I was born and raised in Birmingham, England, where I was educated at King Edward's Grammar School, Aston. I am married, with two grown-up daughters. A keen photographer, having had photographs published, I enjoy also cinema and theatre. A great follower of football or soccer as some call it, I am a long-time supporter of Birmingham-based professional club, Aston Villa, still regularly attending matches at their Villa Park home ground. Hit-And-Run Man is my first novel.
