I write pure escapism, total fantasy; sexy, steamy, sometimes quite dark romance. And sometimes with more than a nod to my northern English roots.

It was never my dream to be a writer. But having a good
imagination and being good at writing essays and short stories at school led me
to writing more short stories in my spare time after leaving school and then
again when I was a bit older. Writing then became an escape from the stresses
of real life.
Being an old romantic at heart, and a football fan, I wrote
a short story during my lunch breaks at work a few years ago. That story was
called Grande Plage. It’s about a young footballer who is loaned out
to a French club one summer and falls in love with a girl while he’s there. His
stay in France is cut short and he has to leave the girl behind. Many years
later, with an aching heart, he returns to France to see if the girl is still
there. After receiving a few good comments about it from people I’d privately
shared it with, I posted the story on my blog and eventually, I published it as
a short story on Amazon for Kindle.
Football related romance has become the subject I’m
comfortable with since writing the two novels that are The Shane Henderson Diary Series.
