I am the author of three novels. It is with a big smile on my face that I can report that A Cleansing of Souls and Tollesbury Time Forever have been very well received. Of course I am hoping the same reception awaits The Bird That Nobody Sees which was released in July 2012!
In this blog I post my thoughts on writing, reviews of books I have read, along with updates and information on my published works. Cheers for stopping by!
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...
am pleased to announce that Tollesbury Time Forever has now achieved
the democratic distinction of receiving the full set of ratings on
Amazon UK thanks to a recent, and no less valid, 2 star review!
5 star: (65)
4 star: (8) 3 star: (1) 2 star: (1) 1 star: (1)
Get in there! And for all you non-ebook users, it is also available in good old paperback...
