Hi, thanks so much for stopping by.
I live in, Dénia, a town sitting at the edge of Spain’s eastern coastline.
After the Navy I went to work for a travel company as an overseas representative and spent seasons in the Balearic Islands, Canary Islands, and North Africa.
I spent twelve years as a bodyguard for a Saudi Princess. I travelled extensively, met a lot of interesting people, and spent a lot of time just waiting for my Princess to get out of bed before long days of clothes shopping and cake eating! This was their life, not one I would have chosen for myself.
Later, I found a new career as a cabin-crew member for British Airways, Worldwide fleet.
Unfortunately, I had an accident on board a flight. The aircraft, a Boeing 747, was flying at 39,000 feet above Africa when it was caught in clear-air turbulence. As the plane dropped, my body flew upwards, and only stopped flying when my head hit the ceiling. The way I see it, it could have been worse. I could have gone through the ceiling. As a result of this accident I had to have three major operations on my spinal cord at the neck, and they heralded the end of my wandering days.
My book, The Guardian of Secrets, was first published in 2013, and it also has a completed screenplay. It’s a #1 international bestseller and a multi award winning book. Dark Shadows and Blood Moon: The Mercy Carver Series were both published in 2014 and they are an Amazon #1 bestselling series and international award winners. The Errant Flock (The Flock Trilogy Book 1) is a multi award winning historical thriller, and #1 bestselling book. The Scattered Flock is also an award winner and was followed by Flock, The Gathering of The Damned in June 2017. Swearing Allegiance, a WWI family saga, was released in March 2016 and is a Bestseller and multi award winning book, including The Outstanding Historical Book of 2017 at the IAN Awards. Coming early 2018, The German Half-Bloods
I have always believed that with one life to live, one should make the best of a bad situation, whatever that may be, but what I didn’t know when I hung up my uniform for the last time was that writing books would give me the greatest journey of all.
