About this author

I like to write about things that really capture my interest in order to throw myself whole heartedly into the subject matter and develop a story around it. I spent 12 months in Australia and it was there that I developed an interest in Australia's history. Inspired by what I discovered, I wrote my historical fiction novel 'Bound to Sarah'.
I live in Liverpool with my wife and son and I'm currently working on his second novel which is set in war time Liverpool.
