Fiction Writing

Debut book launch…

A four-time winner of the Bridport Prize and a Creative Writing graduate from the UK’s University of East Anglia, fiction writing is what I dedicate my time to (when I am not writing non-fiction about Eastern Europe, Scandinavia or Latin America).

My debut novel, Roebuck – Tales of an Admirable Adventurer, taking place in a 16th-century South America torn apart by war, piracy and the jealous desires of colonists and cannibals, and based on the real-life escapades of gentleman adventurer Anthony Knivet, was published in December 2015 with Urbane Publications. 

My second novel, Song Castle, will be published in 2018.

The next few months for me are involving a fair bit of related publicity – articles coming out, talks, work on the next fiction project and the like – and this site is the place to get the latest. For more on my fiction writing please feel free to contact me.
