After more than twenty-five years as a successful freelance journalist, I have now left journalism to be able to spend more time on book-writing. 

I am the author of a number of non-fiction books on English landscapes, including the just published Back Roads Through Middle England: from Dorset to the Humber along the Jurassic stone belt (Gritstone Publishing, £13.95). To order this book online, please visit the Gritstone website.

I am speaking at a number of literary festivals about this book during 2018. Details here.

BOOK OF THE MONTH - Cycle magazine, Feb 2018 "Full of detail and well researched". Read the review here.

I am also author of the well-reviewed Backbone of England,  now available as an ebook. 

To whet your appetite, two chapters from Backbone of England are available for browsing and downloading.

Also on an outdoor theme - but fiction, rather than non-fiction - are two crime novels, set in the high Lake District fells. The Bad Step and In the Cold of the Night are both published by Gritstone Publishing Co-operative. Both books are available as ebooks.

I have written for many years on the the themes of co-operative business, mutuality and social enterprise and also blog regularly on these subjects. All Our Own Work, my history of the workers who successfully ran their own textile mill, one of the most significant of Britain's nineteenth century manufacturing cooperatives, was published in June 2015 (published Merlin Press).
