I was born in Pembrokeshire, Wales, and grew up in Tenby, but later emigrated to the United States, where I lived for over forty years before returning to Wales in 2003, when I began writing books, mostly historical and modern thrillers.
An information scientist by profession, I was a research assistant at Stanford University, California, before working for an international aid organization, providing the necessary technical information for their field projects in developing countries. I also owned my own database development company and very briefly ran a small newspaper on the island of Jamestown, in Rhode Island, in between times writing satirical articles for newspapers. One of my most enjoyable occupations, though, was running a bed and breakfast in Narragansett -- The Old Clerk House, for twelve years.
Widely travelled, and an avid sailor and photographer, my life experiences have supplied ample fodder for my novels. Both of my most recent -- “Voyage into Limbo” and “Hurricane Justice” -- were selected by the online review site, The Bookbag, as one of their top ten self- published books of 2014 and 2017, while my photographs were used as a backdrop for a presentation given at the New York Public Library in 2009.
