On my Twitter profile I describe myself as an 'Englishman, lost in Spain', but it hasn't always been that way. I was lost long before I came to live in Spain.
I was the first in my family who was expected to go to university, so I didn't. I ran away and joined the British army instead. I ran away from that six years later, becoming a cop on the streets of the beautiful city of Cambridge for twelve years. Staying true to myself, I finally ran away once more, this time as far as Spain, where I have been teaching English for the last 11 years whilst fighting the urge to run away yet again.
Writing has been my escape, and for the last nine years I have been writing numerous books in various genres in the hope that I can quietly give up the day job, instead of running once more (I'm seriously getting too old for all of that).
My memoirs of my time as a cop (The Rozzers series) are doing better than I ever could have hoped for. Once I get all of these books that are floating around inside of my head out and available in print, I'll finally settle down in one place.
