About Me

Welcome to my website. Here you will find information and updates about my books, such as cover reveals and publication dates. Thank you for visiting and I hope you find the site, and my books, interesting.

I live in a small village in the lovely county of Cumbria, although all my books are set in Oxfordshire where I was born and raised.

I served in the Royal Navy for 6 six years, had a variety of other jobs, and then raised my two daughters alone after being widowed. I finally took the plunge and self-published two books on Amazon, The Revelation Room and The Eyes of the Accused in 2016.

I’ve always had a keen interest in writing, and I’m extremely proud to have returned to self-publishing after having 7 novels published by Bloodhound Books. I have re-released all 7 novels myself, and they have been given amazing new covers by the highly talented, Emmy Ellis. A new book is coming early 2021!

When I’m not writing, you can find me exploring and taking walks around the beautiful county of Cumbria.

Thanks for taking the time to look around the site.

  2. Hello Mark… Found you via my friend who retweeted a blog on twitter… You have so many helpful links, i’ve joined some communities and followed you on your media links… IAM preparing to publish my own first book after the summer, so expanding my friendship base…. New website is being built. I do have one question for you as I see you distribute through smash words… I was all prepared to do this but read marks american points that I have to apply for a tin no as a foreigner to be able to distribute it via them. I really don’t want to have to do this for personal reasons… Do you know of any other way or did you do this? Also do you print paper backs and who did you find to do it… IAM looking at ingramspark. Nice to meet you and here’s to a good friendship… IAM a fellow English lady born in Derbyshire ½ a century ago… Barbara

    • Hello Barbara,

      Thank you for taking the time to comment and hope you find the links in the posts useful.
      I didn’t have any trouble uploading my book onto Smashwords. I had to make sure that I used one of their free ISBN numbers as the retailers they send the book to request they have them. I gave Smashwords my PAYPAL e-mail to have my royalties paid to me. Smashwords is well laid out but if had any questions it’d be best to ask them before trying to upload your book.
      I currently only sell ebooks, but I’m looking into Amazon’s print on demand service, which I believe print a single book each time one is ordered, for a small fee. It’s the service that the majority of authors use.

      I hope all goes well with your book and it’s nice to meet you too.


    • Thanks for stopping by Francis. Your site is a fantastic resource for all authors struggling with social media.

      All the best,
