According to the bio on Amazon: "I was first inspired to write when I read Lord of The Rings as a child. Back then the ambition was to create a whole fantasy world with dragons and sword fights but, as George RR Martin seems to have cornered that market, I now write comedy thrillers set in the (almost) real world instead.
I am somewhat obsessed with the public and media’s obsession with celebrity, which forms the backdrop my books. These also tend to feature spies, gangsters, vicious (if feckless) criminals, washed-up private detectives and daytime TV presenters.
The Meal of Fortune is the third novel I have completed but the first to be published. The sequel. Tinker Tailor Soldier Chef will be published in early 2021.
I live in London with my fantastic wife and two remarkable children. My main rule in life is to never let tomato ketchup touch any food that is green. I am yet to work out any deep meaning behind this and suspect it is not the soundest of principles by which to live my life. But it’s better than quite a few I’ve come across down the years. Best not to get started on that though."
