About meI'm an author and a reader. I write dark thrillers - Peril, The Baptist, The Crucible - and read thrillers and literary fiction.

I've pedalled the pushbike of life until the chain fell off. Now living in rural Ireland where the natives are friendly and the weather atrocious, I write crime fiction and thrillers.

Ruby's News is my newsletter with freebies, pre-release info and other updates. As a welcome gift each new subscriber can choose a free e-copy of one of my books in their format of choice (epub, mobi, pdf). Go to my blog or to subscribe.

About my libraryJust a selection of some of the books that I've read over the last few years and still have in my bookcase. I've given away several times that number, but wish I'd hoarded them. The squirrel instinct comes and goes.
These days, when not writing, I mostly read 'literary fiction' i.e. stuff that doesn't fit easily into a genre. That's reflected in my writing too.
