I am the author of several military history books
published by Pen and Sword with net royalties donated to military charities
or towards memorials. I am also a partner in Military Lives which specialises
in military biographies and village and town heritage books. (www.militarylives.co.uk) To pay the
bills I write historical fiction and these are published by GWL Publishing. I
worked for several years in the Military Corrective Training Centre in
Colchester as a Housing Officer and I am now a Trustee of Help4Homeless
Veterans, a charity based in Barnsely.

Workshop & Reading Experience
I have only done a couple of book talks but do attend
events regularly where I talk to people on an individual basis. Whilst working
at the Military Corrective Training Centre I used to deliver a talk each week
to new admissions about housing so I am used to speaking to large groups
although I am a little out of practice.
I don't have any references for talking about my books
yet but as I worked with vulnerable people in the Military Corrective Training
Centre I had both security and DBS
Group size preference
No preference although I live in North Lincolnshire so
would prefer a larger group rather than one or two people.
Group age preference
Area prepared to travel
Happy to consider anything.
