He gives library talks, does book signings and appears on radio and in literary festivals. A Doctorate in Mathematics, he lives with his partner in plain sight of the Mendip Hills.

What They Say:

The Coronation… explores the themes of belonging / outsiders, politics, religion / spirituality, war and the lives of everyday people, all of which are filtered through the lens of the other-worldly.” Andrew Deane, Page Farer Book Blog.
