After a busy life working in various government and corporate roles I retired some 16 years ago, and again found time to read and write for pleasure.
Brought up on the South Coast by parents with agricultural roots, I developed a love of heavy horses which has stayed with me for my whole life. My latest book, set in the late 1700s and early 1800s brings home to the reader just how crucial these gentle giants were to the development of modern Britain.
In addition to writing about rural affairs I also write humorous books, and my series of Peckham novels has been favourably received by readers and other authors alike.
When not writing, I am Chairman of the Biggin Hill Society, and an active grandparent.
