I’m a writer and artist from Oldham, near Manchester, in the North West of England. I write long and short commercial fiction with a subtext of the human condition. I also write news articles and opinion pieces. More about me here.

I am delighted to announce that I have signed a three-book deal with Bloodhound Books to publish The Replacement and two further psychological thrillers. The Replacement will publish in April 2023.

I have also signed a two book deal with Spellbound Books for my uplifting romantic comedies, Teenage Kicks and Palace Records. Teenage Kicks will be published 8th March 2023 under the pen name of Jax Ward. I will be donating 10% of publishing royalties to Coffee4Craig to help prevent homelessness, and Spellbound Books have very kindly matched this.

Please click on the books below to buy any of my titles from Amazon. They are available in ebook and paperback – some are also available in audiobook format on Audible. You can also find my books in Waterstones, WH Smiths, and supermarkets. More to come very soon! 

I am absolutely honoured that my writing has been reviewed nationally. You can see the reviews, praise and articles by clicking the logos below. Thank you to all readers and reviewers everywhere, you make the publishing world go round!
