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.
My talks can be delivered as virtual presentations – zoom etc
£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.
