Meet the Author

I was born in England in 1950 and educated at Watford Boys' Grammar School and Sussex University, where my interest in natural history led me to read biology.

My first successful novel was "The Stone Arrow", which was published to critical acclaim in 1978. It subsequently won the Winifred Holtby Memorial Prize, administered by the Royal Society of Literature in London, and was the first in a trilogy. This was followed by "The Penal Colony" (1987), a futuristic thriller that formed the basis of the 1994 movie "No Escape", starring Ray Liotta.

The main difficulty for the author is making his voice heard in the roar of self-promotion. I believe that the work I am producing now is of higher quality than my prize-winning first, and ask you, the reader, to help spread the word by telling your friends if you have enjoyed one of my books.

    Nice read

    I bought this book after reading "Penal Colony" and found this one just as pleasant.

    Leader's den

    A fallen hollowed out log. One entrance, and enough room to fit three.

    Too vulgar.

    This was so difficult to read that after a hundred+ pages I had to skip to the end. It was very vulgar for my taste.
