About meI am a writer as well as a reader. Scarily it is getting on for forty years since BBC Schools Radio gave me my first commission, and I have been writing as a part-time freelance ever since, mainly plays for the Beeb, and for education publishers. I got involved also with writing questions and formats for various TV and radio quiz shows. It's only in the last few years that I have been able to write full time, and in that time have produced: a collection of short stories 'We Never Had It So Good'; a thriller novel '11:59', which reached the semi-final of the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award 2010 and was subsequently published by Wild Wolf; an historical novel 'Mr Stephenson's Regret', an Amazon semi-finalist in 2011, also published by Wild Wolf.; and my new Wild Wolf novel, 'As Close As You Are To Me' which is a psychological mystery. I also do readings and workshops.

I still try to find as much time as I can for reading, though some of that time is swallowed up by reading for research purposes.

About my libraryI love the classics, especially British and Russian novelists of the nineteenth century, but I try to give as much time as possible to contemporary work too. Two of my favourite short story writers are Alice Munro and William Trevor. Among novelists I would recommend especially Ian McEwan, William Boyd and Hilary Mantel. Alan Bennett is a great favourite and so is.... oh, so many.
