‘Delightful: amusing, entertaining and often very moving … quintessentially English’

Garry Craig Powell, Rain Taxi

‘Wonderfully wry’

Nick Hallissey, Country Walking

Narrative non-fiction: I wander, I write. Come and peek inside my notebook – Not Quite Lost, Travels Without A Sense of Direction.

Writer, journalist, interviewer

I love creative people. I interview 3D artists for Adobe’s Substance magazine (here is one and here’s another). I also interview novelists, memoirists, poets and other creative scribblers on my blog.


Sometimes I am a ghostwriter

I’ve collaborated on a number of books by the famous and notorious, including a dozen novels. Spines and covers must remain hidden because, well, you’re not meant to know. Millions of readers have enjoyed my words – and that’s no exaggeration because average sales were 500,000 copies each.



Speaker, tutor and writing coach

I’m an experienced speaker, tutor and writing coach. I teach creative writing masterclasses for The Guardian newspaper in London and have spoken at a range of writing and publishing events. I help writers on an individual consultancy basis and a recent client won the Roald Dahl Funny Prize. I have a show on Surrey Hills Radio, So You Want To Be A Writer.


And sometimes I indulge my inner hooligan:

I write books slowly. You probably won’t see a new release from me before a year or two has passed (recent releases here). But I’ve always got creative adventures to share in my newsletter and I’m producing new work regularly in the online world, blogging, broadcasting, teaching and I love a chat on Facebook or Twitter. Here are my regular haunts.
