The print version of my latest book Broke the Grape’s Joy will be launched on Amazon on the 1st of June.
The paperback is available NOW from the publishers, Feed A Read, at the special discount price of £6.99 + p+p here.
“This is a book I wanted to finish and yet was enjoying the journey so much that I forced myself to ration the chapters to make it last longer. I just hope this is the first of many such books from this very talented writer with a mastery of bitter-sweet tales.”

Sun, Saint-Emilion and Sex (well, a bit…) My latest book, Broke the Grape’s Joy, is now on Amazon and Smashwords. Travelling around le hexagon a couple of years ago gave me plenty of time to think about story lines. The vineyards and the people who manage them were my inspiration. My story is, I suppose, in the A Year In The Sun vein, but there are no leaking sceptic tanks or mysterious chicken thieves in my book. But you will find murder, deceit, bipolar disorder, synaesthesia and Aspergers syndrome… plus the world’s most fabulous wine and an orange 2CV and a Jack Russell, to boot. All that in 80-odd thousand words and all for less than 2 quid!
