More About the Author

Nicholas Walker is a short, fat, ugly man who has a unique facility to go around upsetting people. On his world tour during 2001 it has been said that he offended more people in more countries than even Prince Philip had achieved.
He is a best selling author with twenty novels published mass market worldwide with a further dozen available on Kindle. He writes for both adults and children and has worked for the BBC as a freelance comedy writer. His two older children's books: Crackling Ice and Skating on the Edge, were best sellers in America and are still on the school syllabus in a number of states. Nick is a serious scientist and has written a number of easy-read scientific books including: Dieting is for Idiots, an expose of the dieting industry and Kicking the Crap Out of the Martial Arts.
Nick is a High School teacher of Science and a University professor of astrophysics and has taught in many countries around the world. He specialises in teaching in tough schools and has worked in Tower Hamlets in London and The Bronx in New York as well as a number of schools in Kuwait and Iraq.
He founded Kernow Karate thirty years ago and he built it up to be the most successful Martial Arts Organisation in Britain with clubs in Scotland, Essex, Devon and Cornwall...and indeed in California and The Middle East! Nick still teaches five nights a week when he is in the country.
In 2001, Nick was in America just in time (of course!) for the World Trade Center attacks, in fact he was flying home that day. As he couldn't get a flight back he sulked and stayed on in California for another five years as an illegal immigrant. He worked at Caltech for a time but then he managed a gym in Laguna Beach, down from LA, which had a number of Hollywood Stars as regular members. Nick became interested in the science of weight training and took the NASM (National Academy of Sports Medicine) degree and became a professional weight training instructor. He is now working on a book on the science of training: Exercise for Idiots.
When Nick's fourth marriage broke down he handled it in his traditional responsible manner and ran away from America receiving a ten year ban on his exit for overstaying his visa by four and a half years. He has never let this hinder him in any way and usually spends three months of every year in California.
Nick is a ballroom dancer, he says it is very like karate only more painful! He is the founder of Dancing in the Dark the ballroom dance club. This started in Iraq as an underground dance club (dancing in public is forbidden in most the Middle East) and he has also had clubs in Scotland and Cornwall. He regularly dances at Arthur Murray's when in America.
Nick has been jailed eighteen times mostly in The Middle East for his provocative articles published in journals such as The Sunday Express, Reader's Digest, Time and Playboy. But he has also spent the occasional night inside for running an illegal dance club. On jail, Nick says: a night in the cells is often an opportunity to take stock. It is a break from the normal humdrum effort of day to day living because it is the only time in your life when there is literally nothing to do!
Nick has been married five times: to two British Women and three American Women and has three children living in Britain: Jaime, Alex and Penny and eight adopted Iraqi children living in Kuwait. He has six degrees including a Masters and a PhD and is a Born Again Christian belonging to Calvary Chapel in Costa Mesa, California.
Nick is a proclaimed Americophile and glories in both the differences and similarities of Britain and America.
Nick is an activist against Capital Punishment which makes his less than popular in some parts of America and The Middle East.
His two favourite women in the world are Angelina Jolie and Natasha Raskin from Bargain Hunt.

Format: Paperback
I must have read this and "Ice Princess" the follow-up book at least 20 times in the past few years. Whether you're into skating or not, which in my case, I just like to watch, I'm sure you will love this book. It's a great story of determination and giving it everything you've got. The characters are unbelievable and the storyline is great! I can't wait to read them again! They're well worth buying!

I must have read this a thousand times between the ages of 10 and 12. Everything about it delighted me. I loved the reality and sharpness of the characters. I loved their friendship. It was comforting.

Format: Paperback
To make it short, the summery of the story was this: Samantha gets really sick even before the book happens which causes her to drop out of a high class dance boarding school. She comes to live back home with her parents who never want her to be part of any kind of spor again. While at her new highschool, she meets Alex, star hockey player. He also does pairs ice dancing, but he just ditched his dance partner, cause shes really bratty. Sam and Alex partner up and compete. Thats pretty much the basics of the story,but with all the details it was a really great book, both Alex and Sam have attitudes, which makes it even more fun.
