I wanted to write from a very young age, and fiction was always the aim. But non-fiction came first: articles, and my first technical work, were published before I left school.
I began work in research and development in the field of semiconductor research, where I developed a keen interest in technology. I then became a chartered engineer and designed electronic equipment for the disabled. The next step was to combine my interests by becoming a technical author and then a technical publications manager: a role I had for many years. During this part of my career I published a number of technical books under a different name. After that, I finally got around to publishing fiction.
My debut novel, a psychological thriller called ‘Sandman’, was published in 2010, followed by my non-fiction work ‘Reality Check: Science Meets Religion’, in 2011. The latter stemmed from a desire to ratify apparent differences between science and religion. Then back to contemporary fiction, with 'Flying a Kite' in 2013, using underlying ideas connected with man's desire to know the so-called "meaning of life" - but with a thriller twist! My latest novel, a mystery thriller called 'The Grave Concerns of Jennifer Lloyd', was published in 2016.
