About Us

Chequered Flag Publishing is an independent publisher dedicated to making available innovative and exciting sports books that are overlooked by other publishers.

Browse the sport shelves of your local bookshop and you'll see spine after spine of humdrum autobiographies of sport 'personalities'. These books, most of which are ghost written, purport to tell the life story of yet another footballer or cricketer, some of whom are barely out of their teens!

At Chequered Flag Publishing we want to break out of the restrictive mould that has been set by the commercial and financial brains in the offices of mainstream publishers. We want to tell the stories behind less well-known sports. We want to bring to life the characters behind the headlines. We want to inspire and excite, to make you stop and think.

Above all, we want to publish the kind of books that will take pride of place on your bookshelf.
