I was born in Cornwall, a distant relative of the historian, A L Rowse. However, because of my father's work, I lived in the Georgian City of Bath from the age of two. To some extent my love of books was fostered by a competent English teacher at my old secondary school. It was housed in a Georgian edifice called Weymouth House, a building that was a piece of history. I never understood why they pulled it down to build a Marks and Spencer store.

On the mortgage-paying work front, I spent forty years working as an air traffic controller in Northern Ireland, Scotland and England. The last twenty three years were spent at the College of ATC at Bournemouth Airport. I retired early in 2003 and dedicating my life to writing.

My love of books, which began in school days, has never waned over the years. In particular, I have a keen interest in historical fiction, which is why I wrote three novels about the area of Cornwall in which my ancestors lived. They are titled: In the Shadow of a Curse, In the Shadow of Disgrace, and In the Shadow of Deception. I also wrote about the history of the relationship between England and Ireland in The Gallows on Warlock Hill. Having spent most of my working life in aviation, that subject crept into King's Priory and, to a much greater extent, in Prestwick, Heathrow and Dead Reckoning. Other novels followed as the years passed. As a dedication to my grandfather, I wrote about World War One in two book called, In Foreign Fields and In Line of Fire. My latest novel is The Girl From the Killing Streets.I continue writing because I enjoy it.
