Who am I?
Born and raised in the countryside, I’ve has been a lifelong fan of practical jokes, LEGO, colourful adventures, and above all else – a good story.
I currently lives in the big smoke (London, England) with my family, I tap friends on the opposite shoulder and glues coins to the floor.
Back in secondary school I had the good fortune to bump into Derik the Dragon, whose tale helped me win a prize in a short story competition. Over the years other characters like Albert the Dancing Troll, Percy the useless Wizard, Hoot the owl and Old Man Ferris and gave me their stories to tell.
Still can’t quite believe I’ve published 3 books!
Twilight Tales, fantastical short stories for reluctant readers
The Minor Gentleman, a novella with music, magic and a mystery for Lucy to solve
I’ve Got No Stripes, a rhyming romp picture book in a zoo
More coming with Tea O’Clock and Twilight Returns!
Drop me a note. You’ll find me with my character’s adventures in a local local library and coffee shop.

Atticus’s Favourite Quotes
“So do I,” said Gandalf, “and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.” The Fellowship of the Ring
