Author, writer, publisher. Workplace training. Personal development. Counselling and support. Private Security.


Thanks for looking at my website. I started in the security industry way back in the mid '80s. I then went into nightclub management for a short while, managing a number of high-profile venues including; The Millionaire in Peterborough, EQV in Wilmslow and even Le Central on the Champs Elysée in Paris (I speak a little French) and then, using my security and club management experience, I then attended a six-week close protection course in Wales and started a small security training company, eventually becoming International Training Manager for the Worldwide Federation of Bodyguards, running Close Protection training courses in Russia, Iceland, Sweden and the UK. In the year 2000, I sold my company and began writing my first book Doing The Doors, which became a genre best-seller.

I have been writing and publishing books on and off ever since, and am now the author of 24 titles including six non-fiction true crime titles, and a large number of other titles including the acclaimed Collections of Poetry and Prose book series and THE POET. I also mentor, coach and help other people write and publish their own books.

I continue to write and publish, as well as providing security services, but I am now also focusing more and more on workplace and personal development training, as well as offering workplace counselling and support for employees working or living in aggressive or violent environments, and for individuals suffering from depression, anxiety and stress.
