One of the oldest jockeys still riding. Noel aka Handbreak Harry is the Keith Richards of the racing world. Talks of drugs, gambling and race fixing. His father is also a well known figure in the racing world. Bursting to prominence in the 1980s, Noel may 'smoke like a chimney, drink like a fish and eat like a sparrow' but he rides like a true champion. And he has outlasted many of his competitors, still leading them home in his late fifties after having notched up over 2000 wins. Along the way he has gained the loyalty of owners and trainers, the respect of fellow jockeys and the admiration of race-goers. He has also had a few beers, a bit of fun and lots of laughs, enjoying life and loving racing. Colourful - including green hair on occasions - and sometimes outlandish, Noel has stood out for his singular riding style, his optimism, commitment, sense of humour and straight-shooting sincerity. Racing is a game of wins and losses, highs and lows, and in this book, Noel takes us on the rollercoaster, from growing up in a racing family and apprenticeship days in a wild and scary Singapore, the rides and races of the NZ and Australian racing calendars, and the trials, tribulations and triumphs of staying at the top. Noel gives us the goods on the horses, owners, trainers, jockeys, races and officials, friends and family - the emotions, experiences, anecdotes and accolades of a long and successful career.

The true story of Ray Essery, one of the NSW Northern Rivers' most unique characters, as told to former Tamworth journalist Anna Rose*. Ray's been a larrikin of a kid who left school at 14, was the son of a dairy farmer and went on to own three farms throughout his life. With a sadly-lacking education, Ray went on to become one of the youngest petty officers in the Royal Australian Navy. He¿s had more thrills and spills in Australian harness racing than most, driving trotters on tracks in NSW and Queensland ¿ once with near-fatal consequences. In the early 1990s just as his dairy farming days were winding up, he began another career ¿ and is now regarded as one of Australia's most respected bush poets. This is the story of Ray's life, heartache and humour, interspersed with quite a bit of history of the Northern Rivers dairy industry and harness racing in the district. The tale is punctuated with poetry, both Ray's own works and selected pieces from revered Australian poets. He doesn¿t hold back when describing painful events ¿ the loss of a child, the death of mates in one of Australia¿s worst naval disasters. He tells it like it is, with tears, with honesty, empathy and reverence. Then the larrikin kicks in and there¿s a funny yarn to relate. He¿s quite a surprise package, Mr Ray Essery. So much more than meets the eye. So how did a dyslexic kid from the bush end up as one of Australia¿s most sought-after bush poets? You¿ll just have to read all about it ¿ but be warned. It is quite a ride. So buckle up, hold on and enjoy it! *Anna Rose has 30 years¿ experience writing in regional newspapers and national magazines such as The Northern Daily Leader, Tamworth, and Australian Country Music Capital News. Leaving Tamworth with three small dogs in her motorhome last year, Anna had no idea her travels would land her in the book publishing world. This is the first in a series of biographies Anna plans to release.

Full of wisdom and honesty, Not Quite an Ordinary Life shares the rather extraordinary life of J. David Joyce, a common man who took the common man's journey through life. One of eight children born to an Irish Catholic housepainter and his wife, Joyce grew up in the midst of poverty in a small New York town. In his youth, he endured (and survived) Catholic school, dealt with his father's addiction to morphine, and learned the importance of hard work. As an adult, he served a tour of duty in Vietnam, suffered through financial difficulties, and mourned the death of his only son. Yet through it all, Joyce continued to believe in a better life for himself and his family. His middle class success included a solid marriage, wonderful children, advanced education, and worldwide travel. He enjoyed a twenty-year career in the US Air Force working in foreign intelligence collection and analysis, as well as being a counselor to veterans. In later years, he became an IRS agent and finished his working life as an accountant. Rich with detail and brimming with emotion, Not Quite an Ordinary Life reveals one man's strength and courage against the odds and his remarkable zest in pursuing the American dream.
