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 blurb for The Bird That Nobody Sees...

So what's the new novel about?

Although this novel is the second part of a Trilogy, it can still be read and enjoyed as a stand-alone work.

The fact that Rod Langford achieved classification as a midget by just half an inch did not sit well with him. It did not sit well with him at all. But when a washing machine literally falls from the back of a lorry at his feet, Rod wonders whether at last his luck is changing.

Some people though are just born unlucky; and it is a well known fact that when hope is taken away, a man may fall far indeed.

Can salvation come to Rod in the form of the locals from the pub around the corner? And what of his wife, Liz, who whilst working nights in the local supermarket, spends her time considering the benefits or otherwise of inserting poison into a variety of condiments?

Into the troubled lives of Rod and Liz Langford come the Eastern Region Angel Collective. But what, and who, are this mysterious organisation? Angels? Really?

Furthermore, what is this bird that nobody sees?

Either way, it seems, somebody is going to get seriously hurt...

The Bird That Nobody Sees is a novel about friendship, hope and compassion - full of humour, intrigue and a continuation of the themes developed in Tollesbury Time Forever.
