In My Own Words:
Im from Newcastle upon Tyne in and I became a writer by accident honestly! I have no formal writing qualifications and certainly nothing like a University or College education. I was on a long flight several years ago and I was bored, so I opened up my laptop and began to type.

As a self confessed fan of Dalton I couldn't wait to load the book onto my Kindle and get cracking. So after a particularly long day, feeling a little tired, I retired early with the intention of taking in a chapter or two before sleep came a knocking. Well what can I say? Dalton's done it again and his clever plot and wholly believable characters kept my tired lids open until the early hours of the morning until my brain screamed 'no more.'

We are then taken on an unforgettable… Read more

Whatever Happened to Billy Parks

Do you remember Malcolm Macdonald and Billy Bremner, Jimmy Greaves and Jinky Smith, and the football professionals who smoked cigarettes at half time and would take an odd pint down the working men's clubs or the local pub and would quite freely talk about the game and where it went wrong without an agent on their right hand shoulder and a club press officer on the other? Remember when footballers talked with each other and played cards on the away bus instead of sulking and wearing headphones that are waaayyyyy to big. Do you remember when men were men and if a footballer took a hard… Read more
