Meet the Author
I worked for 30 years in journalism and later pursued a career in acting. I've always loved writing, and have also scripted audio dramas for CD and written short film screenplays. My favourite genres in reading are an eclectic mix of historical dramas, thrillers, supernatural and mysteries.
My writing style is generally mystery/thriller linked with supernatural or strange events, which doesn't necessarily tie the stories to one specific genre. I look upon it as a bit like cooking, incorporating 'tastes' from the cuisine of other cultures - and hopefully adding an interesting new zest.
For many years my ambition was to write novels, and now that new phase in my life has begun. My grateful thanks to all who have bought and read my stories and to my reviewers, whose thoughts are a spur and a vitally important contribution to seeing how others see you.
I live in Buckinghamshire, UK with my wonderful wife Jenny. We have a son and daughter, and two amazing grandchildren.
