I was born in England and raised there and in the United States and Scotland.
I graduated with a couple of science degrees, before I emigrated to Canada to work first on a business magazine and then on The Financial Post newspaper, where I won an award for distinguished financial reporting. It was there, in my twenties, that I also had the first of my novels published.
After several years in Canada, I returned to the United Kingdom where, with Miriam Murcutt, I set up a publishing company that produced an annual directory, ran an associated web site, and organized a series of direct-mail marketing programs.
After selling the business, I moved to the United States to live in Boulder, Colorado.
I'm the author of nine books, including three novels (a political thriller, a financial thriller, and a crime novel), a non-fiction book on economics, and the novelization of a horror movie-script by the film director, David Cronenberg.
I have also written for television.
When I’m not writing, I enjoy traveling, running, long-distance hiking in mountains and canyons, biking and reading.
I was born and educated in the United Kingdom, where I graduated with a Master of Arts degree, majoring in English Literature and Sociology.
After graduation I worked as a writer and editor on consumer and business magazines in England and Canada, before I switched into the sales and marketing side of the publishing business.
I've won several marketing awards.
I’ve been a long-time (sometimes even diligent) student of Spanish, which was invaluable when we were researching - and interviewing – for one of our books, A Room with a Pew.
When I’m not sitting at a desk, writing or reading, I like to move around as much as possible, preferably in the outdoors. The landscapes of Utah, Colorado - and the American West in general - hold a special place in my heart.
I work full-time as a writer, and have co-authored four books - all with Richard Starks.
We are now working together on a new manuscript – this one fiction – and hope to have it completed in the very near future.
Richard Starks and Miriam Murcutt are both members of the Authors' Guild.
