The title and cover art will be announced this summertime, but as the contents have pretty much now been finalised I feel ready to disclose this here. In October I'll be publishing a brand new collection of thirteen short (and long) stories. This will be my first book in print since 2014's novel 'Arcadia Lodge'. It's good to be back. Stay tuned.


And here we are in 2018! A very happy new year to all my friends and readers. I'm pleased to announce that I'm back at work on some new short stories - at least some of which will round off a collection that will be published this autumn. More details on that nearer the time, of course. Until then, many thanks for your patience! This will be my first new book since 2014.


2017 marks my 25th year of being a published writer.

If that surprises you, spare a thought for my feelings. I have a hard enough time believing Iím older than that. The realisation came as an utter surprise to me. For days I kept thinking Iíd made a mistake, and sooner or later somebody would point out the truth. But the more congratulations (not to mention stunned looks) I received, the more I grew to accept it. And then I realised there was no way I could let this occasion go by without some kind of celebration.

So here I am. Iím back with a new website, which will gradually take shape over the coming months (so keep on checking back, as more is added and improved), and Iím also at work on some new short stories Ė ideas which have been growing in the dark corners of my mind for quite some time now, yearning for release. Iím also hoping to do some events later in the year, making appearances and presenting my work to you in one of the ways Iíve always liked best Ė through giving live readings and meeting up with friends and fans.

In the meantime, feel free to get in touch with me, through any of the arcane riuals assigned on my contact page. I'm out there... and I'm listening...

I thank you for these 25 years. I thank you for your ongoing interest and for your support.

Hereís to the next 25 years.
