I write books, short stories and articles for adults and children of all ages.
There’s lots to explore in here. Have a click around the menu and see what you can find!
Message to teachers: visit my ‘For teachers’‘ page and also workshops, visits and bookings pages to learn about my talks and workshops. Discover how you can match my novels to the English and/or History curriculum. You’ll find a comprehensive description of themes, topics for discussion, class activities and associated articles of interest for all my books. NB I illustrate all my talks with powerpoint presentations that begin with the ideas and where they came from and then go on to show eg photographs, maps, reports, diaries etc so that the audience can follow my ‘journey’ through researching and writing the novels.
For adults: I also give talks to clubs and societies, and run workshops on creative writing in a variety of genres, including writing a short story, fantasy, crime, history and life writing. One of my most popular presentations is ‘An Author’s Journey’ where I talk about what inspired some of my novels and how I went about researching and writing them (with powerpoint illustrations). For more information about my presentations please go to workshops, visits and bookings.
