Hi,

Welcome to my author page. My debut novel, 'The Super Spud Trilogy', was released in April 2012. It's about magical crisp packets with personalities determined by their flavouring - a little quirky and very satirical.

I enjoy sailing, fantasy football, skiing,table tennis, squash and playing computer/board games with my friend - especially Risk and Catan.
