About Me

I live with my wife and daughter in North Hampshire. I self-published The Rage in November 2015 and recently completed my second book, Decimation: The Girl Who Survived. My third book is now underway, provisionally titled The Colour of the Soul.

I was fortunate enough to have one of my short stories, A Christmas Killing, published in Dark Minds, a charity anthology by Bloodhound Books. All proceeds go to Sophie's Appeal and Hospice UK, two very worthy charities.

I have a writing blog at and can be found on Facebook and Twitter. I am always keen to meet fellow authors, so please do get in touch!
