In an old country village called Chaddleworth in Berkshire, I grew up listening to my father's tales around the fireside on cold winter evenings. My father was a born storyteller. My mother recited poetry she'd learned, and would rattle off without a book.
I've written many novels, poetry and some hymns set to traditional tunes.
My favourite writers are Elliott O'Donnell, Dennis Wheatley and Jack Higgins, while my love affair with Ireland dominates most of my writing.
My inspiration is listening to old country music, both American and Irish, as it has been since my writing career began.
I currently reside in Thatcham, which is near Newbury in Berkshire.
