For those of you who want to know a little about me, I have
at various times been a chef, a milkman, maths lecturer, private tutor, IT consultant and project manager, and a
lifelong sailor; I'm now achieving a lifelong ambition to live on my boat and write novels.
During my careers I
have worked in the Middle East, Russia, Scandinavia, the US, Kazakhstan and much of Europe. I have sailed to many
of the Atlantic Islands, Brazil, the Mediterranean and North Africa in my own boat.
My educational background includes a Bachelor's degree in
Physics, a postgraduate degree in Oceanography and an MBA.
Personal interests, career, education and travel equip me
reasonably well as a writer of leading-edge techno thriller novels.
My own reading interests are built on having read all the
Alistair Maclean, Hammond Innes, Len Deighton, Mickey Spillane and Helen MacInnes (that's a clever name she
chose) books when I was a teenager. Now, I love to read John Le Carré, James Lee Burke and Lee Child (isn't
Jack Reacher the best hard guy around)?
Thank you for your interest - I promise I will do my
best to entertain you with my thrillers.
