Meet the Author

A retired single handed sailor with a love of dogs, rugby, golf and family not necessarily in that order. I get more curious as I get older and read books voraciously. I try and make my creations believable with an eye to "description" particularly of those places I've visited personally which is most of the "locales" in my books. I write because I love to write not as a means to pay the bills, although it would be nice as every "author" will tell you. For most, the marketing is far more difficult than the writing. The Irish Whiskey "Writer's Tears" is surely aimed at the marketing, effort not the tale itself. There perhaps is the operative word.....my books are a tale, a yarn. Hopefully something to get lost in. The good guys wear white hats, the bad....black but quite often good is not good and bad is not bad. All will become clear.........even to me as I never know how it's all going to end until the end.....that's the fun of it!
