About the author

Over the years, I've been fortunate enough to have work published alongside some of the biggest names in crime fiction as well as in a host of wonderful places.

My most recent work involves a series called Southsiders, published by Blasted Heath. It's set in Scotland's capital city, Edinburgh, and follows the adventures of the protagonist and Elvis fanatic Jesse Garon Spalding as tries to survive the pitfalls of growing up in a world of chaos.

Blasted Heath also published my novella Smoke ('Grim, but really good.' Ian Rankin).

Though much of my work inhabits the world of crime, I have also published a romance called How To Choose A Sweetheart.

My short fiction has appeared in two editions of The Mammoth Book Of Best British Mysteries (volumes 8 and 9), in Crimespree Magazine, The Reader Magazine and Needle: A Magazine Of Noir; and Protectors among many others.
