My Work

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.

  1. I’m looking for a copy of your book “From the Corners of a Wounded Mind” in connection with a research project on male survivors. How can I get in touch with you? Thanks. Larry

    • Hi Larry, “Corners” as I refer to it was the forerunner to “A Hello for Heroes”. It was picked up by Hodder and Stoughton who wanted to publish it, but as it was only 15k words they wanted a lot more, the end result was the 100k word “Heroes”, they also wanted “Corners” removed from the shelves, everything that was in “Corners” can be found in “Heroes” but in a lot more detail. I hope this helps, if you need to get in touch with me, leave a comment on the blog with your email address, I will take note of it, and then use it to contact you. I will NOT publish the comment, thus protecting you from the idiots out there. You take care.
