Get In Touch
As a writer, I enjoy receiving feedback from readers, booksellers, and librarians. The easiest way to contact me is through Facebook and Twitter, but feel free to send an email and I'll do my best to get back to you as soon as I can. Please bear in mind, though, that writing comes first, and it may take me a little while.
From music to accompany the Parker books, to radio shows, to artwork and films. Some interesting bibs and bobs related to John and his books
On a lonely moor in the northeast of England, the body of a young woman is discovered near the site of a vanished church. In the south, a girl lies buried beneath a Saxon mound. To the southeast, the ruins of a priory hide a human skull.
Each is a sacrifice, a summons.
And something in the darkness has heard the call.
