I am a crime fiction author with a Crime Writing MA from City University.
PROXIMITY was my thrilling debut novel, inspired by the fascinating possibilities of technology, AI and the law of unintended consequences published on 6 June 2019.
NO SIGNAL, book two in the iMe series, is published on 4 June 2020 and asks: Can a game change the world?
In a past life, I had a successful career in investment management, and now live in Surrey with my wife. I have two great children and dog. Outside of my family and writing, my loves are snowboarding, old cars and bikes.

5* Review ’The writing hurtles along like a runaway train and you can barely pause for breath. What renders it original and ingenious is the background of embedded technology called ‘iMe’ (how perfect is that?!) It’s a crime thriller and it is very thrilling.’ Gill Chedgey (NB Magazine)
