I always wanted to write books, since I first read The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe - tells you a lot about my age group - but never quite got round to it until later in life. I could blame parental pressure to get a job, a wife to do what needed to be done around the house, or the chidren for being so demanding. The truth is - a lack of confidence that I could write something people would want to read. Hey presto! My first book, The Milieu Principle, currently sits top of the pile on Kindle for downloaded political thrillers while my second, Milieu Dawn, sits third. Now there's something I didn't expect. The third of the trilogy, NSSM 2000, should be on kindle soon. I can only hope I haven't lost my touch already.
