I'm a writer living in the Peak District of Derbyshire, England. In a past life I was a commercial scriptwriter and film-maker. I'm still fond of film, but love writing.
I hope that readers will download my short ebooks and get a taste of how I write, and if it's to your liking let me know. If it isn't then you can also tell me - all feedback is good feedback. Subscribe to my blog and get advance notification of new short stories or novels. I will also be posting stuff that I find interesting or quirky.

The Hall came into sight; not a light showed. It stood black and massive against the sky, blacker than the night, a mouth of darkness waiting to suck in the innocent.
Charlie Chelford, hotshot New York photojournalist, is tasked with an unwelcome assignment to photograph billionaire businessman, Sir Marcus Tilling, in England. She has no inkling of the ancient terrors that are rushing to meet her and will change her life, forever.
Fresh from London’s Wormwood Scrubs prison, penniless ex paratrooper Tom Buchanan struggles against the odds to keep on the straight and narrow. He finds a job as a security guard. But there is no security for Tom as he uncovers the mystery of his lost childhood and faces the ultimate test against a supernatural entity that seems to have limitless power.
In an East Harlem cell, gang member and killer Angel Diaz feels the desperate need to escape. He needs a miracle, but then he does have divine help.
Ex-fashion model Elyssia Jordan, locked in an Ashbourne mental asylum, finds an unconventional way to get out… and get home.
And, eyes full of the moon, a huge, black dog dreams of the song, dreams of death.
Deep in the wilds of Derbyshire, England, mediaeval manor house Hearthstone Hall draws them to its cold stones - the boy, the girl, the dark man and the others. They will have no choice, for they will all hear the song and the hunger will be assuaged.
Lost to the gaze of God, Hearthstone waits.
Waits for the guests.
Waits for the children.

It's quite a fat book. With lots of pages. Think Dan Brown meets Stephen King in a Celtic village with several fly-by-wire Tornado aircraft and a dead Viking berserker, coupled with a timeless romance and unspeakable evil...then forget the bit about Dan Brown and Stephen King and buy the book, which I hope you will find well worth it.
