I live in London, England and write about the ancient near east. My debut novel, now released in early summer 2012, is ‘In a Milk and Honeyed Land’, following the fortunes of a village seer and priest in the hill country of Canaan. The plot stays almost entirely within his home town of Kephrath, tracing the struggles and triumphs he faces in unsettled times. A short story, ‘The Man in the Cistern’, focuses on an episode in the life of the town about ten years later.
Outside of writing, I work in IT on technical quality assurance, and also write mobile and tablet apps with a focus on the ancient world. When not writing words or computer code, I enjoy spending time with family, walking, and wildlife, ideally combining all three of those interests at the same time in the English Lake District.
