I’m the author of several novels and non-fiction titles, and this is where you can find out about all of the books and follow the ups and downs of a professional writer’s life. Welcome aboard – I look forward to your feedback!
I was born in 1960 in Washington DC, grew up in Surrey and moved to London in 1978. I’ve lived here ever since. After a few years pursuing an academic career, which really wasn’t my cup of tea, I got into journalism where I stayed for over 20 years, writing for a wide variety of dailies, weeklies and monthlies in the UK and elsewhere. It was fun, I met pretty much everyone, and I learned to drink like a man. I still do bits and pieces, but nowadays fiction is my full-time job.
I also write under the name James Lear (erotica) and Rupert James (blockbuster chicklit type stuff).
