About The Author

A lifelong hobby scribbler, I consider To Run Before the Sea my first quality work, and Rosie Winterbourne, my most exciting prime character.

 I am currently (Oct ’20) polishing up the sequel, The Travel Agent - in which Rosie reinvents herself as an undercover agent - for release in December 2020. A third book, The Conflicted Bride will come out in April 2021, and several more Rosie Winterbourne stories will follow.

As for myself, I divide my time between working at my home in Elgin, cycling around the Highlands, and cruising the Atlantic/Caribbean islands in my yacht, Island Spirit. In past lives, I served twenty-five years in the Royal Navy and then another twenty as Director of a computer software company in the Midlands.
