A very warm hello and welcome to my website. 

I am a published author, editor, creative writing tutor, book reviewer and ghost (not the scary kind). I have written ten books under my own name and the pseudonym Thomas Black, which are a mixture of fiction and non-fiction. I have also ghostwritten a dozen more titles, several of which have been international bestsellers.

As a creative writing tutor, I teach novel writing and five further courses for the prestigious Faber Academy. I am also Director of Fiction for the Professional Writing Academy, where I run courses on crime and genre fiction. 

I work, too, as an editorial consultant and mentor for a number of publishers, literary agencies and organisations, and also in a private capacity. Locally, I host the Salisbury Writing Circle -- a community of new and experienced writers alike and write a weekly column on the arts (sort of) for the Salisbury Journal.

This autumn, I'm also one of the founders and Director of the inaugural Salisbury Literary Festival.

 On this website, you'll find details about the sort of things I get up to, as well as contact information if you'd like to get in touch. Many thanks for visiting!
