“Like my protagonist, Jake Abraham, I’m a child of the ’80s. I grew up watching Columbo, The Rockford Files and Magnum, P.I., and wanted to be either a detective or an author. Or a helicopter pilot.

I’ve always been a fan of American crime fiction and in my early teens a new TV show called ‘Spenser: For Hire’ led me to discover the books of Robert B. Parker, who has been a huge influence on my writing and on Jake – Spenser is his hero.

The response to The Shoulders of Giants has been fantastic, and many reviewers have said they are looking forward to the next one, so I guess I’d better get on with it!”

I hope you enjoy my books.
