Hello and welcome to my website, where I will keep you up to date on the latest news views and hot gossip about my latest works of crime fiction.

In between hunting down serial killers and searching out new ways to bury bodies, I’ll be letting a few skeletons out of the cupboard on the subject of how to create scripts and get them on screen and write novels that get snapped up by publishers.

When I’m not lost in the risky world of psychological thriller writing, I like wandering around the spectacular surf and turf landscape in my local area, getting creative in the kitchen and having fun with friends and family. I’m inviting you to join me on this rather crazy storytelling journey and maybe inspire you to start producing your own magical tales along the way.
