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.

The Minerva System



Part one of the Death to Bankers series.

Tom Mansell, City trader turned IT developer, has created Minerva, a world-leading electronic trading system. Its success attracts the wrong kind of attention and Mansell finds himself caught up in a battle for ownership, pitting an American Investment Bank against the sovereign wealth authority of the republic of Nashyastan, owner of the world’s largest non-OPEC oil reserves and the West’s new best friend in the darker side of The War Against Terror. Neither has a single scruple between them.

As the bitter struggle intensifies, the stakes are raised and coercion gives way to violence. Betrayed by those he trusts to protect him, Mansell faces a race against time to save all he holds dear from destruction.

In the City, no one cares if you scream…
