About The Author

I am part time in the workforce and a part-time author these days, although writing has formed a large part of my career for many decades. As a business analyst since the early ‘eighties, I wrote countless system specifications, user manuals, training guides, funding proposals, reports, agendas, minutes… After a four-year interlude in Customer Services I am now working in Information Technology again (it seems I can’t keep away so I must be suited to it). And for many years there was nothing better than to read a well-crafted nove and take an exciting journey to a distant place or time. I knew what I liked and what I didn’t like, but writing a novel didn’t cross my mind until relatively recently. The combination of too many years writing dry, technical documents and a visit to the local library where I couldn’t find a book that interested me led me consider a new pastime. Write a book. That book may never be published, but I felt my follow-up cross-cultural romance-crime hybrid set in Russia had more potential. So much so that I wrote a sequel that took those characters on a journey to a very dark place.

The opening of the Red Sun Will Come came to me in a dream, and to this day I have no idea why Moscow. I had never been there before, but during the course of developing this novel we did visit Russia, and my wife and I both fell in love with Moscow. It is a world city: exciting, dynamic, visually beautiful and more What better setting for a romance with many difficulties?

Beyond part-time work and part-time writing I enjoy travel, and especially riding my Triumph motorcycle.

But writing is my favourite pastime, both at work and at home, and I have many more tales that I would like to tell. Keep in touch to see where my next journey will take you. Visit the author’s site at
