BiographyI was born in Scotland but moved regularly while growing up - Malaysia, Dubai, Qatar...Norfolk, Aberdeen and the Shetland Islands to name but a few places. Our family (including a blind Labrador called Porto) is now based in London and Norfolk.
I grew up loving “classic” adventure stories like The Count of Monte Cristo, Kidnapped and King Solomon’s Mines, and while a biology degree didn’t necessarily afford an obvious foundation to write, I’ve long wanted to pen something inspired by these tales. As a father of two boys who love history and books, my aim was to create a narrative that would capture their imagination and if readers enjoyed it, could be used as the basis for future adventures.
My first book, self-published via Amazon in February 2021, is “Bartholomew Mills and the January Dawn”.
