I was born in Cheadle Hulme, Cheshire in 1953. I was a former Moseley Hall Grammar School boy who hated school but loved sport! I began writing in 1971 when I worked as a clerk at the CWS in Manchester where, out of boredom, I made up stories about the supervisors in the office. They were rude but ridiculously funny!! My first novel was "The Crowman Cometh" was published by Minerva Press in 1999. This publisher went in liquidation in 2001 leaving me without a publisher until 2010 when Pneuma Springs offered me a contract for the first Inspector Doyle Daly book. I recently managed to buy a copy of 'The Crowman Cometh' on the net for around 35 pounds. I have finished rewriting this book as "Albert and the Crows" and it is now available in two parts. I have now finished the third Inspector Doyle Daly book, "The Circle." The fourth book "The Ballymun Boys" is now part written and should be ready around sept/oct.
Another project I have just completed is a Second World War thriller called "The Last True Aryan."
I am 58 years old and I live in Hertfordshire.
If you have read any of my work please go to reviews and leave your opinion of my book, it is so important to any writer to receive some feedback.
My other passion is writing song lyrics, I have hundreds of songs in an extensive back catalogue so if you are looking to find the right words for your music you can contact me on
