About me

I’m a founder director of 26. I write for some nice companies and for some old friends. I train people to be more effective, more creative writers, particularly through the Dark Angels courses I run with Jamie Jauncey and Stuart Delves www.dark-angels.org.uk. I’ve written half a dozen books – with the Dark Angels trilogy republished in 2016: We, Me, Them & It, The Invisible Grail and Dark Angels about writing better in the business world. My real love is fiction and I’ve had two novels published: Leaves in 2015, Spanish Crossings in 2017, both published by Urbane. I was also one of the 15 writers who created the collective novel Keeping Mum, published by Unbound in 2014.
