Welcome to my site, a place where all my activities as a writer are explained. I’ve been writing for some years now, and become a specialist in crime history and biography. I hope that, whatever your tastes in the wide spectrum of my writing, there will be something here to interest you.
Coming up in the next twelve months or so are these titles: Famous Prisoners of Wormwood Scrubs (Chaplin Books), a new account of Sarah Jacob, the Welsh Fasting Girl of 1869, whose story hit the headlines for several months, to be called The Girl Who Lived on Air (Seren) and a book of historical mystery stories called A Thief in The Night (The Mystery Press).
At the moment I’m working on a book on Grimsby in the Great War and a social history of women in the criminal justice system since Victorian times.
