We are delighted to offer a FREE Kindle dowload of the first GUMSHOE mystery.

The Candidate

Richard Griffiths is in a quandary: he wants his country back. Having sat on the side-lines for too long he realises he has to take action. He wants laws made by the UK parliament and the courts to be supreme – so enters the murky world of politics. Planning on becoming an MEP, he hadn’t […]

Let me introduce GUMSHOE

  One of my readers made a comment to me a few years ago about how much he liked novellas. Ideal he said, for a plane or train journey. So for some time I’ve been toying with the idea of writing a series of stories of less than 30,000 words but with a new character […]

Audio book on its way !

At this time of the year my thoughts turn to spring and summer. I’m a warm blooded kind of person. I like it sunny and hot. It means barbeques, cold beers and cool wine. It also means wandering the UK appearing at events, doing the all important promotional work. So I’ll be travelling far and […]

Why am I an author?

It’s an interesting question because, believe me, it’s not for the money. As a small child I loved making up stories and games and I lived in a wonderful world of make believe. At school this translated into writing essays which always gave me pleasure. I can escape real life and control the actions of […]

On the Move

It’s that time of year when I’ll be touring bits of the UK doing book-signings at agricultural shows and similar events. I enjoy these enormously as I meet a lot of friendly people who stop and chat and peruse my books. Of course, my latest, Corruption, about the shenanigans that are going on in the […]

Spring is nearly sprung

A lovely time of year. Of course Spring brings optimism and hope, not to mention snow-drops and daffodils. I was taken to see Die Hard 5 for a birthday treat last Friday. Bruce Willis and his son are shot at, thrown about, leap tall buildings, have more car crashes in an hour than 1,000 people […]

Faith and Fundamentalism

Like everybody else I know, I have no problem with what faith people have. I want to live in a tolerant world where people are free to enjoy their religion and take comfort from their beliefs.  Tolerance surely has to be the most important aspect of life and sadly one which, in certain parts of […]
