- I like words. For much of my working life, I have written them as a precursor to speaking them, but it was completing academic assignments that gave me the confidence that I could assemble them in a fit manner for others to read.
Of course, assignment composition is a far cry from writing novels but inspired by the likes of Morris West and Donna Leone and niggled by an under-exploited imagination, I thought it was worth a try.
Having risked launching into unknown waters, I felt it wise to play safe and write mostly about what I know. So, for my early novels, like me, my protagonist lives in a village to the west of York and works in the world of education. Unlike me, however, he has not been blessed with over forty years of marriage and three children.
