About This Author

I live in a small village in the Brecon Beacons in Wales with my partner Hester and our lovely Jack Russell dog Suki. I am a keen mountain walker having walked and climbed in numerous countries.I sometimes guide walking groups in the local national park. I have been writing the Minion or Master series of action adventure novels since late in 2012 after attending a creative writing course.I created my main protagonist, George Howden, in one class. This forms the preface to Minion or Master which is available on Amazon as a print or e book. The sequel Minion or Master II is available on this site. I am busy writing the third and fourth books. I only have a brief basic idea of the plot when I start each book and allow the characters and the plot to develop as I write each section. I use Scrivener software and find it very useful especially now I have so much information from research and developing the characters. I am now seventy years old but have no intention of retiring I enjoy my walking, my writing and running my niche professional practice.
