Hi,

 

I was born and brought up in Brixton, South London until in my twenties I moved to Kent, the Garden of England many say. It is here where I now live and write; I have a wife, two daughters, four grandchildren, a cat and a dog.

 

I love reading and writing but these are not the only things that take up my time :- I enjoy juggling, playing the guitar and ukulele, and tap dancing...not necessarily all at the same time....

I am a member of the Sidcup -based (England, UK) writing group, "Ten Green Jotters",  who meet regularly to discuss our literary work and we have produced two anthologies of stories:  Literary AllShorts, and AllShorts of Crime

The world has produced wonderful authors, both historic and contemporary figures, and reading has brought pleasure and escapism to millions - if I can, in turn, give some pleasure to readers of my own stories that would make me a very happy writer.

 

I particularly like the short story form (although I am currently writing my first novel Billy's Band) and write in many genres, from thrillers and crime to romance and humour. I am inspired by such masters as W. Somerset Maugham, Saki, O. Henry, and contemporary writers such as Stephen King and many others who can not only characterise but make you want to turn the page and who will, quite often, surprise you with an ending, leave you moved, or make you think. I hope at least some from these collections have that effect.

Happy reading to you all.
