I'm a retired psychiatrist who loves to write fiction. My first novel was "Murder in Millbrook," a humorous mystery. My second novel, "Ethics of the Undead," a spoof of the vampire genre, was chosen by Kirkus Reviews as one of the twenty best young adult novels reviewed in 2014. It will be followed  In the autumn of 2016 by "The Cure," a stand-alone vampire adventure. 
I live in Cambridge with my wife Susan, who is an accomplished artist, and our dog Amigo, who likes digging in our garden a lot more than we do.
