I'm a former copywriter and Creative Director who has been writing books since 2009. Humour has always been my bent and I incorporate it in all my work. I have bounced between novels and short stories and also genre. My favourite protagonist is discount detective Paddy Pest, who is a cross between Maxwell Smart and James Bond. He features in a number of my books, with his beautiful offsider Stormy Weathers. However, not in the latest: Sky Foil - a spy
thriller that involves murder, mayhem, and political intrigue. Buckle-up for the read of your life.
