I write my novels for one reason only - because I enjoy doing so. I have no literary ambitions beyond recording, shaping and polishing the stories that have been going round in my head for years past. The fact that others sometimes seem to enjoy reading them is most gratifying and an added bonus but is not my main motive in writing them.

My novels are all set in the contemporary United Kingdom. They contain no great danger or excitement; there are no vampires, zombies, gangsters or extra-terrestrials. They are about individuals coming to terms with who they really are. They are not autobiographical in any way, but rather deal with things 'that might have been' if I'd been born forty years later.

The two short-stories at the end of the list are both pieces of experimental fiction, written for BC competitions. One is a ghost story set in 1930s/40s Norwich, and the other a dystopian view of UK life in the 2090s. I'll leave it to others to decide whether or not they were successful.

Honey Bunny is now complete!

For those readers who wish to make sure that a story will be finished before they begin reading, I have just posted the last chapter of Honey Bunny.

This has been the best received of all my stories to date and so I hope you will at least give it a try!

Prolonged silence

It has been nearly nine months since I last contributed a chapter to the site. It was not that I've not been writing, but I have made a couple of false starts and after 20-25,000 words I have become blocked. I have however now completed fourteen chapters and 44,000 words for my third attempt, and have a clear idea of where I want it to go, so I will risk posting again. I have just posted chapter 1 and will post chapter 2 tomorrow. Thereafter I will post chapters at weekly intervals as usual.
