Biography

To date I have completed two novels called Roseview and The Invisible Alroy which are available to buy on Smashwords. Quickie and Who Killed Martha Mansfield? are short story collections. There more short stories available to read for free on my website deskirby.com. I write fictional stories but my characters are usually inspired by real life people and scenarios. I’m happy to self-publish but I'd be happier to have a literary agent on my side. Feel free to get in touch!
