About the author

In August 1971, I left my home on the west coast of Scotland and travelled to London. It was my intention to write songs, poetry and stories for children, but an unexpected set of 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 (well almost)

'Search for the sunlight,' my first novel, is a unique and lightly humorous adventure, aimed at younger readers and those of us who are struggling to grow up.
The peculiar, sometimes bizarre, characters and locations 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 of Scotland. (should any of you recognise yourselves, then I hope you're not offended. If you are? Tough!)

I am presently working on a sequel to 'Search for the Sunlight,' working title, 'Beyond the Underworld' and I 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 re-loadable exploding boots, is suddenly able to jump medal winning distances. The trouble is, he's never sure where he might end up! 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.'
I hope 'The Treewoods,' and friends make you smile!
