I've been a multi-genre author since 1991.
My favourite work to date is 2019's “Tow Away Zone”, a quirky small-town comedy drama, set in modern day Arizona. It has shades of the Coen Brothers’ film canon, and the black comedy Grosse Pointe Blank.
It’s been well-received by readers, with 5* reviews on Amazon.
In 2020 I published the sequel – “Go Away Zone” - which take the characters into a romcom caper with more love and livelihoods at stake. In 2021 I'm hoping to complete the trilogy.
My sci-fi journey started with space opera “Scared Ground” being available on Kindle in 2012.
It explores the deliberate, and accidental, casualties of a long interstellar war. It’s about uncertainty, faith, and the consequences of actions.
In 2018 I self-published my 2nd sci-fi novel – “Imperfect Isolation - which embraces robotics, asteroid mining and a snowy drive in an 80-year-old Porsche. It's a wild ride for my wisecracking heroine Enna.
The sequel, “Reprisals”, followed in 2019. This takes the heroes of the first book, and the consequences of their actions, and dials up the stakes for their survival.
In early 2021 I released the 3rd instalment, “Trip Hazard”.
I'm currently editing a reflective Western, which was developed from my 2005 screenplay script. It explores prejudice against the deaf community and the Native Americans, as a man struggles to reconnect with his lost son and come to terms with his own failings.
I've written a collection of offbeat humorous stories and vignettes in the style of early Woody Allen prose - a real inspiration for me. “The Real Jamie Oliver and Other Stories” is basically a window into my nonsensical side.
In 2021 I rediscovered short story writing and have released a variety of stories – most free to read – in genres of comedy, romance and drama.
I also write pantomime & stage drama scripts. I’ve had 8 works performed and reached a total audience of over 5000 to date.
