Death, Lies, and Duct Tape Hi there, Well, in Brittany, we're edging into spring and as usual, the weather can't make up its mind what to do--sunny and almost warm one minute, and perishing cold or wet the next. The joys of a maritime climate! That being said, I don't mind the cold too much as I love to snuggle up warm and cosy and spend the long, dark nights reading. And that's the main point of this bulletin. I'm delighted to announce that my novel, The DCI Jones Casebook: Sean Freeman, is part of [...]

Christmas lunch on the beach. However and whatever you celebrate, please have a happy time. Compliments of the Season. Happy Winterval. Merry Christmas, and ... For Pete's sake (whomever Pete might be), [...]

New Publication - The Collection Hi there, To celebrate my birthday, I've released a new book!. It's a collection of short stories, cunningly entitled … wait for it … THE COLLECTION. What’s in The Collection, you ask? Inside, you’ll find twenty-nine short stories and micro stories. There are humorous tales, biographical shorts, pure fiction pieces, and longer stories written to chill the blood. The Chamber, for example, the longest in THE COLLECTION, is one of the darkest stories I’ve ever written. Please don’t read this to your children at bedtime. I do hope you enjoy [...]

Hi guys, 2016 already? How the heck did that happen? It seems as though we were only celebrating the New Millennium a couple of years ago. Time marches, nay, sprints along. Jan and I, the wanderer, are safely home after our recent 16-hour journey (drive-ferry-drive) from Cheshire (UK) to Brittany (France). A kindly neighbour lit our paraffin heater a couple of hours before our return so at least the temperature in our front room had crawled above freezing point. The rest of the house though, was Arctic. From the above, you may have gathered that we don’t have central heating here in the [...]
Hi guys, It’s been a while since I blogged. No excuses, I’ve been busy working on my latest novel, On Lucky Shores. It’s an adventure yarn set in the Colorado Rockies. Well, I finished the latest draft last Friday and sent the manuscript to my editor. Nothing I can do now but wait for her to hack it to pieces and return it (I can almost hear her cackling as she hits ‘send’). But more of that in another blog, this one’s about something completely different. Now, you know me, right? I’m a hard-arsed, insular, old-fashioned dude. I write crime [...]
