New Author – new book

We are very pleased to announce a new book from a new author – a rollicking adventure through the true life of a Colonial District Officer in Africa, Arabia and Hong Kong, from 1950s to 1990s.

Kenya’s Northern Frontier and Far Beyond by Hugh Walker MBE.

This was written by Hugh in his 89th year, from diaries and notes made over many decades. It was edited, expanded from conversations, moulded and formatted by our very own Lesley Curwen and by Paddy Magrane.

It was first privately published in Jan 2020 as hardback and paperback by Story Terrace.

Trenchant Books is delighted to have converted the text to a Kindle eBook and published this format on Amazon on 1 Apr 2020.

You can purchase print and eBook formats here.

First book coming v soon

Much excitement at the Trenchant Books house as our first book is close to publication.

‘How Can We Make This Happen? Successful Change Through Incentives and Trust” by Nic Vine is in final proofing for both the paperback and eBook versions.

Barring any ‘unknown unknowns’, this ground-breaking book will be available before the end of June (yes, this June).  This has been a background, on/off project for Nic over the last 5 years, and he deserves a modest round of applause for finally getting it over the line (offstage: “but I could tune the text some more”).  You can read about it on the Books page.
