My Occupation Semi-retired writer
My Bio I started writing professionally in 1996 and have had hundreds of articles published. Many can be found on my website. I have had a non-fiction true crime work published called The Camden Town Murder, a famous unsolved crime from 1907 (available on Amazon). My first novel was published on-line in US only and following the collapse of the company this is now being hawked around agents although might appear on Blurb. Look out for A Little Local Affair. My writing career was interrupted when I became Town Centre Manager in my home town of Hertford but happier back writing and you can keep up with my thoughts on my home page and links to regular blog.
