Following several lectures to the medical profession, I was encouraged by doctors and nurses to write about my experience. I wanted to inform the public and the medical profession, via an interesting read, how it felt to be critically ill and travel the difficult journey from intensive care to kidney dialysis, a kidney transplant and rehabilitation. I have included the coping strategies that I developed to help me through this challenging time. I hope that they may help other people who are seriously ill, and also those in demanding life situations.
Most important, however, is that it may motivate someone to become a kidney donor while alive or an organ donor after their death. This could save or greatly enhance a life. If so then all the time, energy, passion and cost involved in this book’s production will have been worthwhile.
On The Toss Of A Coin will be launched as a paperback and e-book. Available now at Amazon.co.uk for pre-order, and at Joseph's Bookstore 1257 Finchley Road, Temple Fortune, London NW110AD. At usual bookshops from 28th February 2017. Published by Matador. £9.99 ISBN 9781785899218.

Shocking, frightening, brilliantly and finely observed, optimistic, spirited, moving and very funny.
