Hello! Welcome to my website. This is where I will share with you all news about my historical novels and tree books.

My first historical novel is being released on Friday 12 November 2021, and I’m excited to share with you the adventures of my hero Tom Tyler. The first book, As the Sparks Fly Upwards, follows Tom on a journey to stay alive and rebuild his life after he loses everything and is cast out into the middle of the English Civil War.

I have previously published Urban Trees: A Practical Management Guide, written using my decades of experience in the arboriculture industry. 

Subscribe to my mailing list to keep up to date with the latest news about my upcoming launches, for exclusive content, and for chances to read the first few chapters of Tom’s story before it’s published.

New Release

- Friday 12 November 2021 - 


You have written a historical novel that feels absolutely authentic. Though it’s clear how much research you must have done in order to make the era and setting feel so convincing, this research never overwhelms the human stories. Great stuff.

Urban Trees: A Practical Management Guide

A very good book for beginners or people interested in the trees around them. I bought this book as I'm looking to pursue a career in arboriculture and it was very informative without been overwhelming for a newbie.
