The Extraordinary Dr Epstein

 The true-life story of a remarkable 19th c immigrant, told as a novel so that I   could get into his heart and mind. Ephraim M Epstein is my great grandfather, his story the book I always had to write. The writing and researching was a grand adventure in itself. Please do visit him at his site where I’m chronicling his life, times, people and places. Available on Amazon in paperback, and ebooks everywhere. Also see Paxton Publishing

‘geographic, spiritual and psychological… compelling, surprising and carefully researched’ — Glenn Frankel, Pulitzer Prize winning journalist and author of The Searchers: The Making of an American Legend.


Creative Writing: the Quick Matrix, Selected Exercises & Ideas for Teachers

A handbook of 104 exercises and mini-lectures, plus advice and support for teachers or leaders of creative writing. Gathered over 29,000 student hours of teaching, I wanted to share what I’d learned, especially thinking of writers who do a bit of teaching; writers’ circles, too. My blog offers support too. See here for both versions in UK (original paperback and kindle). Or for ebook in USA see and all other ebook sources everywhere.
