About me

Thanks for wanting to find out about me.

I’m published by Lume Books and Headline Accent and am the author of four novels: A Street Café Named Desire, The Engagement Party, Jack and Jill Went Downhill, Mid-life follies and The bench by Cromer beach

I use humour to describe past, present and sought-after relationships, with my characters struggling to balance the pressures of work, friends and families as they seek romance. I’m a rare male member of the UK Romantic Novelists’ Association and am told that the male perspective on relationships provides a refreshingly original viewpoint.

Ahead of writing full time, I led a national educational charity. I’ve published in a wide range of educational journals, national newspapers and magazines and am the co-author of a major work on educating able young people. Although I enjoyed covering education, writing fiction has always been my passion. 

I live in Cambridge and am a member of Cambridge Writers. I enjoy playing tennis, watching films, especially film noir, supporting my partner's mosaic and glass art business - and I have a minor addiction to dried mango slices.
