Welcome to my website
which is a little about me but mostly about my writing and where you can read extracts from my novels, poems and a short story. The poems were inspired by my first novel, The Boy I Love, which in turn was inspired by the first short story I ever completed, 'The Lilac Tree', which you can read here. There are also links to other websites which I have found useful as a writer. All comments, queries and criticism are welcome, and if you would like me to speak to your reading or writing group (or any other group) please contact me. You can also find out about MY NEW BOOK, The Good Father, and keep up with the latest news, views and events in my online diary.
