Book:
My National Service – the Making of a Man
As I worked with Brian on this book he told me that he could remember his time of National Service like it was yesterday, but ask him to tell what he did earlier in the week and it would be more difficult! Brian shares his memoirs of being a young man who joined the British Army as an Infantry Soldier and served two years in the conscripted National Service.  It is a personal story, giving detailed descriptions of everyday Army life, including a spell of 'Jankers' and journeying over 28,000 miles to far off places including the Far East.  It will likely bring back many fond memories for National Servicemen from the 1950s. During his time in the second Battalion, Essex Regiment, Brian experienced life on troopships, H.M Diwara and H.M Empire Fowey. This book contains over 40 original photographs and is a 'must read' for those fascinated by recent military and social history.

Fag Hags, Divas and Moms: The Legacy of Straight Women in the AIDS Community
Victoria gives us the first book to share the stories of women around the world, throughout the HIV/AIDS epidemic. For almost forty years, straight women have been affected by HIV/AIDS. They have fought for the right to be included in clinical trials and qualify for disability benefits. They have raised money and awareness. But until now, their stories have been ignored or forgotten, even in accounts of women’s history. Victoria draws on personal interviews and archival research. Some of the names are familiar; such as Elizabeth Taylor and Princess Diana, most are not. But all have left a lasting impact on the fight against a virus that has killed over 40 million people around the world, half of them women.
I had the pleasure of working with Ladey on the interior design of my book.  It was a book with over two dozen photographs, but most challenging, one with an extensive index that she created. Ladey is both easy to work with and a real professional. I would use her again without hesitation and endorse her enthusiastically!

Unfrozen: How to Melt Your Heart from Life’s Disappointment, Disillusionment and Discouragement by Opening the Door and Stepping into God’s Warming Light (Available as an Audio book)

Unfrozen

Interview on World Trans Radio by James Maidment-Fullard

Unfrozen

Reading by Ted Banks

This was my first book and written from a place of angst but inspired by Disney's film Frozen – it weaves case studies and personal memoirs as I look at subjects that affect our attitude to life. Covering Fear of the Past, Hope, Plans, Betrayal, Healing Protection, Fear, Love, Sacrifice, Searching, Creation and Reunion. There were times that I felt that Holy Spirit was sitting on my shoulder telling me what to write, and waking me up early in the morning so I would do the writing! The book looks to reverse the effects of being Frozen because of Life's disappointment, disillusionment or discouragement. This book in so many ways is autobiographical. It is however full of breathed, learned and revealed wisdom, truth and compassion. It faces 'the journey' that moves us to a place called 'forward'. Not by ignoring, disregarding or by living in denial to the key issues. But by being real, open, vulnerable and intentionally detrained to be transformed by unconditional love. It's not written out of some form of post-modern optimistic psychology but it's a bout 'the truth that sets you free'. Unfrozen indeed. Rev Canon Chris Bowater, Order of St. Leonard, Pastor, Teacher, Author, Songwriter, Founder of Worship Academy International.

Colours of Unfrozen: Reflecting, Relaxing and Rejoicing: A Believer’s Colouring Book for Adults
Colours of Unfrozen (UK) Do you like Colouring Books? This is a Christian version with Reflections next to the colouring page. Using the same Chapters as Unfrozen, there are over 140 intricate drawings to caller and 70 devotionals. As a Bonus there is a hidden psalm in each picture to find. Mediate and pray as you colour – and draw nearer to God.
Colours of Unfrozen captures the restorative power of God to heal believers of all ages who have been hurt along life's journey. Sue Detweiler. Author, Radio Host and Pastor.
Colors of Unfrozen (USA) This is the same Coloring book as above except the text is the American spelling – so color instead of colour and just a couple of images changed to reflect America rather than Great Britain. As this book was launched in the USA at the AAE Conference we felt it was important to have two copies to choose from. It was the first collaboration between Ladey and Abbirose.
We enjoyed the experience of working together so much, we went on to write a book about Colouring and then the Little Unicorn Series. Ladey Adey and Abbirose Adey

Finding Treasure
Finding Treasure is equated with becoming rich and famous, a prevalent ambition in our culture. This view is contrary to the way God views 'treasure'. His ways are hight and altogether better than ours. This book is about how God has lead Margaret each step of the way  using her stitched pictures. A colourful book with plates throughout of the stitched pictures which Margaret has made and her story of God working in her life.
To me, this is a beautiful work. It is both a personal testimony and a unique and effective way of encouraging others in their walk with God. Dr Clifford Denton, Founder Tishrei Bible School and Chairman of Prophecy Today.

Miley’s Mind
Miley was a smiley dog, or so everyone thought. But, Miley had a secret - her mind was poorly. She didn't want anyone to know. Then one day she did the bravest thing! Miley's Mind introduces the concept of mental health in a child-friendly way. It highlights how abuse, bullying and grief impacts emotional well-being, and encourages children to talk about their feelings. "... a powerful tool for anyone interested in supporting children's mental health and well-being. " - Dr Rachel Wicaksono, Head of the School of Education, Language and Psychology, York St. John University "Having seen first-hand the effects of a global pandemic, the unease of social isolation and the receding of childhood in these neoteric times, the themes and lessons covered in this book come at a critical time. We need to start talking about mental health and earlier." - Dr Michael McArdle - Paediatric Accident and Emergency Doctor, Leeds Teaching Hospitals “A wonderful book that deals with the subject of children’s mental health in a sensitive, but powerful way." - Tony Staneff, Director of Learning, Trinity Multi Academy Trust "Katie Goodacre generates high levels of enthusiasm, participation and commitment to child progression and I’ve no doubt that Miley’s Mind will be really helpful to children’s mental health development." - Richard Holmes, Chief Executive Officer, The Kings Active Foundation “Miley’s Mind introduces what is often seen as a difficult and uncomfortable topic to young readers, and is carefully explored with calmness and sensitivity." - Matthew Marshall, Student Teacher, York St John
