Surrender: 40 Songs, One Story

As a massive U2 fan, I looked forward to listening to the audiobook every day! And the funny thing, Bono sometimes talks with the same tone of healthy sarcasm as me.

He speaks about U2’s history, love and respect for each other, and their fights and shaky times.

You’d assume Bono is a big church-goer… NO, he’s actually not. At one point I felt like applauding when he said something I’ve always thought too. Although, he does quote scriptures frequently throughout Surrender, but not in a preachy way. He also does some great impressions of the likes of politicians and other important people of this generation which makes listening to the audiobook even more enjoyable.

This is a must-read for any U2 fan, or even any music fan!…/9781473577404.html…

I'm an Australian author and music journalist from Melbourne. I've had articles and poetry published in several magazines and newspapers since finishing my Diploma in Professional Writing and Editing in 2001. In 2010 Gigs 'n Interviews was born. I launched it with my first big named interview and that was Vanessa Amorosi and then in 2012 I felt unbelievably privileged to interview Ronan Keating. I'm extremely proud of what Gigs 'n Interviews has become as it's seen as a platform for emerging artists and entertainers to be heard.

Looking forward to writing more children's books, I hope to change the wrong perception of children and adults with disabilities as I was born with Severe Cerebral Palsy (like Christy Brown who wrote My Left Foot). People can view my books at
