Additional Information

I've had a few difficult years one way and another. Boho/Bluechrome press took a couple of years slowly going into receivership - while I had 4 books with them. Latterly BeWrite Books has undergone major reorganisation, and it too is about to cease trading March 31st 2013. I'm no longer therefore their poetry editor. BeWrite did though bring out a second edition of 'The Secret Report of Friar Otto'. Phew! Friar Otto has since then got wonderful reviews. I can only hope that Endeavour Press take it on as they have 'Marks' - releasing it under the new title 'Hit and Run'

Most of my books are there.

Online Originals
they submitted my novel, Sister Blister, for the 2000 Booker Prize; and in 2004 brought it out in a very handsome hardback edition.

David took on my novel, Something's Wrong, and designed - design is his forte - an ace cover for it.
