Writing since I could hold a pencil, I've always been fascinated by words and their power to entertain, transform, educate, illuminate, and influence. Stories are fundamental to human beings; they form an essential part of our psyche. It's an honour to be privileged to tell my own versions of tales that have abounded for millennia.
Born in Hull, England, in 1948, I had my first writing published as illustrated articles for the British photographic press at age 19. I stilll take photographs in a semi-professional capacity. I have 8 published novels, a science fiction novella, a self-help guide to ME/CFS, and several anthologies. My fiction started with a radio play, Hitch Hiker, broadcast by BBC Radio 4 in the 1970s. My short stories have been published and have been prizewinners in competitions.
I'm married to a charming, intelligent and lovely lady who proof-reads my work. We have a daughter who, at the time of writing, is working in Australia.
