My novel The Judge of the Dead was published through CreateSpace (paperback) and Kindle Direct Publishing (ebook) on 26 July 2015. This website was intended to show the journey from the decision to self-publish through to it being available to buy. As a taste of my writing style, I added a page for my 2012/13 Fish Short Story Prize long-listed entry ‘Leave it to Bertie’, a sort of modern day Wodehouse set in a police station in Newport, Wales.
Here’s me – complete with Stone Roses Spike Island era corduroy sunhat – taken from a holiday in Costa Rica years ago, looking happy but pretty exhausted. Maybe more the latter. It’s my favourite photo of myself and brings back some lovely memories – except the sunburn.
