Journalist Tony Flood's celebrity book 'My Life with the Stars - Best, Ali and the Panties' is packed with revelations and amusing anecdotes about a galaxy of show business and sports stars he has interviewed during his career.
Flood reveals the secrets of Elvis Presley, George Best, Frank Sinatra, The Beatles, Britt Ekland, Muhammad Ali, The Beatles, Joan Collins, Peter Sellers and a host of others. Former Sky Television executive Tony says: “I tell how Sinatra switched from Mr Charming to Mr Nasty, how Elvis became an embarrassment and how Dudley Moore was humiliated by Barbra Streisand.
“Meeting George Best and Muhammad Ali brought me into contact with two glamorous ladies who were offering to have sex with them! One was so desperate that she gave me her G-string, tied around her room key, to pass on to Best.
“During my time as Controller of Information at Sky TV, I was rubbing shoulders with a load of big name sports stars and had to overcome problems when dealing with snooker ace Jimmy White and football manager Ron Atkinson.
“I also reveal what it was like to be Bobby Moore's boss at the notorious Sunday Sport.” As Daily Mail writer Sami Mokbel says: “WOW! So many of the stars' secrets now come out!” My Life With The Stars has also been recommended by many big name stars. Flood's journalistic missions saw him take dancing lessons from Strictly's delightful Erin Boag, perform as a stand-up comedian, and play football with George Best and Bobby Moore.
The most emotional story Flood ever wrote was when he obtained an exclusive interview with Liverpool goalkeeper Bruce Grobelaar the day after the Hillsborough disaster, the deadliest stadium-related tragedy in British history.
Tony Flood has spent most of his working life as a sports and leisure journalist on various national and regional papers.
Tony, formerly Controller of Information at Sky Television, Editor of Football Monthly magazine and Sports Editor of the Lancashire Evening Telegraph Series, retired as a journalist when he left national Sunday newspaper The People in 2010 and has since become an author.
His first book was a fantasy adventure called The Secret Potion, which was strongly recommended by actress June Whitfield and hailed as an ideal follow up to Harry Potter by author Jessica Duchen.
The Secret Potion is suitable for both children and adults, and further details - including how to obtain signed copies - are available on www.fantasyadventurebooks.com
More recently, he has written 'tell all' celebrity book My Life With The Stars – Best, Ali and the Panties, featuring stories and anecdotes about the many big names he has interviewed from the worlds of show business and sport, followed by Triple Tease, a spicy crime thriller recommended by best selling authors Peter James and Tamara McKinley, actor Brian Capron and the SUN Newspaper's Stuart Pink.

Tony still plays football for a veterans club and edits books and writes theatre reviews for the Brighton Argus. In addition, he finds time to encourage other writers as President of Anderida Writers of Eastbourne.
His work as a leisure writer, critic and sports editor for the Richmond and Twickenham Times and Kentish Times Series saw him take on a variety of challenges – learning to dance with Strictly Come Dancing star Erin Boag, becoming a stand-up comedian and playing football with the late George Best and Bobby Moore.
Tony has interviewed some of the biggest names in entertainment and in the sporting world – including Muhammad Ali, Linda Gray, Britt Ekland, Frankie Howerd, Patsy Kensit, Petula Clark, Kate O'Mara, Joe Pasquale, Seb Coe, Sir Alex Ferguson, Sir Bobby Charlton, Sir Bobby Robson and top comedy writers Galton and Simpson. He was Bobby Moore's boss at the controversial Sunday Sport and got to play in charity matches with England's World Cup winning captain for a Sunday Sport All Stars XI.
Tony also interviewed a host of footballing icons when he was editor of Football Monthly, Britain's oldest soccer magazine. In addition to editing other authors' work, ranging from amusing tales by Joan Cassie about her Giddy Aunt, (find it at Giddy Limits), to an autobiography by a Jewish war survivor entitled THE NAZIS - THROUGH THE EYES OF A CHILD, Tony also helps authors to get their work fast tracked in his role as New Authors Co-ordinator at My Voice Publishing.
