Writers Inspiring Change feature book: Pieman: The Papa D Story

Pieman - The Papa D Story is the story of one man's journey to self during a special time in his life. A time that fell into place when he learned to let go and trust his intuition.

It is also a business adventure towards the end of his working life, with plenty of obstacles to overcome. It might have never been a success if he hadn't opened his mind and accepted that things can go ‘right’ sometimes.

It was a time when he let the magic happen and found himself on a journey searching for the secret to life through comfort foods.


"Follow an interesting journey of one man's dream of life's true meaning. The discovery of self and his final destination of worth." - JR

" Felt like sitting around a fire with family listening to tales from the past. For anyone who never got to try Papa D's did you miss out! They truly are the best tasting pies!" - M
