A note from the author

After more years of writing, revising and rewriting than it probably should have taken me, I’m delighted and relieved to announce that What’s Left of Me: How I lost a fight with a rogue hippo and won my life is ready to be read by someone other than my long-suffering editor.

People have been bugging me for years to write a book; they seem to find my story entertaining and think that by sharing my experiences, I can help people.

For every copy of What’s Left of Me purchased on www.hawkingspost.com, we’ll donate $1 to Project XI, one of my Foundation’s initiatives designed in appreciation of our veterans service that supports their re-entry into their lives when they get “back home.” Who’d have thought that my PTSD and connection to the Army would turn out to be this useful? I guess there are some advantages to having been up to my backside down a hippo’s throat? Go figure! Please read the first chapter above and if you like it, follow the “purchase” link to buy a copy.



“An engrossing, thrilling, rewarding read. And all the more remarkable because it is true.” Richard Farrell, Author, The Art of Software Support and The Zeit Guy Chronicles
