About this author

Born in Oldham, and lived in Cornwall, Sheffield, London and now Oxford.

Travelled in Tibet, China, Japan, India and Australasia among other places.

First book published 2007, "Jilla and Me: The Short Story Collection" after winning a regional heat of a national literary award, Undiscovered Authors.

Now trying to find an agent for my completed first novel, an accessible literary work called "The Spy and the Storyteller".

Also make a mean spicy mango pickle.

NOTE: Other authors on Goodreads (who also seem to have the same name as me)keep loading their books up as mine. They aren't. Jilla and Me is my only book so far.

It’s done. My first novel is finished, after an excruciating two-year process. 70,000 words and countless edits. This has been a huge learning curve and a sometimes dispiriting and exhausting one, but I’m so pleased with myself to have done what I set out to do.


I have submitted it to one publisher that had an open submissions slot, and will shortly start researching agents. It’s very nice to be...

I like Amy Tan's stories: the characters are brilliantly done. This one is no exception and the level of historical detail is great. However there did seem to be rushed parts to the story, particularly when the main character begins her career as a c...more

“Introverts crave meaning, so party chitchat feels like sandpaper to our psyche.”
Diane Cameron

“Poets have been mysteriously silent on the subject of cheese.”
G.K. Chesterton, Alarms and Discursions

“For those who like that sort of thing," said Miss Brodie in her best Edinburgh voice, "That is the sort of thing they like.”
Muriel Spark, The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie

“Aesthetic enthusiasm. Perception of beauty in the external world, or, on the other hand, in words and their right arrangement. Pleasure in the impact of one sound on another, in the firmness of good prose or the rhythm of a good story. Desire to share an experience which one feels is valuable and ought not to be missed. The aesthetic motive is very feeble in a lot of writers, but even a pamphleteer or writer of textbooks will have pet words and phrases which appeal to him for non-utilitarian reasons; or he may feel strongly about typography, width of margins, etc. Above the level of a railway guide, no book is quite free from aesthetic considerations.”
George Orwell, Why I Write
