I was born in Hartlepool, England, and now live in Bydgoszcz, Poland. I’ve worked in a second-hand record shop and a toy shop. I once had a job on a government training scheme updating ordnance survey maps. It wasn’t as glamourous as it sounds.  I’ve been TEFL teaching for more than a decade, it seems.

My books include Last Year’s Man, Supernatural Noir and Gumshoe Blues.

Oh, and there are a few other tasty snacks that you can find here. 

My writing has, quite remarkably, been translated into Italian, Polish, Finnish, German and Slovene. Which is nice.

I’ve had stories published in various magazines and anthologies, including The Mammoth Book Of Best British Crime 8, 10 and 11.
