I was born in Kent in 1958, attended state school and excelled in English and skipping off school in sixth form. I then spent thirty plus years in the advertising and marketing business, working at Suzuki as marketing services manager and then in several large ad agencies in London's west end.
In 1995 I started my own agency making it into the UK's biggest specialising in the motorcycle industry.
I was married to Deborah for 23 years and have three sons. I hold a diploma in business studies, one in sales promotion and a degree in marketing.
I then spent two and a half years living in the Philippines, and have written a follow up book to Acre of the Dordogne called A Barangay in Bohol, which is now available and selling well.
My latest book is of short fiction stories and called Coincidences, available now on amazon as a e-book for Kindle and other e-readers. If you like twists and the unexpected turn of events, murder mysteries and intrigue Coincidences is for you.
I am now working on a novel called The Sentant Verses which covers a 70 year span from Libya in the immediate aftermath of the overthrow of General Ghadaffi to the end of the second world war in Europe. The Sentant Verses shows that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction; nothing happens in isolation. Oil, intrigue, east meeting west and the manipulation of history by the superpowers all add up to a fast paced spy story full of action and mystery.
I like to think that I have a good sense of humour but find some things and some people too annoying or serious to be funny.
I am happily married to Jenny from the Philippines and live quietly in France with a cat called Mimms.
