About the author

Like you, I’m on a journey. A journey facing unexpected life-changing events. A journey to find the meaning of life.

My historical fiction lets you explore unfamiliar worlds, where the characters struggle with daily setbacks and challenges, and – deep down – face the same questions you and I do.

Join me and meet my historic heroes, mentors and antagonists on an authentic spiritual adventure!


Born many moons ago on the beautiful Island of Jersey, I studied physics at Imperial College London. After graduating, I moved to Switzerland, raised a family, and worked as an IT consultant for many years before becoming a technical writer. Retirement has given me the leisure to complete my first book, set on the Isle of Elba in the sixth century AD:

Aquila – Can Silvanus escape that god?
available as an ebook, paperback or audio book

My second book has the provisional title: Gédéon – A Huguenot tale.
