Thanks for popping in!

After six years in London working in journalism and communications, poor eye health led to a reduction in my hours and a return to my adopted hometown of Bristol.

This change also rekindled an interest writing, primarily for younger readers and the non-fiction market. Today I am working on a range of material for both self-publishing and conventional publishing.

In the "news, articles and media" section you'll find an archive of my old articles (Evening Standard/The Independent), photography and other online work, mostly from my time as a freelance journalist.
