Stories Inspire. And that’s why I like telling them. So as well as sharing them in person through my speaking engagements I also like to write and make films about my adventures.


My first book One Step Beyond tells the story of my original 7 in 7 Challenge and was published by Penguin in 2013. Signed copies can be bought online here. Here’s what two well-known endurance athletes and authors in their own right had to say about it:

Steve Gurney: “Read this book if you want to be inspired”

Dean Karnazes: “Mal dealt with loss and adversity, yet he overcame them in an extraordinary way. In taking One Step Beyond he proves that while the human body may have its limitations, the human spirit is truly boundless.”
