The Road
About Me:
Award winning novelist, screenwriter and musician. Recent thrillers, Knife Edge, The Immortality Plot, An Angel On My Shoulder and Bodyswitch.

For fans of steampunk fantasy with a difference I have written the dystopian YA magical/scientific trilogy The Kingdoms Of Time And Space.

For children 7-10 I have written a new series, The Weather Kids starring Linzi Lightning (USA), Tommy Thunder (Australia), Rebecca Rain (UK), Wu-Shi Wind (China), Sofia Snow (Russia) and Sami Sunshine (Brazil).

I have been published by HarperCollins – the original edition of the bestseller, 10-Minute Miracle – and Orion, Fortress Manhattan. This has since become a sought after cult bestseller on the web.

I saw Pierce Brosnan naked and lived to tell the tale

Yes, it is true. I did see Pierce Brosnan naked, more or less every night and in public because I was working with him at the time but it was some considerable time ago. Before I ever had the notion of writing a book or a screenplay I was heavily involved in music - what is now called folk-rock or an even newer, voguish moniker, folk-psych.

PS:  Steampunk has captured my imagination but I've yet to dip my toes in the water.  I see you've written a book in that genre.  Would it be a good one for me to get my feet wet with?  Can I bum a copy?

Just so your announcement about wanting reviewers and Beta readers of your new manuscript.  I'm interesting in doing both.  I tried to follow you on your author page, but your RSS link doesn't seem to work.  Do you have a Twitter account I can follow?

Check out my blog and see if we're a good fit.  I like all sorts of books.  Here are a few other places where you can find me on the web:

I hope we can  connect!
