Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I always loved English at school, and whilst I was studying the subject at university I thought I’d give novel writing a go – I’ve completed several books as well as some poetry and stage plays over the last twenty years or so, but it’s only now I’ve felt brave enough to offer them to potential readers.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
Champagne Jealousy – A Detective Investigates: A comedy community and its workplace romance. I suppose the gargantuan title speaks for itself, but in a nutshell it’s inspired by my many years working in the retail industry.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
Great question! I don’t believe in inspiration, is that good enough!!? I reckon you’ve just got to write, and get on with it too, especially when you have a family and work full-time into the bargain! (Please see my Goodreads profile for more)
What authors, or books have influenced you?
Mary Shelley (Frankenstein), Charles Maturin (Melmoth the Wanderer), Douglas Adams (Hitchhiker’s Guide), Arthur C. Clarke (Rama)

What are you working on now?
I’m writing a 10,000 page poem! I started in 2007, I’m at 6,600 at the moment!
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
I hope this one will be the best yet
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Write for yourself, not for anyone else
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
What you put into life, you get out of life
What are you reading now?
This question!! Only joking, I’m reading a book about religions of the world
What’s next for you as a writer?
I want to write a thriller
If you were going to be stranded on a desert island and allowed to take 3 or 4 books with you what books would you bring?
