About Me

My photo

 Welcome to my blog cum website thingy. It's about all things related to fiction writing, however tenuous the connection. Here's a brief biog:

After doing an economics degree at Southampton University, I spent sixteen years in the Royal Air Force actually getting paid to have fun by flying aeroplanes. Since then I've worked in wholesale financial services and am now based in the UAE. I also provide consultancy and software development services to a small group of global financial institutions and am lucky enough to be a regular speaker on the international conference circuit.

I've always had a passion for history, languages and archaeology. These elements came together to create Flora Kemble, Oxford University palaeographer and heroine of my first novel, The Seven Stars, a thriller that weaves a tale of deception and murder stretching from ancient Rome to the present day.

My second book, The Manhattan Deception, is now available on Kindle and in paperback.

My third book, The Minerva System is available on Kindle and in paperback.

Book number four, Death to Bankers, has just been released on Kindle and the paperback, from Mauve Square Publishing, will be out soon.

My latest book is a ghost story, set in the misty fens of Lincolnshire. It's called Bomber Boys and has a very big twist in the tale!

I'm a member of the Chartered Institute of Linguists and split my time between work in Abu Dhabi and a far more relaxing time with my wife, Wendy - who's also published by Mauve Square Publishing - with our two cats at home in south-west France.

New Book on the Way (so's Christmas...)

"Work is the curse of the writing classes," as Karl, the unfunny Marx Brother, probably never said.

Happenstance and a big blue aeroplane have conspired together to find me working in Abu Dhabi, hence the infrequence of posts on what was already a fairly thinly populated blog. That said, I'm just coming to the end of a wonderful 2-week holiday at our home in France and have managed to make good progress on my ghost story, Bomber Boys, which is set around a disused airfield in Lincolnshire. All being well, I hope to have finished it before too long.

As I'd hoped, The Manhattan Deception is selling steadily in the USA, so all I need now is to reach a point where it starts to go viral on the interweb. Sadly, until it does, it's back to the day job as toad under the harrow in residence.
