My first ghost-writing job saw me work alongside Flt Lt Damian Clayton on his autobiography: Through Adversity: The Fight for Rugby League in the RAF, which charts not only his military career but his endeavours to make his beloved sport of rugby league.

Published by Scratching Shed Publishing in October 2013, the book was roundly well received, becoming one of two titles nominated as reads of the year by rugby league’s governing body The RFL at its annual Presidents Ball.

Priced £10.99 in paperback, Through Adversity if available in all good book shops and on Amazon where it has received numerous five-star reviews.
