Books and movies

While working as a journalist and academic between 1996 and 2011 I published 27 non-fiction books with publishers in Australia, the UK and the US. Two of those books have been translated into Chinese.

While teaching in China in 2011 I had a near-death experience. It took me two years to process this event and change my approach. In 2013 I started writing fiction full time.

I have written the manuscripts for three novels. To date only Chaucer’s Team has been published (2014). That novel uses Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales as a model and revolves around a travelling cricket team. Twelve members of the Pilgrims tell their stories to team captain Jeffrey Chaucer in the team pub, the Canterbury Tales. The stories are about love, sex, death, masculinity and life. You can buy the print version from Amazon or as an ebook from Kindle.

My first book of poetry If you can be anything, be kind appeared in October 2019. You can buy it on Amazon here.

I have written five screenplays. The Art of Revenge won first prize in the dark humour category at the Grim North screenplay festival in December 2019.

In 2020 I wrote, directed, filmed and edited two short films: Lockdown Love and My Plastic Friend. I filmed both with an iPhone and edited them on an iPad.

My most recent non-fiction book was the second edition of my book on clear writing, CLARITY, published in August 2018. You can buy it on Amazon by clicking here.
