about me

I have always wanted to 'become' an author. Now I know that you don't become an author, you either are one, or you aren't, published or not.
When I was 9, I sent some homemade books to Heinemann asking them to publish them. They declined, but with a personal note that they were sure I'd get published one day!
The Thought Shapers is undergoing revisions. I am half way through writing the sequel about which a reader for The Literacy Consultancy said, 'I am in awe, frankly.'.If you are interested in reading either The Thought Shapers, or its sequel, Dreamcatcher, please contact me.

I very much appreciate all the comments I've had on The Thought Shapers, It is now stronger so thank you all.

favourite books

So many, I could never mention them all. Here are some books that have grabbed me in one way or the other over the last year or two.
Cloud Atlas - David Mitchell - I admire the deft way he handles so many voices.
The Time Traveller's Wife - Audrey Niffenegger - how does she manage that timeline? I loved the characters and cried - lots.
His Dark Materials - Philip Pullman - great ideas, fantasy on a huge scale.

I nearly backed you on your CV alone! But have had a look at chapter one and it's well written so I'm happy to back this. I admire you for asking for constructive criticism - most people here want nothing of the kind...(I do - but then I've been here a long time and had lots). However, I'm sorry b... view book

Hi - I enjoyed the first chapter of your book, and love anything with mysterious books in. It also reads smoothly. Backed! ;) view book

I wrote 1374 days ago

Hi - I enjoyed the beginning of this - read the preface and the first chapter. The preface seems quite unconventional to me - a character talking generally about love etc - but I'm not so familiar with this genre, and it certainly pulled me in. There's a definite voice there. I think there is a bi... view book

Hi Simon, I enjoyed your set up here, and liked the idea of Luke getting carried away during a concert, all too easy to do. ;) I wonder if he should be one year older, it seems pretty young to be going to a concert on his own...? Backed. Tricia. view book

Hi, I ilked the name of the city, and the Realm Riders idea, and the feeling that they weren't quite telling the truth... many of the descriptions were great - liked the inside of the tower with its black walls, but would take out the clenched heart. I would edit and prune some back story out of th... view book
