Back on Top

High-profile escort, journalist, author, mum and sex-industry pioneer. A woman who prides herself on staying true and being empowered – even mentoring other women – yet who, when it comes to her own life, had become a dishevelled bloody mess.

We left Samantha X confused at the end of Hooked – should she stay escorting or hang up her high heels? In this fascinating, compelling sequel we see Samantha grow in to her new role as boss of her escort agency Samantha X Angels, how she deals with the girls, falling in love with Mr Big (while still managing to sneak in a few clients) … and much, much more!

Back on Top is fast-paced and occasionally outrageous, told with the flair readers loved in Hooked. Samantha X does not hold back when it comes men, love, sex – and getting herself back on top.
Roadies

Roadies

This is your backstage pass to the hidden side of the music industry – the tantrums, the fights, the tensions, the indulgence, the sex, the alcohol, the drugs. The roadies see it all, and now they are sharing their secrets.

Roadies are the unsung heroes of the Australian music industry. They unload the PAs and equipment, they set it all up, they make sure everything is running smoothly before, during and after the gigs. Then they pack everything up in the middle of the night, put it in the back of the truck and hit the road to another town – to do it all over again.

They know everything about the pre- and post-show excesses. They bear witness to overdoses, the groupies, the obsessive fans. They are part of – and often organise – all the craziness that goes on behind the scenes of the concerts and pub gigs you go to. From The Rolling Stones to AC/DC, Bob Marley to Courtney Love, Sherbet to The Ted Mulry Gang, INXS to Blondie – the roadies have seen it all. And now they’re stepping onto the stage and talking.

The Roadies’ Creed: If it’s wet, drink it. If it’s dry, smoke it. If it moves, **** it. If it doesn’t move, throw it in the back of the truck.

The Scandalous Freddie McEvoy

The Scandalous Freddie McEvoy

Swashbuckler, daredevil racing-car champion, Winter Olympian, gambler, smuggler, scoundrel, stud and suspected spy – this is the fascinating story of the scandalous Freddie McEvoy.

Born in Melbourne in 1907, Freddie’s life took him from socialising with a young Errol Flynn in Sydney and on to the French Riviera in the heady years leading up to World War II.

With his dashing good looks and charm, Freddie lived a swashbuckling life, quickly figuring out his path to easy fortune was through lonely rich women. World War II didn’t stop Freddie’s hedonistic pursuits – he skipped enlistment for Australia and Britain to party on in Hollywood, where he renewed his friendship with the now infamous Errol Flynn. Always short of cash, Freddie smuggled guns and diamonds on his yacht between California and Mexico and was rumoured to have worked as a spy.

It was a life lived large and Freddie’s death in 1951 was under the most mysterious circumstances off the coast of Morocco: his body was found naked and scalped . . .

Frank Walker, bestselling author of The Tiger Man of Vietnam and Maralinga, has for the first time uncovered the complete, outrageous and incredible true story of Freddie McEvoy, Australia’s daredevil Lothario.

‘Freddie was one of the great livers of life. He lived it the way he saw it – he didn’t give a hoot.’ Errol Flynn

‘Pleasure is my business.’

‘an extraordinary yarn . . . finely researched’ Sun-Herald on Frank Walker’s Ghost Platoon
Hell Week and Beyond

Hell Week and Beyond

Hell Week and Beyond will take the reader to the sands of Coronado Beach in San Diego, where Navy SEALS are put through the most grueling training known to mankind.

Grit, commitment, heart, and soul are needed to become a Navy SEAL because these are the elite forces who go into the toughest battles for America. Many of the most well known SEAL warriors will be interviewed for this book and provide the stories of what got them through and the humor of those that made it.

Those that make it almost always have one thing in common: humor. Find out why!

Part Top Gun, part Bull Durham, the book will deliver the goods for those in the know and general readers who admire the elite forces for all they do.
The President Will See You Now

The President Will See You Now

In The President Will See You Now, devoted Reagan insider Peggy Grande shares behind-the-scenes stories, intimate moments, and insights into one of America’s most beloved presidents. Grande, who started in the Office of Ronald Reagan as a college student and earned her way into a coveted role as the president’s Executive Assistant, offers an unparalleled perspective on the post-presidency of a political icon.

Grande’s stories and never-before-seen photos show a unique, private side to a public figure and leader who reshaped conservatism, ushered in an era of prosperity, and helped spur the end of the Cold War. Grande reveals what day-to-day life was like in Reagan’s California office, including the former president’s relationship with the First Lady and his interactions with friends, world leaders, and everyday Americans. Grande recalls how Reagan kept a vigorous schedule for years after he left the White House, his robust engagement with others, and ongoing political advocacy. Despite his eventual Alzheimer’s diagnosis, Grande shows how Ronald Reagan remained true to core beliefs, his gentlemanly kindness, and his undying hope for his country.

Today the Reagan legacy looms over American politics more than ever. Grande reminds readers why: When Ronald Reagan was president, we not only loved ourselves but also loved America, and the American values he represented: faith, optimism, and patriotism.

Well

Well

Sarah Thebarge, a Yale-trained physician assistant, nearly died of breast cancer at age twenty-seven, but that did not end her deeply felt spiritual calling to medical missions in Africa. Risking her own health, she moved to Togo, West Africa-ranked by the United Nations as the least happy country in the world-to care for sick and suffering patients.
Serving without pay in a mission hospital, she pondered the intersection of faith and medicine in her quest to help make the world “well.”

In the hospital wards, she witnessed death over and over again. In the outpatient clinic, she daily diagnosed patients with deadly diseases, many of which had simple but unavailable cures. She lived in austere conditions and nearly succumbed herself in a harrowing bout with malaria.

She describes her experiences in gripping detail and reflects courageously about difficult and deep human connections-across race, culture, material circumstances, and medical access.

Her experience exemplifies the triumph of surviving in order to share the stories that often go untold. In the end, WELL is an invitation to ask what happens when, instead of asking why God allows suffering to happen in the world, we ask, “Why do we?”
