I live in the South of France with my wife. After studying at the University of East Anglia I worked as a teacher, trainer and company director.
A strangely serious accident (I claim it was caused by cage-fighting but I actually slipped over) shattered my arm and meant that I had to rein back my work. I decided to concentrate on writing and am now writing full-time. I write a wide range of fiction. My main interests are historical fiction, short stories and fiction for young adults.
I have a series of novels set in the years following the Norman Invasion of England. The first novel: The Lost King: Resistance is available now on Kindle. The Lost King: Wasteland, the second novel in the series, will be available shortly. My collections of short stories, Pick and Mix and Nuggets are also available.
I am currently working on a novel set in Jerusalem in the twelfth century and Artful, the further adventures of Jack Dawkins. Both will be published in 2012.
My work has been broadcast on radio. I won first prize in the Kenneth Grahame Society competition to write a story based on ‘The Wind in the Willows.’ You can get the collection, ‘The Wind in the Willows Short Stories’ from Amazon.
