I write contemporary fiction about relationships, using a mix of humour and pathos to describe the tragi-comic life journeys of my characters. My latest novel, Then and now, is my seventh, following on from The Engagement Party, Jack and Jill Went downhill, Mid-life follies, The bench by Cromer beach, Nothing Man and Dream Café. If you click on Books you can read an extract from each novel.
I'm a member of Cambridge Writers and a rare male member of the Romantic Novelists’ Association. Readers tell me that my male perspective on relationships provides a refreshingly original viewpoint.
I have opted to be an independent author having in the past been published by Lume Books and Headline Accent.
Ahead of writing full time, I led a national educational charity, publishing in a range of newspapers and magazines, and I am the co-author of a major work on educating able post-16 students. Although I enjoy covering educational issues, writing fiction has always been my passion.
In addition to writing and reading, I enjoy playing tennis, watching films, especially film noir, supporting my partner's glass art business - and I have a minor addiction to dried mango slices.
I live in Cambridge, UK.
