I hope that this will be a valuable resource for my readers, as well as being an enjoyable place to spend a few minutes online.

As well as providing links to my books, there’s also exclusive, not-for-sale content that is only for members of this site.

Membership is free, but it will help to keep me writing if you can chip in for a mug of tea  now and then.

This is easily done via buttons around the site, or the handy ‘Support me’ button that floats around each post and lets you donate without leaving this site.

This site is a safe space and closely monitored. I want to be sure that everyone can enjoy their time here.

As a member, you are able to comment on the posts. That means that you’ll be able to take part by asking questions or joining in a discussion.

I hope that you’ll take part in a spirit of goodwill to all the other members.

If not, I’ll have to kick you out. I don’t anticipate any problems, but I’ll deal with them if they occur.

You can sign-up here:


To manage your membership, you’ll find some helpful links in the top menu on the site.

If you wish to leave the site later, that’s absolutely fine. It’s easy to do.

If there are teething problems, please give me a shout via the contact page.

At present, there are no membership levels. Everyone gets equal access.

Please note that membership of the site does not add you to any mailing lists, but you may wish to receive my readers’ group newsletter, The Awkward Squad, and there’s also the ‘mystery by email’ adventure, Death at Blackingstone Rock.

If you have any questions, please comment below.

Best wishes,



Keep the Words Flowing

To keep me writing, I need tea in industrial quantities. You can make that happen with just a couple of clicks
