I was born in Liverpool in 1964
and have been in magazines and publishing since 1989 and I am an accomplished feature writer.

My debut novel "Dead Charming" is set in Manchester and stems from my keen interest in psychology and crime. I want to analyse the experiences of both perpetrator and victim through their emotional and psychological turmoil with often terrifying results.
You can find it here: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Dead-Charming...

My second novel "Deadly Determination" is a roller-coaster crime thrill ride set in Liverpool which is now available to download on your Kindle here http://www.amazon.co.uk/Deadly-Determ...
Paperback to follow shortly.

I have two children, Tom, 25 and Anna, 21 and live with my wife Susie a
