About the author

At the age of nineteen, suffering from a growing sense of isolation, I left my home on the west coast of Scotland and travelled to London. It was my intention to write songs/ lyrics and stories for children, but a series of unexpected circumstances led me off in a completely different direction.
Now, following a Long happy marriage, a bunch of decent kids and an award winning career in the music industry, I have finally found time to write again.

'Search for the sunlight,' my first novel, is a unique and lightly humorous adventure aimed at both young adults and those of us who are struggling to grow up.
The peculiar, sometimes bizarre, characters and locations that appear in the book are loosely based on old school friends and the places we used to frequent during my privileged childhood days on the beautiful west coast. (should any of you recognise yourselves, then I hope you're suitably offended!)

I am presently working on a sequel to 'Search for the Sunlight' - working title - 'Beyond the Underworld.' I also have several other unrelated works in various stages of completion, not least, 'The Adventures of Blenkinsop's Frog.' This is a tale about a frog who, with the aid of a pair of specially designed, re-loadable exploding boots, finds himself able to jump medal winning distances. The trouble is, he's never sure where the next explosion will take him! But that's a story for another day.
In the meantime, watch out for *'The Treewoods' in:
'Search for the Sunlight,' and the sequel, 'Beyond the Underworld.'

*A 'Treewood' is a long forgotten species.
26% tree and 74% human, these friendly and humorous creatures live happy and carefree lives in the depths of the great forest, where they remain, mostly undiscovered and unhindered by modern man.

I had to take my old Dog, 'Murphy,' to the vets yesterday (24/05/2017) to have him put down. It was the saddest day ever. He was very old, and very ill. I'll never forget him.
