Want to know what it's really like to be a single mum? Perfect for fans of Part-Time Working Mummy and Why Mummy Drinks, this will inspire you to own your single status and make you realise that you're not alone. 'A joyful and moving first person account of solo parenthood and confronting societal expectations of "family" after falling pregnant age 24. Bravo Amy!' Pandora Sykes 'This goes off like a rocket and never lets up . . . this is like going out with your best mate for a coffee and them telling you their whole experience' Penny Smith 'Amy's frank and down-to-earth story is inspiring and honest' The Sun When Amy Nickell left university, she managed to nab herself a real life paid job as a celebrity reporter in London town. She literally got paid to ask Robert Downey Junior out for Nando's, while living with her gay best friend, their Harry Styles cardboard cutout and their pet toad, Snoop Frog. Things were good, they were fun and they definitely weren't serious. That life took a very grown up, very serious detour when Amy found herself unexpectedly pregnant. Pregnant and without a boyfriend. And so her life went in an altogether new direction... From plus one dating to lactating way too near to Simon Cowell, this is Amy's wonderfully frank, honest and hilarious story of a family that is anything but nuclear. So whether you've just arrived, are on the way or have been here a while, this is for anyone who's found themselves scratching their head and wondering: 'How the hell did I end up here?' What readers are saying about Confessions of a Single Mum: 'You don't have to be a single mum or female to love this book! Amy is an absolute hero and role model to everyone. Unbelievably funny and inspirational' 'Hilarious and heartwarming'

Confessions of a First Time Mum

Confessions of a First Time Mum

And, for the record, in case you are still in any doubt: I don't think single parents
have it “easier”; I would never advise anyone on their relationship status until I
actually knew them really, really well. And then possibly only after four gins.

Confessions of a Reformed Dieter

Confessions of a Reformed Dieter

... only was I going to be single (again) I was now going to be a single mum. I felt
a complete and utter failure and had I not had my son to live for, it is highly likely I
may have tried to kill myself a little more quickly than by eating myself to death.

'I love food. Even worse, I love junk food. If lard could be double deep-fried I would eat it. If I could deep-fry headache pills I would. So it's no wonder I'm now the size of a small yet economically viable continent...'When A. J. Rochester is selected to feature in a television series on obesity, she is at first appalled and then resolved. At 109 kilos (17 stone), she knows she needs to lose weight - not because she yearns to become a twiglet but so she can keep up with her little boy and turn her life around at last. But after years of fighting a losing battle with the flab, A. J. knows she needs a miracle. So she decides to ditch the 'quick-fix' diets and the faddy exercise equipment and try a new approach - one that involves discovering her own inner strengths. It may not be easy - but it pays off. Confessions of a Reformed Dieter charts the highs, lows and plateaus of A. J.'s incredible journey, from overcoming an early setback - waking up in hospital with a broken leg after a drunken binge - to the triumph of shedding the first, and last, kilo.

Confessions of a Royal Marine Commando: A Young Man's Mischievous Journey Into UK's Finest is one of the most inspiring and entertaining stories you will ever read. Author David Stanley has pulled off the unique feat of being both funny and inspirational while telling a tale which should give heart to every young kid in the country whose being bullied in the schoolyard or at home. The well known advertisements for Commandos state that 99.99 percent need not apply, David Stanley always knew that the famous Green Beret, the proud symbol of the Commandos, would be his. British Commandos are admired by military establishments around the world as being the elite of the elite, the most highly trained soldiers in history. The story of how a height challenged kid who was scared to walk to the local bus stop survived the brutal training regime imposed on aspiring Commandos and became one of the seven chosen out of an initial 50,000 applicants will warm the heart of anyone who has a dream they have been frightened to chase. Anyone who reads this book will find themselves belly laughing at Stanley's vividly comical descriptions of the notoriously tough training procedures at the Lympstone Commando Training Centre. "I wanted to do something different from normal," says author David Stanley of why he felt compelled to write Confessions of a Royal Marine Commando. "I wanted to look at the comical side of things. Most military books are very serious but in fact much about military life can be very funny and most soldiers I have known have a great sense of humor."
