I'm the author of more than forty travel guides for major publishers, and four novels - The J-Word (2009, 2011, 2018); The Slave (2013); Love (2015); and The Unknown Mrs Rosen (2020).

The Unknown Mrs Rosen, published 2020, is about a former spy at the end of a secret life about which her family and carers know nothing.

The J-Word, about an elderly man who seeks justice in his own way after being attacked by an antisemitic gang, was published in the UK in 2009 by Snowbooks, and came out in a Kindle edition in 2011. The rights returned to me in 2018, and a new edition was published. It was very well received in the UK, had excellent reviews in the British press, and was featured at London's Jewish Book Week and the Hampstead & Highgate Literary Festival. For more about The J-Word see

The Slave, about a young 'client' who tries to free a woman from forced prostitution, was published in 2013 at Smashwords as an ebook for multiple platforms, and is also available as a paperback.

Love, published 2015, is a story of heartbreak on the hippie trail, set in the heady atmosphere of the late Sixties.

“A family is good cover. You do love them, though; the emotions, at least, are real.” The Unknown Mrs Rosen tells the story of a spy, but this is no ordinary spy story. It's about secrecy, duty, identity, a family torn apart by caring for their mother in her final years, and the contrast between the helpless person Marjorie Rosen is becoming and the brilliant, heroic woman she used to be.
