When out of condition divorced lorry driver, Ash Tomlinson, makes the spur of the moment decision to climb Kilimanjaro, he doesn’t consider how much it will change his life. There’s the training, the equipment to buy, the fear of altitude sickness, and of failure. And there’s Sean, a man who makes Ash question what he really wants for his future.
Sean Briggs is a school sports teacher and wishful mountain leader, longing for the chance to lead people on mountain hikes, but never having taken the plunge to do the training course. While he thinks about it, he decides to undertake the trip of a lifetime on Kilimanjaro.
The two men meet on a training weekend in Wales, and afterwards Ash goes home and tries to forget about Sean, but finds it impossible.
When the pair strike out for the summit of the highest mountain in Africa, their physical and mental strength is tested, and their growing feelings for each other help them push through the toughest moments of the trek.

About the Author
I come from a family of writers. My mother has a number of poems published in poetry anthologies, my aunt wrote poems for the church, and my grandmother sparked my inspiration with tales of fantasy. I first ventured into writing short stories at the grand old age of eight, mostly about little girls and ponies. I branched into romance in my teens, and MM romance a few years later, but none of my work saw the light of day until I discovered FanFiction in my late twenties. Posting stories based on some of my favorite movies, provoked a surprisingly positive response from readers. This gave me the confidence to submit some of my work to publishers, and made me take my writing “hobby” more seriously. I live in the UK, about an hour north of London, with a mad Dobermann, and a collection of tropical fish and tarantulas. I work in the insurance industry by day, and I spend every spare minute writing. I am a keen horse-rider, and I love to run long-distance. Some of my best writing inspiration comes to me when my feet are pounding the open road. I often race into the house afterward, and grab pen and paper to make notes. I have always been a bit of a tomboy, and one of my other great loves is cars and motorcycles. My car and bike are my pride and joy, and I love to exhibit the car at shows, and take off for long days out on the bike, with no one for company but myself.
