I am an author and live in the north east of England. After working thirty-two years as a steelworker, I retired early to concentrate on writing. I have been writing approximately twelve years and have written twenty three novels and over fifty short stories. My main genre is psychological thrillers and horror, but I have published a biography of a friend and a war novel concerning the holocaust. My short storys, which are available free on ABC Tales and Nicestories include comedy, children's stories and even a couple of romantic ones. I have short stories in three anthologys with another three due out soon. My impatience with the mainstream publishers prompted me to self publish and I have recently published twenty books, which I have also converted into e-books. No doubt, I will publish more very soon.
