I do not confine myself to a single genre of writing.
My interests include political thrillers, crime, young
fantasy and humour (though some might question that!)
First was Keepers of The Deep – a story especially written for young people; a fantasy land and tale of wonder and friendship.
The Feathers is a crime story set in London. It is written around a serial killer and the police officer tracking him down – with interference from a quizzical newspaper reporter.
was my first attempt. Fred Nurk’s idea is pure fiction, perhaps fantasy. But maybe someone should actually try it.
Another novel is The Jade Buddha. This is another crime story which starts in Hong Kong but
moves to London and Amsterdam.
My latest book is The Catskinner – a faction novel set amid actual events in Hong Kong in the 1980s when the colony was bracing itself for the handover to China near the end
of the century.
By way of background, I worked as a journalist for newspapers and magazines throughout Europe, Australia and the Far East for a decade before switching to public relations.
the next thirty years I was a senior PRO in the United Kingdom, Australia and, for almost 20 of those years, in Hong Kong.
Then I established my own hub communications agency in London where I live and work.
