Born and raised in Bristol, England, I spent my adult life in business, much of that time marketing cars, and eventually owned the largest Saab specialist in the world, before a divorce put an end to that part of my life. This led me to leave Bristol and live halfway up a mountain in the Welsh Valleys, start a six-year English Literature course at Bristol University, and attend creative writing classes in Cardiff. My interest in English literature consequently was peaked, I flourished soon won several prizes for my short stories. Over a ten-year period, I worked in the substance abuse charity sector, running book reading groups in various places including Parc Prison in Bridgend. A richly rewarding experience, both personally and as an inspiration for my future writing. So many interesting people entered my life during that period. My first collection, 'Twenty Short Stories - Settling a score," reached No 1 in the Short Stories Best Sellers and is still available, as are the second anthology "Twenty-One (more) Short Stories." 2016 was a busy year with the first of my thriller "Pin-up and Tanner" series - "Hand Over Fist" and a light hearted rom-com "Chasing What's Already Gone" were released out into the world. My third anthology - "Another Twenty-Two Short Stories" in September 2017; and to round the year off the follow-up to "Hand Over Fist," entitled "Hand in Glove" was published at the end of 2017. After a quiet spell I started writing once again and 2021 saw the publication of my fourth anthology "Twenty-Four Short Stories." Writing once again and "Twenty-Six Short Stories" was released in December 2023. In 2024 I will be publishing a thoughtful love story -"Paper Thin Words," and a rom-com thriller - "Quiet the Waves." Also putting my short stories into one anthology, provisionally entitled "120 Short Stories." 
I live very happily halfway up that mountain in the Welsh Valleys with my wonderful partner, Mari, and our rescue dog Wenna.
