If you like crime thriller novels, you’ve come to the right place. My earlier books were financial thrillers based on the greed and fear I witnessed while working in the financial markets, whereas my more recent crime novels appeal to a wider audience, particularly readers who like the works of John Grisham and Harlan Coben, or the TV crime writer Jed Mercurio. My latest crime thriller, Watch For Me, is about a female stalker on Vancouver Island and was published by US publisher Down and Out Books.
I began writing novels after a thirty year career as a private equity fund manager and corporate financier. Prior to co-founding a successful London-based private equity firm, I was a corporate finance partner at both KPMG and Ernst & Young and an investment management professional at Close Brothers and 3i Group.
Thanks for visiting. I hope you enjoy my books!
