  • HI I went to your talk at vegfest in London and also bought your book GROWL you said you would like any feedback,so I just wanted to say If I was on holiday I would have read it in one sitting It’s an AMAZING book and I kept saying to myself that’s just how I feel / think/believe.I kept coming to passages in the book that I wanted to read to many of my friends / family none of whom are vegan/veggie to ask them their thoughts as you put things in ways I wish I could have thought of.I run a vegan group in Norwich so will be offering the book round to anyone who would like to borrow it.The talk you did was one of the best I had been to in ages .with regards penny

    • Many thanks, Penny, for your very kind message. I’m travelling in the USA at present promoting Growl and involved with various animal rights activities. On my return, I would like to get back in touch with you. Cheers for now!
