My novel is called The Shock of the Fall. It’s dead good and I would love for you read it. You can buy it from Amazon (who avoid paying tax) or from your local independent bookshop.shockofthefall2-300x300

I write other stuff too, such as newspaper articles on the state of mental health care, human rights issues, and various other things that are important to me. You can read some of these here.

Take a look around this site to find out more about me and my writing, and please feel free to get in touch.
