12 Gardening books published so far, major publishers. Enough is enough - now is the time for novels! Try LOBSTER NIGHTS for a foggy winter's night.


Background Information

Started out as a botanist, though one always reading way off-topic.  After various university degrees (have a doctorate in botany), started writing about gardens - of which I've had several, always centred around interesting old houses.  I've had columns in various UK national papers, including the Sunday Times.  I still write occasionally for that and for the Guardian.

After twelve books and a thousand articles, I felt like a change. 

Then, on a hot night in Morocco, my Narrator arrived.  She turned out to be interested in a lot of the research I'd done for DANGEROUS GARDEN (Harvard University Press), but her voice had rather the accent of Muriel Spark, and a tinge of Virginia Woolf.  The plot has the darkness and humour of ... well, you decide on LOBSTER NIGHTS.  Poisons.  Morocco.  London.  New York.  A school for wicked women.  The Sisterhood.  Fortune telling.  Murder.  And more.

My agent thought : What a novel idea!  I loved the concept and the storyline.  How wickedly amusing and delightful – reminds me of the old Ealing Studios movies
where you cannot but love the murderers because they’re all so likeable
and funny….  However, do I read it right that you kill The Narrative off in the end?
Rather a shame because it’ll be great to have the opportunity of making
a series of this character and the Sisterhood, maybe even to become
murderers for good causes?

If you'd like to see the synopsis, and a few chapters, go to http://lobsternights.wordpress.com

I now garden in London, Lincolnshire and the Scottish borders.

Additional Information

Vastly excited by the fun of self-publishing, I'm busy on a sequel to Lobster Nights, and ideas for something exciting after that!
