Reveries, my debut novel – available now on Amazon

Richard is a victim of tempestuous bowels, Nicole of delayed tooth eruption. After fractious and bizarre childhoods, they meet and engage in a fractious and bizarre relationship. It ends and they lead separate lives, hers fractious, his bizarre. Unknown to Richard, Nicole gives birth to twins. Boy, girl; deluded, difficult. Boy runs away, girl is a maladaptive daydreamer. An all-consuming addiction to tantric self-pleasure means that Richard, too, is miles away, in a world of his own. It falls to a private detective with questionable morals, Ronald, to pick up the pieces.

What else do you do?

I also write long form prose and script, and teach.

If you would like me to write something for you, please get in touch. I did a sartorial and embellished account of how Laura and I met, as a Valentine’s present, and she liked it a lot. Give me your details and I’ll give you a quote.
