Sheep or Wolf?

“You will want to read this when prostate cancer’s threats come a-calling. Urologists say the cancer is coming for every man. This book carries a lot of weight of experience.”


About Me

For a Texan enjoying an amazing lifestyle working and living in Dorking, England, a market town just south of London, it was not the cold and wet of that fateful winter day back in December of 2014 that rattled me. It was the concerning lesion found on my prostate gland during a medical consultation. Suddenly, at 57 years old, otherwise healthy and active, my life’s path was forever changed.
I returned home to Austin, Texas USA to consult with my long-established urologist. He recommended surgery, straightaway. Despite the cancer, I followed my instincts to say no and returned to England in search of answers to my many questions. It took three years, many medical consultations, groundbreaking technologies and four treatments on two continents to get my cancer under control. Those experiences are recounted in my little book Prostate Cancer Sheep or Wolf? Navigating Systemic Misinformation.
Today, I find the disparities and misinformation surrounding this disease even more disturbing. Further driven than when I published my book, I am hosting and producing the Prostate Cancer Lessons podcast series. My guests are patients from across the US to Europe and down under. And along the way there will also be conversations with spouses and doctors. We will be discussing all that is involved in navigating this disease as patient detectives, patient scientists and strong self-advocates, sharing our respective experiences and what we have learned about screening, diagnosis, primary and secondary treatment selections and incurable metastatic prostate cancer. I welcome you to join us for these difficult yet heartwarming discussions.

About The Book

The book in numbers


Number of Pages

Prostate Cancer Sheep or Wolf? has been professionally edited and medically reviewed. I gave serious considerations to what would be included, and I did not want it to emulate a medical text book nor alter my experiences with the aid of a ghost or co-writer.

Scientific References

Quickly I realized the internet was both a resource and a nightmare—and that Doctor Google was not as helpful as one would hope. I have cited my most important sources and I hope you find them most helpful.

Note to the Reader
The information within this website and the book are about my medical journey. It is not intended as and should never be used as a substitute for professional medical advice or care, and should never be used for the diagnosis or treatment of any medical condition. Always consult with trained and licensed medical professionals before deciding on a course of action or inaction, or before making any changes in your current medical plan.

What the Editor Says,

"The approach in Sheep or Wolf is insightful and generous with a healthy dose of humor added to the topic of the serious illness of prostate cancer. The book communicates and establishes from page one the author’s voice of a strong and likable man who is in touch with his own emotions in the moments of crisis within the terrifying journey. I think this unique focus will help any reader facing similar circumstance. Readers who haven’t been confronted with a cancer diagnosis may discard the author's observations and experience. But at the same time, it will speak volumes to others who’ve had to face the medical establishment, the health insurance companies, the petty disputes, and the seemingly losing battle to find a healing balm."
