I used to be a police officer, starting in London and finishing as a DI at Moss Side in Manchester. When I left the police I started writing and have been writing ever since. Six manuscripts including a memoir, From Cop to Coppicer. After 10 years of trying, my debut novel was published in 2020 – a crime thriller called The Trail.
I now wear two hats; in addition to writing, I run a smallholding. I live in the Peak District with my wife. We’re self-sufficient in fruit and veg, and keep chickens and bees (turkeys at Christmas!). My passion is fruit trees, especially apples.
I’m also a keen mountaineer, and an experienced public speaker.
I may be available at short notice, it is always worth contacting me if you have been let down.
About my Talk...
I will bring a projector and laptop with my talks on PowerPoint. I will need a screen / wall to project onto.
I can also deliver talks ‘stand alone’ which is often required for After Dinner and Luncheon presentations or where the venue is not suitable for presenting an illustrated talk.
£75 Plus mileage costs from my home in Hayfield, Derbyshire SK22; the nearest town is Glossop and I’m prepared to travel 90 minutes, possibly further depending on the size of audience and appropriate travel expenses.
