Forthcoming attractions. See previous blog for the latest on Buchanan 5 The Missing Heiress.


I thought it might be interesting to show the front covers from the two books I am currently writing.

Crichtons End, a dystopian novel about life in the village of Crichtons End when electricity fails and life returns to the days when there were no telephones, television, radio, refrigerators or supermarkets.

Due for publication late 2020

The Jockey's Wife, book six in the DCI Buchanan series. 

When newlyweds Pat McCall and Cynthia Mountjoy loaded up the horse transporter to go racing at Cheltenham, they thought the past was all behind them. But they had not taken in to account the legacy left behind by Cynthia’s disgraced and presumed dead husband Lt Col Victor Mountjoy.The wedding of jockey Pat McCall and stable owner Cynthia Mountjoy had been on hold indefinitely until the a death certificate could be issued for her missing husband. Victor had gone missing when the twin engine Cessna 310 plane he was a passenger in crashed in the English Channel.

Due for publication early 2021.

Special Announcement The Missing Heiress book 5 in the DCI Buchanan series.

Special announcement for those of you who have been keenly waiting for the next installment in the DCI Buchanan series. I am pleased to announce that the fifth in the series, "The Missing Heiress" is in post production and should be available the second week in October.

Zilini Barazani, heiress to the Mastrani company empire has gone missing and DCI Buchanan is asked by her father’s good friend Sir Nathan Greyspear, to find his missing daughter.

Is it just a case of a spoilt brat having a tantrum, or something worse? Could it even be a case of kidnapping for ransom, or is there more sinister reason for her disappearance?

When a dismembered body presumed to be that of her boyfriend is discovered buried in a construction pit, the indomitable team of DCI Buchanan and DS Street set out to discover the reasons and whereabouts of the missing Mastrani Heiress, Zilini Barazani. 

This will be a departure from my normal distribution methods. Since all of my books are now published by Mount Pleasant Publishing, they will not only be available from Amazon, but all major bookshops worldwide.

For those of you who still frequent your library, they can order copies.

The community libraries in the Eastbourne and Pevensey Bay area already have copies on their shelves. For some unknown reason, the main Eastbourne library appears to be more interested in displaying computers than books.

All of my books, except the guitar making ones, are also now available as Hardbacks as well as the standard paperbacks and ePub versions.

For those of you who would like signed copies of any of my books please go to my Website and send me an email and let me know how many signed copies you wish to purchase. Single paperback copies direct from me are currently £9.50 a copy plus shipping via Hermes. There is a reduction in the shipping cost for multiple copies.

For full details of all of my books please go to my Website where you can find Full details  for my books and on the Buchanan Cast page you can read a short Bio on the main characters in the Buchanan series.
