THE AUTHOR



Books include If Not For The Narcissist, What's Left Of The Toll Roads and Mementos From The Atelier.
(All works of fiction)

Background:

M. (yes, just the letter "M"...it's what everyone in his circle calls him) spent much of his formative years in ad agencies telling stories for brands—their stories. In recent years, he curated and served as Editor for a digital fashion and lifestyle magazine, feeding his desire to tell his own brand of stories. ONE BARBICAN PLACE, the series, was born. Once half way through the first of three books, the other two wrote themselves in his head.

By his account, the first book should have been written more than a year prior to the initial first few words actually being drafted but he chose to take the extended period to find his voice...one that lived up to his mission: to gently lead you into the intended pace and rhythm of the story without any pretence. Yes, he broke a few fundamental rules to writing—it was deliberate and he will never apologise for it.

He described writing the tales of ONE BARBICAN PLACE as "an absolute thrill of a lifetime." In the end, that's really what it was meant to be when he started.

Much of the tales appear to be told from a "fly on the wall" perspective...in some cases, observing from a place that must have left his subjects vulnerable; read into some of the vividly-described passages as you see fit.

With Book Two,
WHAT'S LEFT OF THE TOLL ROADS, coming in late June, 2019, you can expect the third and final of the series some time during Summer. (Watch this space.)
