20 March 2015 - Apologies for the lack of any updates recently but I've been a bit consumed by a couple of projects and a few things have been allowed to slide, my website being one.


So, to catch up: We have now attached a director to Wings of a Sparrow which, as I mentioned in my last update, has been optioned by Trebuchet Film Poductions. I'll announce his name as soon as I'm allowed but what I will say is that I'm genuinely thrilled to be working with this guy as he's extremely talented and I know is going to do an awesome job.


I can also announce that a second movie project is tettering on the edge of being green lit. Sadly, I can't say anything much about it at the moment other than to say that it's totally different from anything I've written before. However, to say that I'm excited is an understatment not least because of who is attached to direct it. But more of all that nearer the time.


On the book front, as I tweeted last week I'm currently working on the third installment of the Billy Evans trilogy. Entitled In The Know it will pick up where Top Dog finished and is much darker than the previous two books. All being well, it'll hit the shelves (and the kindles) in July.


Away from books and films and onto something much more serious, last week I spent some time with a group from the Bravo 22 veterans theatre project. If you want to know more about who they are and what they do, please click on the link but to say what's going on there is inspirational doesn't do it justice.


This coming week (26th-28th), they're be putting on a play called Contact at the Waterside Theatre in Aylesbury and if you can, please get along to see it. It's going to be quite something and is for a great cause.


Finally, just a reminder that We Still Kill The Old Way has been nominated for a raft of awards including Best Action Film at the Action Elite Awards so if you could find the time to click on the link and give a vote or two, that'd be great!


06 February 2015 - I'm happy to be able to pass on news of one of the projects I'm currently working on and is that Wings of a Sparrow which has been optioned by Trebuchet Film Poductions.


News of another option deal for a new script will hopefully be released within the next two weeks.


I'm also thrilled to announce that aside from Top Dog being nominated for Best feature at the NFA's in March, We Still Kill The Old Way has been nominated for a raft of awards including Best Action Film at the Action Elite Awards.


16 January 2015 - Well, a new year is underway and it's been fairly chaotic so far with work on two projects continuing apace. News of these will be released shortly with one sure to cause something of a stir!


In other news, Top Dog has been nominated in the 'Best Action' category of the National Film Awards which is great news so a huge well done to the team.


As you may know, We Still Kill The Old Way has now been released and is receiving decent reviews although for various reasons, I haven't seen it yet. Hopefully, I'll be able to remedy that soon.

29 November 2014 - Huge apologies for the lack of work on this site recently. I've been buried under half a dozen different movie projects and they have obviously had to take priority.


All being well, at least one, if not two of these are heading rapidly toward production and if all goes to plan, I'll be able to pass on news before the end of the year. So please, watch this space!


In the meantime, We Still Kill The Old Way is heading rapidly toward its release date of 26th December so please click on the link above for more details.

26 August 2014 - Just a quick update to let you know that the release of the audiobook version of Top Dog is imminent!


I'll pass on details of that as and when I can as well as news of the release of We Still Kill The Old Way and all being well, some information on not one, not two but THREE film projects.


6 August 2014 - Sorry for the lack of updates but I've been snowed under with work on another project news of which, I'm hoping to be able to pass on soon. In the meantime, I'm happy to be able to tell you that my book Rebellionwill soon be released in ebook format. I'm really pleased about this as it's one of my favourite books and has as much relevance now as it ever did. I can also announce that an audio version of Top Dog will also be released in the very near future.


11 May 2014 - Well, if you didn't know it already, Top Dog won best feature at the British Independent Film Festival last night and on top of that, Leo, Ricci and Lorraine took home the best actor, best supporting actor and best actress awards respectively.


You don't need me to tell you that's a massive deal not only for the three of them, but for the movie as a whole and I would personally like to thank everyone involved, be they cast or crew, for all their amazing work. Hopefully, there's more to come!
