My first novel, 'More Than Love Letters' was published in paperback 2007, my second, 'Hearts and Minds', came out in 2008, my third, 'Crossed Wires', in 2009, and my fourth, entitled 'The Tapestry of Love', was published in paperback in October 2010 (all published by Headline Review). My fifth novel, 'Ninepins', was published by Sandstone Press in 2012, and won the East Anglian Book Awards prize for fiction in that year.My first collection of short stories, entitled 'Sandlands' is due for publication by Sandstone Press in July 2016. The stories are all set in, and take their inspiration from, the landscape of the Suffolk coast, with its paradoxical mixture of shifting sands and deep unchangeability. In what passes for real life I am a Fellow and lecturer in law at Emmanuel College, Cambridge. I live in a Cambridgeshire village with my partner and a small pack of spaniels. For my sins, I am also a season ticket holder at Ipswich Town FC.
