I have written fantasy for many years but I’ve been a lot more productive since I retired from my day job in 2010 and undertook an MA in Creative Writing at Middlesex University, with a specialist strand in SF and Fantasy fiction.

I am now a member of the London Clockhouse Writers’ Group. I have a couple of draft novels for which I am seeking a publisher and I’m working on a new one. But I’ve also written short stories and have recently had several published. I write book reviews for Vector and for the Historical Novel Society.

Here is a selection of my published writing:
