About This Author

I was born in Manchester in 1941, am married with two adult children and live near Kenilworth in Warwickshire. I am secretary and founder member of Balsall Writers and also a member of two other writers groups, all with different disciplines. I have taken part in writing courses with Tindal Street Press for both short stories and novels and been encouraged to continue both disciplines. Also I have had material published in both the Times, Sunday Times and Birmingham Post, predominantly of a political and business nature. I have been a regular submitter of short stories to online web sites, some humorous, others of a darker nature. Two of the writers groups have published anthologies which have contained examples of my work. When asked why I joined a writers group some years ago, I said “I have been writing business fiction for ages, so I thought I would try real fiction.” I have now completed my first novel a political thriller loosely based on my varied career. Initially I spent many years in banking covering many strategic issues. My life in local politics has provided a sound basis to explore the intrigues and treachery prevalent in that area of British life. The political life also provided exposure to negotiations with government at Ministerial level and provided an insight into the complexities and contradictions of public policy. I am writing about what I know and have seen at close quarters in both business and politics. My novel – circa 140,000 words (The Price of Loyalty) covers fraud in the financial sector with connections to the machinations in Parliamentary politics. A sequel has already been started, a prequel is in draft, with a third novel in the pipeline.
