I'm a former broadcaster and journalist with the BBC, but I have also worked as a primary school teacher, a disc jockey, a shopkeeper, a waiter and a sales rep.
I wrote my first book at the age of 9 years old on a Basildon Bond notepad.
Titled 'Mr Plum And Mr Apple', the hand written story received the inevitable rejection slip, but that didn't stop me dabbling with writing throughout my life.
The Secret Bunker Trilogy was inspired by a family visit to a remarkable, real-life secret bunker at Troywood, Fife.
I love dystopian fiction so this trilogy has been a great opportunity to finally come up with my own vision of a future world where things are going haywire.
My next dystopian project was 'The Grid' which was based around an initial idea that appeared in The Secret Bunker.
I've just moved into writing thrillers, fuelled by my childhood love of The Famous Five, Agatha Christie and James Hadley Chase.
These days I read Harlan Coben, Linwood Barclay and Mark Edwards and this is the tone I'm aiming for in my own books.
