I was born in Essex in England and spent my early years working in London and its eastern suburbs before emigrating to Australia in 1972 with my wife and three children, where we settled in Adelaide. I have extensively traveled this country and the last twenty years of my working life was in the hospitality industry were I managed caravan parks, motels and resorts. I have been an avid reader most of my life and just after I retired I decided to attempt to write my first novel. Conscious of Guilt is set in London’s east end were I have called upon my past experiences and knowledge of the area and its unique peoples. I enjoyed bringing the characters in the book to life and I am currently working on a sequel.
