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, will be released on 15th April 2021. For preorder links, see below.  

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