ABOUT ME

me

I was born in England and am now on the lam in Poland.

My first job was on a government scheme updating Ordnance Survey Maps (it wasn’t as glamorous as it sounds).

I’ve also worked in a second-hand record shop, as a welfare rights worker &  played bass in a couple of unsuccessful  post-punk bands.

I’ve been TEFL teaching for more than a decade and still seem to be getting away with it.

I’m the author of  Guns Of Brixton , Cold London Blues, The Neon Boneyard, The Last Laugh, and Other Shots Of Noir, The Gumshoe, and Other Brit Grit Yarns, A Case Of Noir, 13 Shots Of Noir and KIll Me Quick!

Oh, and there are a few other tasty snacks that you can find here. GOB paperback

My writing has quite shockingly been translated into Italian, Finnish, German and Slovene. I know!

The Neon BoneyardI’ve had stories published in various magazines and anthologies, including The Mammoth Book Of Best British Crime 8, 10 and 11 – alongside the likes of  Lee Child, Ian Rankin and Neil Gaiman.  Which is nice.

exiles pbkI also edited the anthologies Exiles: An Outsider Anthology , The Neon Moon and  True Brit Grit (with Luca Veste).

Oh, and I have an irregular column – Brit Grit Alley – at  Out Of The Gutter Online.

I’m a member of International Thriller Writers Inc

You can usually  find me faffing around at  Twitter and Facebook, as well as other such rum joints. I don’t half put it about,eh?
