Welcome

Hello and welcome.

It has taken me quite a few years to admit that I wanted to write a book, and then more time to actually get on with it. In the end it was a Neil Gaiman quote that prodded me into write a whole manuscript: 

“This is how you do it: you sit down at the keyboard and you put one word after another until its done. It's that easy, and that hard.”

Or, as I like to think of it, the easiest way to write a book is to sit down and actually just write the damn book.

I write in London and in Normandy - in coffee shops, in the flat and when I am very lucky, in a study overlooking a quiet field. Much of my plotting is done while walking along deserted Norman beaches - tons of peace and quiet seems to work for me.

I try to update the News section quite often and you can see my Twitter feed there on the left. I hope you enjoy what you read - both here and , eventually, in print.
