I've been a copy, speech and scriptwriter for a long time!


Before that, I wrote songs and stories for the BBC, then became a stand-up comedian for eight years, writing my own stories (no jokes!). I also wrote and sang all the songs for my rock band - the Stan Arnold Combo - and wrote some romantic songs which were signed up by a publisher in LA (see SoundCloud link opposite).


I was born in Warrington in Lancashire and have lived in London, Brighton,  and Tickenham - a village between Bristol and Clevedon.


I now live in and work from Lanzarote, with my wife Dee and cats, Bonzo, Jingle and Katti.


In my six years here, I have written six funny novels - The Implosion Saga.


The stories are about two incompetent Soho-based corporate video producers who drink too much, don't earn enough and get too many death threats.


They are living at the bottom of a barrel no-one wants to scrape.


I suppose the next thing to do is promote these little offerings so I can achieve my life's ambition - to own a garden shed on Mustique.


(All very well, I hear you say, but have you seen the price of creosote on the island?)

The Implosion Saga


I started off with the idea of writing a very short story about two useless, drunken corporate video producers - Mick and Jim - sleeping off hangovers, in hammocks strung up in their lino-floored Soho office.


I had no idea their mis-adventures would lead to six novels, including exotic locations like Southsea, Las Vegas, the Caribbean, the Amazon, Lanzarote, Hollywood and the Yorkshire Dales - all of which they manage to tarnish significantly with their presence.


To save your brain from scrambling, I suggest you read them in order, as the stories link together.


Hope you enjoy.
