Hello, and welcome. I'm a novelist, a writer of short stories and occasional media articles.

The same year, I released my first novel, 'What Comes From the Earth', a thriller set in contemporary South Africa. There are some unedited extracts available on my website at www.4thousandwords.blogspot.com.
In 2017, I released a new sci-fi novella called 'This Burning Man', set in post-nuclear Arizona. Go to www.thisburningman.blogspot.com if you would like to know more!
In 2019, the first edition of my co-written serial, 'The Caribou Chronicles' became available on Kindle.
I'm currently based in Norwich, England's only City of Literature.
