My first book, “A Hell for Heroes”, was an autobiography. However, my subsequent books are all works of fiction. Having spent twenty-two years in the military, most of them with Special Forces, I have accumulated a wealth of knowledge and experience which now forms the backbone of the stories I write.
They are based around actual events, and the settings, locations and descriptions are all real. Where the locations have had a name change, I have used the name that was authentic at that time. Likewise my characters, although none is referred to by their real names, are all based on genuine people who have either enriched or coloured my life.
In some limited cases, real individuals do appear, but their actions and conversations, unless accurately reported at the time, are entirely fictitious.
I make no apologies for my work. For me, storytelling is all about the content: providing the reader with an absorbing story that will encourage them to ask questions, and consider the implications of an alternative outcome.
