About Me

 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.

Bomber Boys

Although I finished the first draft of Bomber Boys in January, it's taken me until May to finish editing it. Now at last it's available on Kindle (via Mauve Square Publishing) with the paperback to follow.

Hope you enjoy it!

Bomber Boys - a Ghost Story





Bill Price, journalist and former RAF officer suffers devastating head injuries in a car crash, causing him to experience vivid hallucinations. So when he sees signal flares and shadowy figures while out walking on the disused airfield at Leckonby in Lincolnshire, he believes them to be a product of his own mind.

The airfield is to be developed for housing, but work is disrupted by what appears to be paranormal activity. Ghostly airmen are seen and lights appear in the ruined control tower.

Bill investigates the story for his newspaper and despite his logic telling him that such things cannot happen, events take a nightmarish turn when he finds himself caught up in the life of a Bomber Command squadron in 1944.

In a cruel twist of fate, he realises that not only is the past haunting him, but he is haunting the past, and so begins his desperate struggle to return to the safety of the present day.
