Thank you for visiting my pages here. I’m a writer currently publishing via Amazon, my first novel – Mr Memory – is available to purchase now and I have two further books to be published this year, ‘Humphrey Pickleton And The Secret’ a childrens’ story and ‘The Bad Wife’ – a murder mystery come humorous fantasy fiction novel.
I’ve been writing for nearly 30 years but only now, thanks to modern technology and Amazon, have I been able to bring some of my work to you. I’ve written well over 40 short stories and 4 full length novels.
My work tends to live in that part of the universe where things are very similar to our reality, but with a tinge of the strange, an off kilter reflection, a mix of sour and sweet. This is not science fiction or horror but a fantasy fiction where things are not quite what they seem, animals can talk and sometimes the hero is not and the villain is, and just maybe there is a happy ending for some of the characters.
My favourite authors reflect my tastes and so on my book shelves you’ll find Tom Holt, Robert Rankin, Douglas Adams and Terry Pratchett fighting for shelf space with Bill Bryson. And yes you’ll also find a good splattering of Sci Fi – Asimov et al.
You will also find quite a few biographies of mainly musical heros of mine but the odd Norman Wisdom tome rubbing shoulders with Neil Young.
Most of the children’s books live in my boys’ rooms but you’ll find Harry Potter and lots of Roald Dahl! I’m also partial to lots of Charlie Bone (the wonderful Jennie Nemmo) and lots of traditional stuff too.
As well as writing I’m a song writer and play guitar and bass.
Ambition wise I’d love to give up the day job but for now I’m happy just to get my work out there.
There are quite a few pages where you can view more information including reviews of my work, buy my books etc:
