I've been writing for most of my adult life, both for children and adults, and have been lucky enough to make a living doing it. In the course of my career I've been involved in three classics, including two iconic TV animation series: THUNDERCATS, for which I was one of the original writing team, and BOB THE BUILDER, which I co-developed and for which I wrote a number of episodes. The third is FULL MOON, widely regarded as the best bio of legendary drummer and hell-raiser Keith Moon. Written with long-time co-writer Peter Lawrence and Moon aide Peter ‘Dougal’ Butler, it was originally published by W H Allen in 1981, then republished by Faber & Faber in 2012.
I have written a trilogy of novels for young adults, comprising CLAWS OF FURY (originally published by Bloomsbury) CLAWS OF THUNDER and CLAWS OF VENGEANCE. Peter Lawrence and I have co-written a number of novels for adults, including IT'S YOUR MONEY IN MY POCKET, DEAR, NOT MINE IN YOURS and ENGULFED IN A TIDE OF FILTH.) Both originally published by Quartet Books, they are now available on Amazon Kindle, along with a sequel, THE MAO TSE TUNG WORKERS REVOLUTIONARY STRIPTEASE EMPORIUM. Our dystopian steampunk trilogy FRANKENSTEIN VIGILANTE comprises three novels: THE INCORRUPTIBLES; THE FEAR; and THE RECKONING. We have also published three horror novellas: BLOOD RANCH; LOOM: ISLAND OF TERROR; and NIGHT OF THE DOGS. Our most recent novel is sixties-set comedy romance FLASH CHORD.
