My book ‘From triples to triplets’ is the story of my journey into fatherhood.
From overcoming a destructive past of alcoholism and mental health diagnosis to dealing with a high risk pregnancy and the birth of my daughters.
All proceeds go to running this blog and raising awareness of the importance of fatherhood.

About the blog is an award winning blog, created in a sleep deprivation haze. It fast became a popular non-profit resource for parents everywhere who are looking to relate to real experiences and gain understanding in ways to overcome the pressures of daily living.
