About this author

I’m a crime writer, an optimist, and lover of things wild and wonderful. This eclectic mix makes my books different from other crime novels. My life hasn’t been dull, and I’ve used my rich life-experiences to write books with unique, compelling plots that twist and turn, where the characters are multi-layered and life-like.

At present, I’m in the middle of writing a trilogy, The Harry Fingle Collection, about a crusading journalist, Harry Fingle, dedicated to publishing the truth, regardless of threats to his life. Playing Harry, the first in the trilogy, is available now.

The guy sat opposite you on the train sneers and looks down his nose at his partner as she tries to explain something to him. The train comes to a halt at a station. He leaps up, glances down at her as though she’s a piece of dirt, says ‘If that’s what you think, I’m done,’ tosses his head back, and storms off the train, leaving his partner looking stunned and sad.
Was that the end of a relatio... Read more of this blog post »

Oh, What a Night! (Humor)
1 chapters   —   updated Sep 21, 2012 02:43AM
Description: A bizarre, hilarious urbane-fantasy short. The author invites all the villains, drug-dealers, mafia bosses, policemen, spooks, and hookers from his books to a funereal-themed, fancy-dress, extravaganza, choreographed by an undertaker. Wacky, outrageous – a touch violent.
Murder he Forgot (Mystery & Thrillers)

Description: Guy forgot he tried to murder his wife, twice.
Electronic Crime in Muted key (Mystery & Thrillers)
