Hello and welcome to my website. I’m an author with a unique style of writing that draws on over 30 years  of combined military Special Operations and other special service experience in some of the worlds most deadly locations. MANTRA-6 is a new series of Thriller / Espionage novels following SAS legend John Devereaux. Each novel in the series is based on a mission focusing on SAS and ASIS clandestine operations, providing a reading experience unlike any other. I’m so appreciative and delighted by the positive support my work has and is receiving. I’m looking forward to sharing my future stories as they come to fruition.
