About the author

I live in an outlying Pennine village and share this blustery environment with a growing collection of books, my understanding wife and a workshop piled high with offcuts of oak. Our two grown-up children are among my best friends.

I managed to sneak a course about playwriting into my BSc technology degree, and I also hold an MA in Professional Writing. It's now over ... (crikey!) 40 years since I began writing professionally. I was still at school.

My hobbies include swimming, reading, watching lots of screen drama, helping to republish the novels of Leo Walmsley, and searching for that elusive moment of self-discovery. Hmm, no sign of it yet.

Here are some of the other books I have worked on
