Books I've Written For Myself

These sixteen titles are books that I sell (via Amazon and from my own websites) or provide free of charge to give my customers a bit of added value. I have written other books that are now out of print. The book at the lower right, that doesn't match the others, is 'The Moon Carrier'. This is my hardback book of romantic poetry and is, in my biased and unimportant opinion, by far the best thing I've ever written!

My Work As A Ghost Writer

Here are just eight of the books I've either written for other people or helped them to write. I have done more but I'm not allowed to mention the others.

I thoroughly enjoy being a ghost writer and I've loved working on all of these books plus the others I can't tell you about!
