I was born in England and am now on the lam in Poland. I left school at sixteen and my first job was on a government scheme updating Ordinance Survey Maps. It wasn’t as glamorous as it sounds. I’ve worked in a second-hand record shop and played bass in a couple of post-punk bands. I’ve been EFL teaching for over ten years and still seem to be getting away with it.
I’m the author of A Case Of Noir, Guns Of Brixton, Roman Dalton- Werewolf PI and a few other tasty snacks that you can find here.
My writing has quite shockingly been translated into Italian, Polish and Slovene. I know! I’ve had stories published in various magazines and anthologies, including The Mammoth Book Of Best British Crime 8, 10 and 11 – alongside the likes of Lee Child, Ian Rankin and Neil Gaiman. Which is nice.
I also edited the charity anthology True Brit Grit, along with Luca Veste, and a couple of other things, too.
Oh, and I regularly contribute to Pulp Metal Magazine and have a regular column – Brit Grit Alley – at Out Of The Gutter Online. I’m a member of International Thriller Writers Inc.
