Interview snippet Q1) Tell us a bit about your books. I have four books already published, and A Ticket to Tewkesbury (ISBN 9781905809349) was the first, in 2008.  It begins as a love story, back in 1946, and is brought to the present day by the discovery of an old letter written, but not posted.  The story then takes you into the dark, murky waters of espionage, as competing parties vie for possession of a set of secret files brought back from Germany by a soldier at the end of WWII. Short Stories Volume One (ISBN 9781905809608) , released in 2009, is an anthology encompassing horror, crime, romance, science-fiction, humour fantasy and adventure.  There are 36 pieces varying in length from 1,000 to 3,000 words. Two Little Dicky Birds (ISBN 9781905809936), 2010’s novel, tells the story of the search for a serial killer who, between 1975 and 1992, terrorized England and took the lives of 18 innocent victims.  It also tells the tale of the rise through the ranks of PC Paul Townle

Can you tell us a little about yourself and your book 'The Creator's Diet'? I'm a Q1. Can you tell us a little about yourself and your book 'Ndlovu-The White Elephant'? I was born in Kenya. Lived in the 'outbacks' of Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania, before going to Rhodesia in 1958. I joined the BSA Police Force in 1959 - serving till 1967. The book is about a retired ex-police constable, who commits a murder, flees the country, but returned as the leader of a terrorist gang. He is on a diabolical mission, he is wily and ruthless, but he has one fear - a recurring dream in which he is crushed and gored by an elephant, that appears white in colour, and remembers that the police officer that is after him, was given the name NDLOVU - meaning elephant by the local chief as he never forgot a criminal till he caught him.
