I started writing fiction when I had too much time on my hands. I’d written reports for the past twenty -ish years but hadn’t penned any fiction since I was at school, thirty years earlier. Having the time to write, indeed a need to write, came about after my life had taken a severe left turn after a law-enforcement career of twenty years and a marriage of thirteen years both ended suddenly.
It was surprisingly easy to write, although my early writings were sloppy and full of typos! Since 2009 I have written over a million words but until November 2016 none had been published in a paid-for format, instead they were available for free in a small corner of the internet.
