Profile Information

About Me:
I spent ten years churning out copy for one of Europe’s largest investment companies before I finally managed to break free of my shackles and slip away under cover of darkness. Having bade a life of financial security farewell, I then decided to pursue my lifelong dream of becoming an author.

I write fast paced crime thrillers set in the USA, as this genre has captivated me since my teenage years. My first novel, Justice For All, featured Zac Hunter, an uncompromising ex-cop who’s on a one-man mission to clean up the mean streets of Los Angeles. In the upcoming sequel, Blood Law, Hunter’s search for a missing child leads him into dangerous territory, and he soon finds himself caught in the middle of a gang war. Blood Law is released in the UK, Eire, and South Africa on 17th July 2009.

I am 37 years old, and I live in Norwich with my wife, Lisa, and our chocolate Labrador Murphy. I love reading crime fiction and I'm also a big fan of rock ‘n’ roll – everything from early Elvis right through to the Foo Fighters. I'm a sucker for all things Americana, and I'm currently working hard on my third novel.
I Am A:
Books And Authors I Like:
Andrew Vachss, John Connolly, Robert Crais, Tim Willocks, Michael Connelly, George Pelcanos, James Lee Burke, Harlan Coben, Steven Hunter, John Sandford, Lee Child, Steve Hamilton
Movies And TV Shows I Like:
The Sopranos, The Shield, The West Wing, The Wire, Deadwood, Oz

The Godfather, The Good, The Bad and the Ugly, Seven, Apocolypse Now, L.A. Confidential, Aliens, Pulp Fiction, Gladiator, Heat, Goodfellas, Reservoir Dogs

Reading Festival Review

This week’s blog is a special edition for two reasons; first, it’s all about the Reading Rock Festival, and second, it’s the last one I’m planning on writing for a while (but more on that later). So without further ado, here are my thoughts on this year’s Reading Fest.

Now if you’ve come here looking for an unbiased, objective account of the 2009 Reading Festival you’re shit out of luck, as I love this fest with every fibre of my being. As well as being the first one I ever attended… Continue

V Festival Review - Monday 24th August

Regular readers of this blog (if indeed such creatures exist) may have noticed that when it comes to reviewing bands my comments tend to be fairly positive (I’ve always worked on the principle that if I haven’t got something nice to say, I won’t say anything at all). Well no more. For one week only, I’m going to tell it like it is. Ladies and gentleman, please be upstanding for my V Festival Review (people of a nervous disposition should look away now).

V Festival, Chelmsford, 2009 –… Continue

Monday 17th August

Blood Law attracted some coverage in the national press this week, when the Daily Mirror newspaper ran a short and sweet review. Here’s what the Mirror had to say:

'Zac Hunter's welcome return in the sequel to Justice For All. This time the ex-LAPD cop infiltrates the gangs of south central to find the kidnapped daughter of a former grass. Gang warfare is about to kick off big time.’

Further publicity came from an interview I did with Rafe McGregor, which was posted on his… Continue

Monday 10th August

First this week, a quick reminder that I’ll be signing copies of Blood Law at the Norwich branch of Waterstones (Castle Street) on Saturday 15th August at 12 noon. If you’re in the area, please come along to grab a personalised copy of what’s sure to be one of the summer’s most action-packed reads! The last time I had a signing in my hometown the support from the local populace was humbling, so fingers crossed this one goes just as well.

On the publicity front, I appeared in an… Continue

Sonisphere Festival Review

Having had so much fun at Latitude a couple of weeks back, Lisa and I made a last minute decision to join our good friends Jay (part man, part cider drinking machine), Chris (my uber talented web designer) and Phil (the leather trousered wolfman) in attending the first ever Sonisphere Festival at Knebworth. Now the first thing you need to know about Sonisphere is that it RAWKS! When a band like Feeder are one of the lighter acts on the bill you know that you’re in for some serious riffage.… Continue

Hi Steve,

I absolutely loved 'Justice for All' a superb debut novel. Zac Hunter is a likeable villain, and I'm looking forward to meeting up with him again in your next book. Good luck with your next novel, hope to see you at Harrogate next year.

Best Maria

Hi Steve,
can't wait to read your new book.
One question--as I'm American resident in England--any research tips--?
Do you go to LA for research?!

Hey Steve -

JUSTICE FOR ALL looks fantastic. I'm going over to meet with the MIRA UK people in June, I'll have to snag a copy from them. Best of luck with your release, I'm sure we'll meet sooner or later.

Your right, I have been into action thrillers big time. Do you know a site that I can get your book. I didn't see it available on Amozon.
