My manuscript, Veldt Hunter, was shortlisted for the Wilbur Smith Adventure Writing Prize, 2020.

     Wilbur's novels were my introduction to adventure writing and his work is certainly one of the inspirations behind my manuscript, Veldt Hunter, and protagonist Harry Swift.   

Pen for hire

I was, and still am, a journalist. In a world where everything is now connected I also make forays into PR and Comms (I'm becoming fascinated by making video).

     This enthusiasm to gain new skills once took me into the maelstrom that is school-teaching (that really was an adventure!). It was also a diversion from what I really enjoy – writing. Examples of my feature writing can be found here:
