It's strange what you eventually come up with when you write for other people: some elements of your own experience emerge as well as fresh, new stories that seem to come from nowhere. This has been my experience since I began to write for pleasure. I initially used my professional and personal life to produce Deepwater, the Litigation Junkie and Diary of a Novice Market Organiser but also found a stream of fantasy that became the Archie the Royal Hot Water Bottle series. I continue to find the creative writing process interesting as I work on a new novel and hope you enjoy the results so far.

What a surprise - one of those books that sneaks up on you.
It starts as engaging entertainment and then adds character, depth and intrigue. It sparkles with plot adventures and fantasy twists, bringing to life two unlikely members of the royal retinue and their co-conspirators.
'Archie' is heartwarming, comic and at times harrowing, but like all good adventures it drew me into its world and had me wanting more.
Simply put, this book is very readable and full of fun, with a keen eye to the delights of human nature and imagination.
