About Me

I'm an ex-actor, fringe theatre director and script writer, married and living in the Welsh Marches, the borderland between England and Wales, and the backdrop to a series of books I'm writing, the Batch Magna novels. All the books in the series feature converted paddle steamers on Batch Magna’s river the Cluny, and I am former houseboat dweller himself, living in the mid-1970s (the time frame for the novels) on a converted Thames sailing barge among a small colony of houseboats on the Medway, deep in rural Kent. An idyllic time, heedless days of freedom in that other world of the river which inspired the novels, set in a place I called Batch Magna.
The first novel in the series, The Cuckoos of Batch Magna, was first published as a paperback by BrWrite Book, and is being released as an e-book next week by Endeavour Press.
