The suspense is over !

“Where Have I Been All My Life?”
is the winning title in the contest to name my forthcoming  memoir.
The title, submitted by Graydon Feinstein, a college student from Studio City, Calif. leapt out at me from the hundreds suggested by fans from literally around the world.
Indeed, “Where Have I been All My Life?” is a question I’ve asked myself countless times over the years, but when it came time to name my autobiography, it didn’t spring to mind.  Thank you, Graydon, for offering what I hope will be an intriguing title attached to a bestseller !
Graydon, a fan of “Randall & Hopkirk (Deceased)”, “The Saint”, and in particular “The Prisoner” will receive an autographed photo of his choice (to add to his growing collection of 60’s series stills) and a personally inscribed copy of “Where Have I Been All My Life” upon publication.
I want to thank all of you who took the time & effort to help me name my book.  So many of the suggested titles were creative and off-the-wall that I had quite a few sleepless nights selecting just one.
And I want to thank Alex Lewczuk, Siren Radio host, for helping to bring the contest to a much wider audience than I could’ve hoped for.
Please keep tuned to these billboards for news of the publication date for the book.
I value your interest & comments.
All best wishes,

A title for my book

At long last!  I’ll be announcing the winner of the contest to name my autobiography on Midweek Drive hosted by Alex Lewczuk this Wednesday, 30th Jan. at 6.05pm UK time.  Tune in live on or download the broadcast .

I received hundreds  of entries from around the world, many of them truly intriguing, clever & off-the-wall imaginative.  Picking the winner gave me too many sleepless nights – but- select one I did & I couldn’t be happier !  I hope you’ll agree that the winning title has all the ingredients of a best seller! (At least I hope so !)

So please let me hear from you & let me know what you think of my choice.  The book will be coming out sometime this year (no firm date set yet).  I’ll make sure you’ll be alerted well in advance.

Also on the show Alex & I will talk about the launch of an exciting auction to be held in aid of Alexandra Bastedo’s  ‘Champions  Animal  Sanctuary.’   Alexandra, a friend & star of the 60’s TV series “The Champions” is facing crushing vet bills and is in great need of help from all who love animals.

Please listen to the broadcast for details of the auction and watch this space for news of how you can participate and come away with a truly unique TV memorabilia.
