Bestselling writer of Fatal Consequences and Bay of Killers. His third book Blind Justice is due to be published in 2023.
Having worked in the film and TV business for many years, it came as a big surprise to find that I had a novel in me, particularly a crime thriller – which went on to become an Amazon bestselling book. Despite having written a multitude of scripts and treatments – primarily for films I was due to produce – becoming a bestselling author was never a consideration.
However, I found writing Fatal Consequences was such a pleasurable experience I decided to write a sequel, with the two main protagonists, Grant and Francesca. My second crime book, entitled Bay of Killers, was published by Endeavour Media in July 2018.
I am planning to complete the series with a further three books. My third novel, Blind Justice, is set in India, and is due to be published in 2023.
Like many writers, I find the whole writing experience quite cathartic, especially as my debut crime thriller was based on true events. Sometimes real life occurrences, and the things that people are capable of doing to each other, are more shocking than fiction itself.
