Hello, and thank you for visiting my site. I hope that you'll return often and always find something of interest about my world and what inspires me to pick up a pen. (This is a figure of speech, unfortunately. My handwriting is terrible!) Here's what I've been up to recently...

Swings and Roundabouts


I’m delighted to announce that my third eBook, Swings and Roundabouts, has just gone live on Amazon.

While selecting the stories for this collection, I was reminded of a line in a song made famous by Frank Sinatra: ‘I figure whenever you’re down and out, the only way is up.’

Triumph can indeed spring from tragedy, although unfortunately the opposite can also be the case. These are not, however, tales of doom and gloom and I hope that you’ll find much to smile at and a fair number of surprises along the way.
