I was educated in Nottingham, leaving school at sixteen. I spent twenty-seven years as a police officer, the majority as a Detective Sergeant within the Specialist Operations Command, in London. I specialised in Child Protection and was part of a Major Investigation Team that targeted abusers and investigated murder. My last seven years were in the Covert Policing Command where I managed a specialist covert unit dedicated to the detection and disruption of organised criminal networks across London and the UK.
Rubicon is in development with the BBC for a six part TV series.
I'm an ambassador for Muscular Dystrophy UK and live in Scotland where I divide my time between family, writing, reading and photography.
