Welcome to my website


SDC10043Hi! Here is a picture of my work space. It’s an old bureau I found in a junk shop

To take this photo, I had to squeeze right up into one corner of my tiny office. My wheezy old laptop has been my trusty sidekick for years. On the window sill, you can see a few model daleks, my pet rock from Blue Anchor Bay in Somerset, and you can just about see my little model of the starship Enterprise (the NX-01, for all you Trekkers out there). That’s my Marvel Comics mug on the desk.

Believe it or not, I’ve had a big tidy-up. Normally, my desk is piled high with all kinds of rubbish.

You can find my books at…

…most online booksellers, or at your nearest bookshop – if they haven’t got the title(s) you want on the shelf, just ask and they can order it for you. Ebook editions are often cheaper than the printed versions, sometimes much cheaper. You can read ebooks on your phone or tablet, you don’t need an ereader.
