About the author.

Born in Salford in 1958, I have spent most of my working life performing on the stage with my comedy magic act, El Loco. Over a 30 year period I was fortunate to perform more than 4,000 shows world wide, in various venues that included theatres, cruise ships, hotels, holiday parks and social clubs.
Unfortunately, one fateful night aboard a cruise ship off Dubai, I suffered a life changing heart attack before a performance, bringing down the curtain on my career.

At a loose end, having an encyclopaedic knowledge of stage performance and magic, it was suggested I should write a book to fulfil my creative need.
This is my first novel, “Into the Wolf’s Mouth”.

Based in Nottinghamshire with my wife Kate, we have two wonderful sons, Charlie and George, who with their partners, Corazon and Becca, have three little miracles – Reuben, Charlotte and Ezra.

“What a wonderful story. The struggles of an abandoned boy set against mysterious murders. It kept me guessing who the murderer was right to the end”.

“Gripped from the 1st Chapter… so many twists & turns I couldn’t put it down. Well written and perfectly engineered A must read!’..👍

“I absolutely loved this book and read it in just 2 days as I couldn’t wait to find out how it would all end. The story pulls you in, you cannot wait to find out who did it and why, and also hoping Gee finds the happiness he deserves. My favourite character is Zap, she is so wild and clearly lives life to the full – it makes you want to be her!! I would highly recommend this book its brilliantly written.
