Introduction to me and my work
Hi and Welcome to my website. I am a Nottingham born Writer, and I am hoping to be published in the very near future. I still live in Nottingham, but it has been a lifelong dream of mine to emigrate to the USA and I'd love to to be able to do that soon.
I have completed one novel called "Confessions Of Revenge", a psychological thriller. "Confessions Of Revenge" tells the story of Anna and her twin sister, two lives turned upside down when their family is torn apart. After Anna is abused as a child, she
runs away from the family home in Chicago, seeking shelter with a relative whilst she tries to get her life back. But Anna isn't safe from the past that she thinks she has left behind, and she soon finds that her past is coming back to haunt her.
day, Anna is given a diary and asked, as a final wish, to read the diary, to understand the events that lead to where she is now. Will Anna be able to forgive? Forget her past and move on?
See my blog page for a sneak peek at "Confessions Of Revenge".
I'm currently working on my second novel, "Black Widower". This is also a psychological thriller.
My new novel tells of Xander Barlow, a man who is hell bent on getting away with murder. That is, until
he makes the one mistake that will come back to haunt him. You know what they say about revenge being a dish best served cold.

Hi everyone, welcome back to my page! I have some new features coming up in the new year that I'm super excited about. Firstly, I'm going to be starting a brand new book club. I'll still be reviewing books monthly, and the book club will tie into that. If you're interested in joining my book club, use the "Contact me" page and drop me a line, and I'll add you to the book club mailing list. I also plan to add a closed group to Facebook for the book club too.
I'm also going to be adding more of my articles and short stories to this site, something I've been meaning to do for a while but things have gotten in the way this year.
Of course, I'll also be carrying on with my blog posts - thank you so much to all of you for your ongoing support, I really appreciate it.
I'll see you all in the new year - Happy 2019!

Merry Christmas everyone and Happy New Year!
I have some news for the new year coming up soon - "Treats from a writer's table" is a new feature I decided to begin in January. This will be a selection of my favorite recipes and ideas from my own table. Not just from Christmas, but altogether. I have a great selection ready to go from party food ideas, to main courses. Most of the recipes are my own, some I've had from magazines and tweaked a little, adding my own touch. Whatever the deal, I hope you'll enjoy having a go yourselves.
Also new is my Autumn update blog, featured on my writing blog page. I know that it has been a while since I was last able to add a blog, and I apologize for that, but I ask that you bear with me a little longer and check it out, good and new over the next few days.
In the meantime, I hope you've all had a great Christmas, and I wish you all a wonderful new year!

I've added a new page to answer some of the questions that I'm asked regularly. "Why do I write?", "Where do I get my ideas from?" are the two most frequently asked. Do you have a question? what would you most like to know? send your questions to me through the contact page and I'll let you have the answer!

As a special Birthday edition to the site, I have added a new 'Top 30' list. This list is already taking shape, featuring the top 5 books (and movies) in each of the main Genre's. So far I've added Horror and Supernatural. Keep tuned for Romance, Crime and Adventure/misc.

Exciting news! This is a sneaky preview of the cover of my debut novel, "Confessions Of Revenge"
My new website and blog has arrived! I'll be updating progress reports on my new work, adding chapter news and when the time comes there'll be publishing dates and book launches! - I really hope to see you there!
My new book review section is live! and is perfect for those of you looking for a good book (if you haven't already scoured my reading lists). I'm adding a mixture of books, some are great, others I might only read the once, but either way, you can guarantee my reviews are honest. I would always urge you to make your own decision though, don't ever judge a book by a review or by the cover. Take a chance and read something new, you never know what adventure awaits...
It's here! My new Book Club has finally arrived!! Check out the page for details on how to join the club - I look forward to seeing you all soon!
