About meI've worked in education and business but have always managed to include some element of creative writing in what I do.

Ten years ago I had a revelation and realised that what I actually wanted to spend time doing was writing fiction. I had written seven novels in two years at the age of twenty, all of which were later lost in a cellar flood (the joys of paper back-up), and had won a playwriting competition with a play on the life of Isaac Newton.

But I realised that having spent many years reading and teaching 'proper' literature, I spent most of my time absorbed in American crime fiction. And it seemed to me as good as most of the contemporary, non-crime literature that I had been reading. So I decided to transplant the 'feel' of the American noir novel into a British environment to see what it looked like. It looked good.

So in those ten years I've written three novels featuring private eye Sam Dyke and have recently published my fourth - non-crime - novel, Actress.
