I write crime/mystery stories that are more than simple whodunnits. I want my readers to feel part of the world that I create in my books, to relate to my characters and to be catalyzed into feeling an emotional response to the events that I describe. I dislike gender stereotypes and the portayal of women as victims. There as as many male as female victims in my stories.

You will find more about the novels on the NOVELS page, and more about me on the ABOUT page.

I've started to write some free-to-read short stories that flesh-out some of my main characters. Some have been written at the invitation of organisations and charities (One Hundred, about Rae, is an example). Others have been triggered by unusual events that I have witnessed. Please look on the SHORT STORIES page.

Please visit the CONTACT page if you wish to send me a message about my books, about crime-writing in general or about anything else I've mentioned on these pages.

The website for my publisher, Joffe Books, iswww.joffebooks.com   Joffe Books publish a range of great novels so please have a look.

 My recent events have included an interview for Dorset Life magazine, an interview on Purbeck Coast Radio, and an author talk in Swanage Library.
