Hello there! Thanks for stopping by my site. I’m a writer from Belfast, Northern Ireland and love to use words to inspire others, one word at a time.


In a big and bold way I hope my writing encourages, enlightens and awakens you to help you discover the life you are supposed to live. In another way I hope the characters I create in my books, poems and short stories make you laugh your head off, help you get through a commute, grip you in your favourite seat for hours and help you ponder this beautifully dynamic thing we call life.

The White Letter Steph & Peter.jpg

My beautiful wife Kerry runs the fabulous stationery company The White Letter. We have a bump on the way and used to have a cat called Rusty until our mother-in-law stole him. (Well it’s more of an agreed kidnapping where we still buy the food and he sleeps in her utility room).


I’m sports mad - enjoying everything from football to Kabaddi. If it’s on TV I’ll happily watch it and then go out to the garden and try and re-create it. I’m a fair weather cyclist and have the vague hope of one day cycling across Europe in an Arsenal shirt if they ever win The Champions League.
