About Me

I write crime fiction. My main character is usually an amateur detective.

I also write blogs, articles and books on various subjects, notably risk and management and about matters relating to faith. I write historical fiction using a pseudonym and usually include a murder mystery in those novels too.

I love animals, especially horses, and nature generally.

I enjoy reading and writing mysteries, especially whodunits.

If you share my loves, I hope you will enjoy my writing.

What I do


I am fascinated by words and have studied different foreign languages. In my career I have been required to write a variety of texts, and continue to write about a range of subjects.
