I'm a freelance writer,  ex-actor, fringe theatre director, and scriptwriter. I'm married and live in the Welsh Marches, the boderland between England and Wales, and the backdrop to a series of novels I'm writing, set in a river valley in a village called Batch Magna. The first in the series, The Cuckoos of Batch Magna, was first publsihed in paperback by BeWrite Books, and is shortly coming out as an ebook with Endeavour Press. They can, I suppose, be  described as feelgood books (or as one Amazon  reviewer had it, The Wind in the Willows for grown-ups).

The pivotal character is a short-order cook from the Bronx, who, though the ancient law of entailment, finds himself to be 9th baronet and squire of Batch Magna. He has plans to make a killing by turning the sleepy backwater into a theme-park image of rural England for free-spending US millionaires. The village pub and shop, with dollar signs in their eyes, put out the Stars and Stripes; the dwellers on the houseboats - converted paddle steamers - on the estate's stretch of river are less enamoured, and running up the Union Jack in response, prepare to do battle.
