for Acorns Children's Hospice in August 2014, took 14 months to train for. The swim itself, covering almost 22 miles, took over 11 hours.
The book, detailing not only the training and the swim, but also our experiences with Harry, took almost three years to write. It was not a cathartic process. If anything, it was more painful and harrowing than the swim and all of the training.
Peter Murray, professional voice-over artist, has now helped me produce a non-abridged audio version of the book. It is available now on Amazon/Audible, here.
