About This Author

After graduating from Cambridge University I travelled in Europe for a few years before joining a the pinstriped denizens of the City of London. There I remained until age and possibly incompetence found me out. After that I became an author. Nine books later I am slowly becoming more confident and I will admit I relish the reviews that find their way to me over the Web. It seems that I'm getting there. Why not see for yourselves.
