Writing

3 Indie Novels
There’s a trilogy of comedies coming your way. ‘Hello Berlin!’ was released at the end of 2016, and another 2 books will be coming out in the near future. Subscribe to the email list for samples, snippets, news, reviews and that kind of thing.

Hello Berlin!
Several years ago (blimme time flies) I came back to London after living in Berlin for several years. And all I have to show for it is a piece of fiction! Also inspired by Christopher Isherwood's fabulous Berlin stories.





The Artie Stone series
I’m developing a crime series focused on London based detective, Artie Stone. It’s in its early stages, so if you’re a fan of the crime noir genre, subscribe to the email list and you may get a chance to contribute suggestions on my journey from noir novice to Grand Master.
