ITV 1 The Chase’s Shaun Wallace, aka The Dark Destroyer and Legal Eagle, signs book deal with Cranthorpe Millner Publishers for his autobiography, Chasing the Dream.
London, UK, 15th March 2018: Well-known Chaser Shaun Wallace, continues to chase the dream and signs a book deal with independent publishers London based Cranthorpe Millner. His autobiography is the result of many years of hard work and determination and will be an inspiration to anyone who has known the pain and hardship of trying to make it in a world filled with people who seem to be against you. On the 5th December 2004, Shaun became the first black person to win the BBC television quiz show Mastermind, and since then his career has catapulted and he is now a household name, appearing on ITV’s smash hit teatime quiz show The Chase as The Dark Destroyer.
However, quizzing is but a small part of what makes up Shaun. He has been a devoted Chelsea fan since 1967 and a criminal defence advocate for over thirty-two years. Read how Shaun’s passions have helped turn him into the man he is today: staunchly just and fair, ruthless when he needs to be, kind, fun, and a fiercely loyal friend.
Kirsty-Ellen Smillie, Chief Executive Officer, Cranthorpe Millner Publishers, commented: “we are thrilled Shaun chose to work with us, as we know he had many offers! He made the right choice and we can’t wait to get this book out to the public and on the shelves as soon as possible, as we do think his book is going to speak to so many people.”
Shaun Wallace commented: “I am so excited to start this journey with Cranthorpe Millner. Every day my friends and my fans ask me when my book might be available to buy and now the wait is nearly over.”
