Bio: Born in the North of England a long time ago, or at least it seems that way, but I have lived in Wales for more than half my life. These days, together with my partner Patricia, I spend about half of the year in Southern Spain (the weather?s so much better.) I have had a varied career, working as a musician and singer for many years, but also as an engineer in a steel mill. (I said it was varied.) I have been writing for quite a few years, but only recently turned to fiction.
