When I was a child I was always scribbling away: I’ve still got a huge collection of stories, plays and comics in the attic from that time. Then in my teens I got distracted by exams, boys, and my first job, and eventually the writing tailed off. I had a successful career in architecture and design, and it wasn’t until many years later, when my ten year old daughter complained that she couldn’t find any good books to read, that it occurred to me to take up writing again. I had recently had to give up my job due to health problems, so it seemed the ideal opportunity to fulfil an old ambition. Since then I’ve written many articles on health, nutrition and family history, two books on nutritional therapy, and two children's novels..

So this summer, in preparation for the work ahead, I’ll be rereading children’s classics such as Swallows and Amazons, Phillip Pullman’s Northern Lights, and Tom’s Midnight Garden. Plus, as an Essex author, I look forward to reading Strange Magic, a tale about witches, magic and a centuries old mystery, by Syd Moore, another Essex author.(less)

If only half the stories about Richard and his parents are true, fact is in truth stranger than fiction. If I turned the story into a novel, nobody would believe it!

What a Difference Six Months Makes

What a difference six months makes. When I wrote the last blog, lockdown was something that happened in other countries. Since then, of course, it has been and gone in the UK, but is now on its way back again, at least in some parts of the country.
If you thought that being stuck inside your house 24/7 with none of the usual distractions would be an ideal scenario for a writer, you’d be wrong. For Read more of this blog post »

I love a good murder mystery, and this one gripped me right from the start. Pip, the main character, reminded me of Hermione Grainger from the Harry Potter series – a very bright student who set herself the task of re-examining a closed murder case. ...more

Another outing for my favourite PI duo, set in London at the time of President Trump’s visit to London. Creepy characters, and creepy settings plus a complex, fast-moving plot made this a satisfying read.
