    So this is the place...

    Hi everybody,

    I'm a former TV director who saw the light and decided to write fiction instead. I was lucky enough to have a hit with my debut novel on the Kindle so I've decided to keep going.

    Looking forward to sharing views and experiences with everybody. Do say hi.
