Over the years, my website has accumulated an archive of short pieces of prose, each of which can be read in the time it takes to drink a cup of tea. Most deal with the art and craft of writing, though some wander away up side paths. This archive can be accessed via the Writing Life tabs.

Because my love of images is almost as great as my love of words, I post whatever catches my eye to Instagram .

I can be contacted direct or through my literary agent. I hope you find something on the site to enjoy.

If we are lucky, we will reach old age, and if we are luckier still we may take comfort from precious, close relationships. But love among the elderly may not be straightforward, especially in an aged care setting.

As Valentine's Day approaches, my essay explores the complexities of love in old age, and argues for the rights of the elderly to consenting, romantic relationships.

The Silver Moth Book Cover Image

The Silver Moth was published on 23rd of September 2022 after many years in the making. It is a sequel to Elizabeth Goudge's classic children's book The Little White Horse, a favourite of my own childhood, and I am thrilled to have been given permission to write it.

Readers familiar with the original will recognise the magical setting of Moonacre. This time the manor house, empty for many years and a bit rundown, is no less enchanting, as an elderly Maria Merryweather arrives with her granddaughter, Rose, to escape the bombs falling on London during the First World War. Rose soon settles in, and with the help of a host of kindred spirits, both animal and human, sets about re-negotiating peace with the ever troublesome de Noir clan, and solving the mystery surrounding the Silver Moth aeroplane.

I write a lot, and often end up with more words than I know what to do with. These blogs are the overspill.
