Publisher info

I was raised in Fleet, Hants. I have a degree in metallurgy from Sheffield University and have published a number of technical papers. After 30 years in the aerospace industry, I have now retired to spend more time with my family, continue writing poetry and paint in watercolours. I live in Nailsea, North Somerset with my wife Judy and have 2 grown up children, Beth and Stephen. I regularly present new poems, which explore my Christian faith from many angles, at Cafe Create locally. Both Judy and myself have read our poems there since 2012. We are both members of Living Waters Church in Clevedon.

  • Covenant Deception on May 19, 2013

    I really enjoyed the twists and turns of Covenant Deception. There's lots of mystery and history. I like how you think you might know how something will turn out, but it doesn't end up that way. I liked the characters I met and the places I visited. If you want a great read, read Covenant Deception by Angela Schiavone.
