Love Lviv

This is a video I shot over a couple of afternoons in the beautiful city of Lviv, Ukraine. The idea is just to give a sense of what it was like there in summer 2014.

Lightship Anthology 2

Not too long ago I was shortlisted for the Lightship International Literary Prize. The rounded up all the winners and nearly-made-its and put us in a lovely paperback published by Alma Books. My story's called Durban Poison, a tale about schizophrenia in late 1980s South Africa. I haven't had a chance to read the other stories yet, but I'm looking forward to delving into the book. If you're interested in what looks like a good mix of first chapters, poems and short stories, you can buy Lightship Anthology 2 from or directly from Alma.

The Illegal - Kindle Novel

It’s Kate Walker’s first day as a member of the Home Office Enforcement Team and she not only has to evict an illegal immigrant from his home, but from the country. 

The problem is that the immigrant, Vincent Mpolo, doesn’t want to comply. He manages to escape and Kate is blamed for his flight. 

When it is discovered that Vincent left a dead body behind, Kate decides that she has to track him down, even if it means breaking the law in the process. Professional pride is at stake and something else too: Kate isn’t entirely sure that Vincent is the murderer. 

Her search takes her to the UK border and she soon finds out that it’s one thing for an illegal immigrant to enter the country, but quite another to escape. 

The Illegal is a fast-paced thriller set in North East England. It is a full-length novel.

Clan Fraser, Once Removed

A bittersweet comedy, more bitter than sweet, about two brothers on a road trip through Scotland. 

Richard is miserable. Only, he doesn’t know it. He’s a graphic designer at Newcastle upon Tyne’s hottest hot-shop and thinks the world revolves around him and his job.

But now he has to take two weeks off work because his brother Charlie is coming to visit from South Africa. Half-strangled by his umbilical cord at birth, Charlie’s a bit different. To Richard he’s an embarrassment, and the idea of a road trip to a castle that bears their family name doesn’t exactly set off fireworks.

While stopping over at a hotel in Scotland, Richard meets Dot, who works on reception and is bored enough to talk to anyone, even a self-centred designer. He falls in love. Now all he has to do is convince her that, deep down, he’s a nice person. And that means he has to get along with Charlie.


Yeovil Literary Prize 2011 – Highly Commended 


‘Urban, spiky and smart. The writing style is fluid and it grabs you from the get go. Recommended!’ – Darren Floyd, author of Match Days.
