Joe Stirling is 95 today!

Happy Birthday Joe!  Today, 18th October 2019, Joe Stirling, the subject of my biography Escaping Hitler: A Jewish Boy’s Quest for Freedom and His Future (Pen and Sword Books, 2016) is 95 years old.  I first met Joe in 2011 and never imagined our friendship would last as long as it has.  I visited Joe this afternoon in his Norwich Care Home to find his two lovely daughters, Jane and Johanna, sharing his day with him.  We had tea and cake with candles, gifts and a loud rendition of ‘Happy Birthday to You.’ Joe continues to keep a keen interest in how my writing and public speaking careers are progressing and is always proud to hear about it when I have share his life stories with new audiences in Norfolk.  Many Happy Returns Joe!




The January edition of the glossy EDP Norfolk Magazine is now available, with a full page article on page 40 promoting Escaping Hitler in advance of publication later this month. I am grateful to journalist Rowan Mantell for a sensitive and enthusiastic report.  I was very excited to find a full page photo of myself opposite the piece, much to the amusement of other shoppers in the supermarket!!  Not long now before I will be setting up an online store from this website where you can place an order for my debut biography. Keep a look out for it!
