Born in Cairo, Egypt, I came to Britain during winter and saw my first view of snow! My English Dad fell in love with my beautiful Greek Mum in Athens during the war and wrote her a forty page love-letter when fighting in the desert so I guess writing is in my genes! I wrote my first novel in an exercise-book at sixteen and many others after that but then gave up writing for a long time. Now retired and living in Malvern,the muse has returned. I've since written and published The Long Shadow,The Crimson Bed, Middle Watch and Dying Phoenix.

The Long Shadow is now published in Greek by Oceanida.gr and is in its third English edition, printed by Matador http://www.troubador.co.uk. It is also available as a Kindle edition. My favourite story and dear to my Greek heart! Next year will see the centenary of WW1 and this novel explores the Eastern Campaign in Salonika, a theatre of the war seldom discussed or explored. I hope that many people will now take an interest in this 'sideshow' of the Great War - which was anything but that.

The sequel to The Long Shadow is my story, Dying Phoenix. This story is set in Greece during the time of the Colonels' takeover in April 1967. I began this story a while ago but it is now oddly apt considering the present dilemmas faced by the Greek people.
