Pre-order my new woodworking-for-beginners book

I'm delighted to announce that my new self-illustrated woodworking book for absolute beginners is now available for pre-order.

'Cut, Shape, Assemble' will show you how to create wooden items for your home - even in a very small area and with just a few hand-tools.

I specifically wanted to encourage women to take up this enjoyable craft, as they've traditionally been excluded from it by its macho reputation.

Published by Countryman Press - an imprint of WW Norton - it is released in the US in August and in the UK in September

The Greatest

Speakeasies in

New York City

Down dark alleys, hidden behind boarded-up shops or anonymous doors, are New York’s biggest secrets: the raucous, cocktail-swigging speakeasies that are still in operation 80 years after Prohibition ended. 

 

Some are original – relics from the Jazz Age, restored to their former glory – whilst others have meticulously recreated the Prohibition era with antique fittings, gin in teacups, and a Boardwalk Empire aesthetic of bartenders in waistcoats mixing cocktails in subterranean pleasure palaces. 

As it's an e-book, it can be easily referred to on smartphone or tablet whilst you’re out and about.

 

So if you want a shortcut to living like a local in New York, this book will direct you to those great secret bars with the killer cocktails.
