George Mahood is an award-winning writer. Specifically, he was placed third in the Little Brington Village Fete's limerick competition (Under 10s category) in 1988. It was the same year that Mrs Marriott's legendary fruit loaf was beaten in the WI cake contest for the first time in six years.

George studied Communication Studies and English Literature at Leeds University. After spending a year travelling in the USA (with clothes and money), he worked for several years in a variety of jobs including charity fund-raising and garlic bread making. He currently works as a photographer, specialising in weddings. George has been the lead singer and guitarist of a rubbish band and the chairman and midfielder of an awful Sunday-league football team.

Hi Andrea,

Wow, this is the first time I've heard of Operation Ironman being discussed at a book club. Thank you! I'd love to hear what the consensus is.

Questions.. hmm... it's quite difficult to think of questions about my own book.

How about....

If you were George's wife, how would you have felt about him signing up for an Ironman so soon after surgery?

Did you feel that there was too much technical (boring) stuff in the book?

Are there any moments in the book that stand out as being your favourite/the funniest?

Did the book inspire you to set your own physical challenge?

I hope those help.

Thanks again,
George(less)

Travels with Rachel by George Mahood
"What? It's over already?

I'd just finished the first chapter of a Bill Bryson book and was checking Facebook from the comfort of my toil-------I mean reading chair. There was a post from George Mahood. "Oh, he's been quiet I wonder what he's been u..." Read more of this review »

Travels with Rachel by George Mahood
"Simply love George Mahood's books. I read a lot of travel books and for the most part, they are dire. If the blurb says "hilarious", it means they're full of very heavy handed jokes. Like his other books, which I can't recommend too highly, this o..." Read more of this review »
