I’ve written four books on beer, the latest being The Hopfather a biography of the legendary godfather of New Zealand brewing, Richard Emerson. There’s also two editions of Beer Nation – the Art & Heart of Kiwi Beer, and The Big Book of Home Brew – a Kiwi Guide. I have also ghost written golf caddie Steve Williams’ autobiography Out of the Rough and written a biography of golf star Lydia Ko. There’s a hard-to-find coffee table book called Country Courses, an ode to 18 of New Zealand’s most scenic and remote golf tracks.
