Tell us a story about this website.

In order to write the series, I trained and qualified as a professional bodyguard. This is what I call « method writing » - it’s similar to an actor’s method. So I acquired skills in unarmed combat, defensive driving, tactical firearms, threat assessments, surveillance, and even anti-ambush exercises ! Now when I visit schools, I demonstrate to the students these techniques and bring the Bodyguard books to life !

Why did you use this Sandvox design?

I choose Lithium Red for its clean cut look and excellent photo visuals. I loved the option of replacing the banner and the drop down menus.
