I’m a Londoner but spent much of my working life abroad, including nearly 20 years living in California. I retired recently after a career in academia, consultancy and business. I have always written. I found business meetings particularly conducive to letting my mind wander, as I made up stories about the others in the room and other characters I invented. Some of those stories are now materialising. I have written for radio, had my work performed on stage and have the statistically average three abandoned novels. I also have two novels in progress.
