The Limey Project

A long, weird cycling odyssey into the heart of the USA



A comic, surreal and eye-opening true story capturing a 4,500 mile cycling adventure across the USA by two friends, accompanied by an invisible, talking bear.


The book’s descriptions of the people and places you’ll find in roadside America capture an intimate portrait of a country at an incredible time in its history. And the exploration of our individual motivations for adventure reveals a universal truth about being much more able than we often think we are. At the heart of the book is a simple message about the incredible power of the humble bicycle.

and other stories

curious tales of exactly 900 words


My first collection of short fiction is now available to buy. 

I challenged myself to write a short story of exactly 900 words, every month for three years. It was an exciting creative journey that also helped me to improve my work as a non-fiction / business writer. The result is this collection of tiny tales that answer some of life’s biggest questions. From sweary fables and ghost stories to science fiction and modern fairy tales about the world we live in. And from Pythonesque parodies to heartbreaking stories of love, you’ll find it all here, often in mind-bending proximity. Take it with you or shove it in your loo and consult whenever in need of delight, distraction or provocation.

"The quality that makes this collection so endearing is the broad range of topics, genres, and literary tools employed by the author. It's very much the writing of someone who writes for the enjoyment of it; while the stories here are marked by emotion, humor, insight, and literarily experimental ideas, none of them get too heavy-handed. It's a light journey through someone else's fun, and that fun is contagious."
