I’ve been been writing for over thirty years.  I realized my unhip credentials were mounting so I decided to write about it. Little Guide to Unhipis published by Night Publishing

However, I’m not completely unhip. My punk novel, Fall Of The Flamingo Circuswas published by Allison & Busby (1990) and by Villard (American hardback 1990). Skrev Press published my novels Seaview Terrace (2003) Sucka!(2004) and Break Point(2006) and other shorter work has appeared in Skrev’s avant garde magazine Texts’ Bonesincluding a version of my satirical novella Lost The Plot. 

Thalidomide Kid was published by Bewrite Books (2007).

I’ve had other short stories published and shortlisted including Hard Workers and Headboards, first published in The Diva Book of Short Stories and now published as part of the Dancing In The Dark erotic anthology, Pfoxmoor Publishing (2011)

I also received a Southern Arts bursary for my novel Where A Shadow Played (now renamed ‘Did You Whisper Back?).

I’m gradually in the process of getting most of my books published and previously unpublished work onto Kindle and Smashwords.
