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...
