Here it is, the jacket cover for the NEW Inspector Horton Marine Mystery - Dead Man's Wharf- the fourth in the series. It will be published on 30 April 2009. It looks pretty sinister to me and I hope you like it. Let me know what you think.

This morning, long before the sun rise, I travelled to the BBC studios in Southampton for the Radio Solent Christmas Breakfast Party to celebrate BBC Radio Solent's 100 Lives Project.

I have just received the Polish copy of my thriller, In Cold Daylight, renamed Fire and Water in Poland (Ogien i Woda) and it looks fantastic.

In Cold Daylight was published in Poland today. Renamed Fire And Water ( Ogien i Woda) this is the second of my marine mystery crime novels to be published in Polish. It is always very exciting to see your work translated into another language and I was also thrilled to receive an e mail from Polish journalist, Anna Kutrzuba, who interviewed me for an article on the book's release. She's written a lovely piece and the article is laid out… Continue

What's good enough for Dan Brown and Random House is good enough for me. Random House US is launching a major advertising campaign in the USA on 23 November, with Dan Brown and other notables from the world of fiction, showing consumers that books make an ideal Christmas present. So, in my own little way I thought I'd beat the drum for the UK.

I’ve just received from my publisher my copies of the Large Print version of Deadly Waters, which is now on sale. It looks really good and I hope it enables people who are visually impaired (sadly a growing number) to enjoy this marine mystery crime novel.

I have set my Marine Mystery crime novels on the south coast of England where the sea becomes the backdrop to murder, treachery, deceit, betrayal, evil and revenge. They feature the flawed and rugged detective DI Andy Horton. He’s tough as a container ship, having dredged through the sludge of life's sewerage, since childhood. Abandoned by his mother when he was ten, with no knowledge of his father , Horton turns from battling with crime on the… Continue

It’s hectic on the writing front at the moment with time off for a quick photoshoot for a newspaper. I am currently writing the fifth DI Horton Marine Mystery, as well as revising three of my business books which are set for publication in May 2009. The fourth DI Horton Marine Mystery is currently with my publisher and I am keeping my fingers crossed that they don’t want too many revisions. My new author web site is being developed and that always… Continue

In August I was commissioned to write a murder mystery play. More used to penning crime novels this is my first serious play and I thoroughly enjoyed writing it. It began with an e mail in August asking writers for submissions for a new murder mystery play to be performed by professional actors and actresses in the autumn. Deadlines were extremely tight. I needed to know more.

I never thought I’d say it but I’m pining for the Frankfurt Book Fair. Here's a photo of me at the 2007 Frankfurt Book Fair. It is the first time in four years that I won’t be going. I didn’t think I would miss the experience especially after last year when the German train drivers decided to go on strike. We were staying in a lovely hotel in Bad Nauheim, (where we always stay because it overlooks the most fantastic park) but this meant we had… Continue
