By day, a mild-mannered International Man of Mystery for a major publisher, by evening a writer, Lush soap aficionado, runner and remorseless podcast addict. I’ve also been a contributor to many BBC comedy shows, a magazine columnist, book-reviewer, radio presenter and, often, drunk.

Between 2013 and 2018 I wrote the Winterhill series of science-fiction adventures, seven books telling the story of Rebecca Winterhill and her quest to find her true place in the Twelve Galaxies of human-space. The Winterhill books are comprised of episodic adventures (rather than traditional novels) which read like TV box-sets. Many people have said many nice things about them. The seventh book in the series will be published in 2019.

Like many writers I smell nice but am often prone to paralysing bouts of over-thinking.
