Going Back was published in the summer of 2013. It tells the story of Andrew Macintyre and his friends, badly scarred at the age of 15 by events they barely understood at the time, and of how, 25 years later, they all learn to come to terms with what happened to them.

Coming soon: Shore Leave
Scheduled for publication in the near future, Shore Leave tells the intertwined stories of two men, one without a past, and one without a future.
Spanning over 50 years from the childhood of Robbie, fated never to return from war, to the restless life of David, a man who can only find peace by uncovering the truth about his connection to Robbie.
From the author of the highly-praised Going Back, a new novel of memory and loss.
