(But aren't they all?)
Sometimes, the Universe goes out of its way, to invite the opportunity of not just a second, but a third incarnation of life.
You Only Live Thrice is an often comic but brutally honest account of surviving cardiac arrest at home, embracing the opportunity for a second life, struggling to get balance in that second life, only to be forced to close a well-established event business, due to Covid.
You'll be taken on the rollercoaster journey of diagnosis, resuscitation, and recovery, to considering parallel Universes, the administration processes of an afterlife, how to survive being experimented on by oversized insects, dealing with a parent’s death, and managing the mixed emotions attached to a business closure.
Ultimately learning to appreciate that not knowing what to do next, can be a wonderful opportunity.
Uplifting, frank and irreverent, this isn’t a self-help book. But in testing times, it can help to realise that your own perspective on life, is sometimes your greatest Superpower.
You Only Live Thrice is available in paperback on Amazon for £12.99 and if you have Prime, there will be no delivery charge.
At over 300 pages, that's frightening value. Seriously, I don't know how I sleep.
If you order from this site, I'd be happy to personalise your book (woo-hoo!) but the charge is £14.99 as I have to cover P&P.
Apologies if you feel the signing devalues your purchase.
You can also buy a Kindle version on Amazon and an Audiobook is planned.
The whole world saw how quickly someone's life can change from just another day at the office, to the lights going out, when Christian Eriksen collapsed due to Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA), during Denmark's opening game at the European Championships in the summer of 2021. He was fortunate in that he had world-class facilities and fully trained medics pitchside. Not everyone is that lucky and watching it unfold, not knowing what the outcome would be, had a greater impact on me than I expected.
Every year over 100,000 people die of Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) in the UK alone. Globally, it claims more lives than colorectal cancer, breast cancer, prostate cancer, influenza, pneumonia, road accidents, HIV, firearms, and house fires combined.
SCA UK is a registered UK charity and peer support group that helps survivors, and their families navigate life after cardiac arrest. It provides education and information in the form of on and off-line literature and events, which is invaluable to patients, families, and NHS teams across the UK.
Every copy of this book sold will generate a donation of £1 to this amazing charity. £1 doesn't sound much compared to the cover price but ask any self-published author; if we earn 20% in royalties, we’re doing well!
So, by buying this book, not only will you be rewarded by being highly entertained, but you'll also be entitled to the warm fuzziness of knowing you're contributing to helping survivors and their families build back their lives after an SCA has struck.

Sudden Cardiac Arrest UK is registered in England and Wales as a charity, no. 1200875
