Meet the Author

I'm an Australian-Canadian living in Sydney. I started my writing career by penning (does that verb still work in this keyboard age?) historical pieces for magazines but changed my focus a few years ago to concentrate on book-length projects.

I co-edited "Australia and Sherlock Holmes", a collection of the best Sherlockian writing by Australians, published by the Baker Street Irregulars. And I co-edited "The Annotated White Company", an examination of Arthur Conan Doyle's medieval adventure novel, to be published in 2013 by Wessex Press.

"The Link" is my first novel. I've been following the Piltdown Man controversy for more than twenty years. I always felt that the fraud - which has never been satisfactorily solved - could form the spine of a great thriller. And who better to write it?

I'm currently hunched over my keyboard working on the next Augustus Parker novel.
