I'm lucky to write from our idyllic coastal home overlooking Cardigan Bay in beautiful West Wales where I live with my wife and best friend Ally. I've written 14 books so far and over 100 of my short stories have been published in various anthologies, magazines, and on literary websites.
My books are always easily accessible and I believe nothing beats a cracking good story full of surprises rather than literary references.

My very latest book is "Letters from Llanaber" which is a collection of satirical, fictional newsletters, and is global politics seen through life in this strange tiny village in West Wales. Village life is documented in the village ‘newsletter’ written by the parish council’s Foreign Secretary. The characters and events in the village may seem bizarre beyond belief but take a closer look. Are they really that different to what’s happening in ‘the real world?’
One of my recent books is 'Ten Tense Tales' which is a collection of five novellas and five short stories, all gripping tales that twist and turn, each dripping with horror, shocks and grizzly surprises.
Another recent book 'JAM (Just About Managing)' is a comedy drama about the daily fight for survival for Ross, a humble middle manager in the cruel, de-humanising and unforgiving corporate world of hotels.
'Whistleblower' is a Scifi / Horror detective story. The world is blighted with killer kids, but they’re just a symptom of something much more sinister. It’s a white knuckle ride for our two heroes to save Earth from a very nasty end.
'Retribution' is the sequel to Whistleblower - a Scifi / Horror detective story. It’s the end of an easy shift for Jake Redwood, our lowly Detective in Polk County. When he receives a mysterious phone call while having a drink with his buddies, it starts a fast and furious train of events, as he runs for his life to escape retribution for heinous crimes he doesn’t even know he’s committed. Jake Redwood is once again running for his life… but from whom?
I have three further collections of Ghost / Horror stories, “Guests of Horror,’ ‘The Last Train Home,’ and ‘Peek-A-Boo.’ All are packed with spine-tingling stories to thrill, chill, and sometimes make you laugh.
'Seeds of Freedom' is a fast paced detective / political thriller set in a sleepy Welsh seaside town with dark secrets. Its sequel, 'The Seed Cloud,' is set amid the chaotic new world of Wales at the mercy of a terrorist organization.
'One Bad Penny' is a thriller about events leading up to, and the aftermath of, an industrial disaster and its impact on the town and its inhabitants.
My other two books 'One Bad Gig' and 'Another Bad Gig' are comedy dramas following the hilarious ups and downs of an incident prone hapless gigging musician.
