---Hello and welcome to my website

Malcolm and Dora

Picture by Richard Austin

I’m a retired vet and author. My first novel, published by John Blake Publishing in May 2011, was Pets in a Pickle.  This has a foreword by James Herriot’s son and quotes by Sir Terry Wogan and Richard Madeley, amongst others. The ebook version reached number two on Amazon Kindle’s bestseller list. The second book in the series, Pets on Parade, was published in April 2012 and the third, Pets Aplenty, in August 2014.

I also write for several national magazines and have had occasional features in the Daily Mail and the Sunday Times.

As a guest speaker on cruise ships, I’ve completed thirty engagements in the past six years. It’s a wonderful way to see different parts of the world while at the same time sharing my experiences of life with animals and I feel extremely lucky to have had this privilege.

If anyone in the UK has a charity event – especially if animal- orientated – and would like to consider me as an after-dinner speaker, do please get in touch. I’m also willing to donate signed copies of my books for raffles to help raise funds for dog and cat rescue societies.

Hope you enjoy having a look round my website.

Thanks for popping in.
