Hello and Welcome

Thank  you for visiting my website. I am a writer based in Kent. My first book, a crime novel set in my county, is called Smile Of The Stowaway. It concerns an English couple who return from holiday to find a strange man climbing out from beneath their vehicle. After finding him shelter and a job, their new friend becomes a police suspect. The novel was inspired by a newspaper report by me which appeared in several national newspapers a few years ago about a stowaway.
