On a Lanzarote holiday in 2018, Julie and Martin Carrick, from the Yorkshire Dales, decided to change their lives.

First published on March 1st 2022 in the Gazette Life magazine.

Feeling overweight and unhealthy, they returned home and went for it – losing 7 and 5 stone respectively. After friends asked how they’d done it, they started writing down recipes and ended up publishing a book, which the Bookswop in Puerto del Carmen agreed to stock in February 2020.

We all know what happened next, and as a result of Covid promotion ground to a halt, but the couple used lockdown to write a further book of tasty recipes and lifestyle tips.

Ted at Bookswop has kindly agreed to stock both books. They are also available on Amazon should Ted run out of stock.
