Background Information

I have always been fascinated by off-beat characters and off-beat ideas - perhaps because of my upbringing in a fringe religious movement. My first foray into publishing was with a critical history of the Jehovah's Witnesses. That led to various spin-off articles and lectures but my writing has since then taken me into fiction.It's still the off-beat, however.

Peter Bunderlin, the main character in the novel which I hope to publish before long, is definitely no run-of-the-mill guy. He's compulsive, obsessive and manipulative. And he's a convicted arsonist. But he's the hero. Other folk are the bad guys.

Foresters, which I'm working on now follows the story of Tom Westwood as he tries to find outwhat became of Susan, a girl friend from years ago, who tried to break free from the confines of an authoritarian cult.

I guess my fiction should appeal to readers who enjoy such writers as Nick Hornby or Mark Haddon. But there's also a touch - just a touch - of influence from Charles Dickens who remains my all time hero of the literary world.
