I've been a sci-fi, speculative fiction and humour author since 1992.


My favourite work to date is 2019's Tow Away Zone, a quirky small-town comedy drama, set in modern day Arizona. It was originally designed as a Coen Brothers- type offbeat film, but I decided to novelise it instead.

In 2020 I published the sequel - Go Away Zone - which take the characters into a romcom caper with more love and livelihoods at stake.
In 2021 I'm hoping to complete the trilogy.

My sci-fi journey started with space opera "Scared Ground" being available on Kindle in 2012.
Warship captain Rakkel knows that the declaration of interstellar peace means the end of his career and the life he knows. Can he allow that to happen?

Published on Amazon in 2018 was my 2nd sci-fi novel - Imperfect Isolation - which embraces robotics, asteroid mining and a snowy drive in an 80-year-old Porsche 911. It's a wild ride for my wisecracking heroine Enna.

The sequel, Reprisals, followed in 2019. This takes the heroes of the first book, and the consequences of their actions, and dials up the stakes for their survival.

In early 2021 I released the 3rd instalment, Trip Hazard.
A third mishap in as many months has nearly befallen the tourist trade on Mars.
Enna Dacourt, however, senses it was no accident.
Is this all the work of pacifist anti-colonisation activists OnePlanet, or are other forces at work?

I'm currently editing a reflective Western, which was developed from a 2005 screenplay script.

I've written a collection of crazy humour stories/vignettes in the style of early Woody Allen prose - a real inspiration for me. The Real Jamie Oliver and Other Stories is basically a window into my nonsensical side.

Part of my writing effort now is devoted to pantomime scripts. I've had 8 scripts performed and reached a total audience of over 5000 to date.
