Welcome

I’m a retired veterinary surgeon living with my family on our farm amongst the rolling hills of County Down, Northern Ireland. 

Since 2014, I’ve been writing fiction, and in 2020 I was signed up by Joffe Books to write crime novels, the first of which, Knife Edge, is due to be published very soon. 

You can read a bit more about me here, and contact me here. I also write the occasional blog post.
