About the author

I worked in advertising before becoming a teacher and taught for many years, most recently at St Paul's School in London, where I was Head of Sixth Form. I've published two novels - 'No Regrets' (2013) and '10 Things To Do Before You Leave School' (2019) and in 2021 Muswell Press will publish 'The Final Round', the first in a series of crime novels featuring DI Garibaldi. 

I live in Barnes (where 'The Final Round' is set) and when I'm not writing cheer myself up by watching QPR and listening to Leonard Cohen. I have few claims to fame, but count playing football with Nick Hornby, giving Clare Balding interview practice, teaching members of Mumford and Sons and Noah and The Whale, having lunch with George Best and nearly being recruited as a spy as some of my most significant achievements.
