I've written many novels, poetry and some hymns set to traditional tunes.
My favourite writers are Elliott O'Donnell, Dennis Wheatley and Jack Higgins, while my love affair with Ireland dominates most of my writing.
My inspiration is listening to old country music, both American and Irish, as it has been since my writing career began.
I currently reside in Thatcham, which is near Newbury in Berkshire.
