About Me

Tollesbury, Essex, United Kingdom
I was born in the Summer of 1969 in Dagenham, just on the border of East London. School was largely unproductive but enjoyable, setting me up for something of a wayward but interesting life! On leaving school I had various jobs including putting up stalls at Romford Market, working in a record shop, putting up ceilings, gardening and road sweeping. After resigning from an insurance company to play in a band, I found myself unemployed for two years. Then finally I got back on my feet and I've been a psychiatric nurse since 1997. I wrote A Cleansing of Souls when I was 22 years old and followed it up with Tollesbury Time Forever almost twenty years later. I started writing The Bird That Nobody Sees in September 2011 and it was released in July 2012. In terms of writing, my heroes are Jack Kerouac and John Steinbeck. I would also include Kris Kristofferson, Bob Dylan and Tom Waits as literary influences. So that's me I guess - scruffy, happy and in love with literary fiction, music and life...

The second review is in!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Tollesbury Time Forever, 10 Jan 2012
Mr. G. G. Steward -"When I was younger, so much younger than today, I never needed anybody's help in anyway. But now these days are gone, I'm not so self assured, Now I find I've changed my mind, I've opened up the doors."

Tollesbury Time Forever - what a cracking read!

A roller-coaster journey into the mind(s) of a troubled soul, which terrifies you one minute, mystifies you the next and then has a tug at your heart strings for good measure.

Wonderfully written, well paced with a strong, original and emotional story line. The detailed description of characters, places, feelings and thoughts really bring this book to life from the outset - if you like books that you find difficult to put down, you'll absolutely love this one!

Great job!
