Welcome to this site. I’m a novelist, non-fiction writer, journalist and teacher and these pages try to bring these things together, and to explore how ideas become books.
There’s also background information on two current projects, Downstream: A Social History of Swimming the Thames, and a novel called The Wild Swimmer about the life of Daisy Belle, a Victorian ‘champion lady swimmer of the world.’
