Melinda Farrell A Late Addition To The Book

To see what the Lives & Times book for Beating Bowel Cancer is all about click here

I am really happy to reveal that Australian sports broadcaster and journalist Melinda Farrell has come on board the new book. Unfortunately the photo location won't be quite as glamorous as the Sydney Opera House with cricketing icons Brett Lee and Michael Vaughan, but the current plan is to meet up with Melinda before the Oval 5th Ashes Test in London. She is currently covering The Ashes for ESPN, and I asked her to be in the book, having heard her on BBC Test Match Special during the 3rd test at Edgebaston in Birmingham. 

Melinda recently made headlines during the England versus New Zealand series when she was hit by a cricket ball struck by New Zealand fast bowler Tim Southee at Lord's. Hopefully our meeting won't be quite so painful...

With the book now looking likely to be published on November 2nd, a new small window of opportunity has opened for a few last minute additions, so there may be one or two more to come...
