Hello and welcome to the time of Alex Swan. A time when any cracks found in the Berlin Wall would just be hastily filled in again.

My debut novel and the first of my Alex Swan Mystery thrillers was Wings of Death. followed by Countdown to Terror,  Island of Fear, Spears of Defiance and Tracks of Betrayal. This Autumn sees the launch of Contrail of Vengeance, my sixth novel in the series. Also, look out for a prequel novella. Set in 1961, Flames of Thunder, chronicles the first Alex Swan mystery. A box set of the first three novels in the series is also available.

When I am not writing, I enjoy time with my family, taking our dog,  Marley, for long walks around my home in the woods and fields in the picturesque Weald of Kent. I’m also keen to get my facts right, so frequently visit museums and establishments so that I can provide total accuracy for my readers.

As an author, I enjoy reading with thriller and adventure the top of my list by such writers who I call the masters of their trade such as: Clive Cussler, Len Deighton, Frederick Forsyth and of course, the grandmaster, the late John Le Carre. Other authors I also enjoy are Peter James, Mick Herron, Charles Cumming and Anthony Horowitz. From time to time, I also like to re-visit the classics, with Dumas, Verne and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle among my true favourites for sheer literary escapism.

My biggest break in my own writing was securing the deal with Endeavour Media which changed name to Lume Books which is now part of the highly-successful Joffe Books umbrella.  I’m now working on the seventh Alex Swan novel as well as a new stand-alone spy thriller. I have also just completed my first children’s novel set in World War 2.

I hope my readers enjoy my journeys back into the dark days of the Cold War.
