Although my degree was in Psychology and Philosophy, my interest in the lonely, the outsider and the dysfunctional and their search for love has been inspired more by life and a feel for translating life into character and so into fiction.

I suppose my love of the expressive power of language leaves my work hovering somewhere between literary fiction and character observation - characters tested and driven to extremity and yet who still have the option to find happiness.

I hope each book title will deliver the sincerity of this, granted that each will have a different, setting, location, plot synopsis and emotional core. Here is a customer review.

The first story, "A Musical Calling", seemed at first just a well written portrait of a guy, Sam Baldock, who suffered the delusions or calling of voices, as a schizo. But this one, like the others, with the exception of the romance at the end, lulled me with its apparent realism only to leave me well and truly in the presence of the supernatural.

A ghost in itself isn't usually enough for me but I have to say that the troubled characters, as drawn, really drew my interest.

If the ghost was never identified or even directly implied in these stories, there was still a mounting feeling in each as if the dark spread wings of a vulture loomed ever closer and those wings were going to engulf, the beak to stab away at a point unknown. Whether the feeling was delivered by Dr Harditch, the less than professional Harley Street hypnotist treating a nurse for her fear of spiders or by Sam Baldock, the schizophrenic dad remote from his lonely little daughter and committed to an asylum where he thinks he hears the voice of Beethoven calling him, the stories did get under my skin.
