Born in Camberwell, southeast London, I have always been a keen reader and from about the age of nine started writing the occasional story for my own pleasure. Over the next few years, an interest in filmmaking distracted me from writing; later on, I worked briefly as a runner for a video production company, before turning back to writing.

My first novel for young adults, "Deadfall" (a thriller for 12-year-olds & over about terrorism and computer-hacking), was published in 2012, the Kindle edition reaching the top 60 in Amazon's US bestseller list for teen spy books.

My poetry and short fiction for adults have won awards from CanYouWrite and ABC Tales. Also, I am an occasional reviewer for The Compulsive Reader website.

My stories

Down on the Wind Farm

An expressionist take on the new wind farm at Thanet.

A Walk Through the Infinite

A Walk Through the Infinite What have they done to our old school? Built over our memories, that’s what. Concrete and wood laid over our childhood, Asphyxiating our earliest school days.

The Commuter

The Commuter Blank faces in a streaming crowd, Bodies steeled with grim resolve, They surge down cold, stark stairways, Powerful as the black light Of an imploded quasar.

The Glass Lake

The Glass Lake Concealed in my lakeside den, I watch a small, slim figure, Eyes clear as nitrogen, Projecting their ocean-deep blueness With the brilliance of an alien starfield.

Panoramic

Panoramic The god’s-eye view clasps you in its concrete grasp, Envelops your mind with its cloak of stillness; Terrain unchanged for endless eternity Dazzles with awesome spectacularity.
