    Being the story of Brian, his Thai girlfriend Boom and their adventures in Thailand and England, told mostly through an exchange of letters between Brian’s doting mother and his loving aunt.
    Any resemblance to people living or dead is not at all coincidental.
    ‘Boom Boom Baby’ is a familiar story (middle-aged Englishman meets Pattaya bar girl), but told in an unusual fashion, almost exclusively through an exchange of letters between two elderly ladies. And the moral of the tale emerges just as Christmas approaches.
    ‘Boom Boom Baby’ is one of the funniest and most incisive books you will read on East-West relationships….I have re-read this book three times, and each reading of it provides even more laughs than before’-Lang Reid, Pattaya Mail

    It seemed a good idea at the time. The village chosen by Bob Andrews as a refuge from the chaos of Bangkok lay just off the north-south motorway. His partner Pan already ran the village store and noodle shop. Why not expand the business to include an English-style tea shop?
    But Bob hadn’t done his homework. Thai motorway travelers are in too much of a hurry to break their journey for a pot of tea and a plate of crumpets. And Thai villagers eat rice soup for breakfast, not bacon and eggs. Nevertheless, Bob did gain some profit from his failed enterprise, winning a rare insight into the life of a typical Thai village.
