Firstly, I'd like to thank you so much for visiting my site. I appreciate your interest and hope you feel my developing Bureau 7 series is something you want to stay with.
I suppose I'm one of those typical writers who from a very young age have had stories in my head that I've wanted to get out. The urge to write and experience the enjoyment of creating something that people want to read has always been my goal. To have finally been able to do that, with your support, is humbling and extraordinarily gratifying.
From the age of about six or seven, I spent hours in the public library – long before the advent of Google and the current plethora of online click-of-the-mouse resources – trawling the long aisles of books. Sometimes I'd just look at the covers, enjoying the design and typography. I know. Spooky!
Then real life took over and I joined the British Army at sixteen and subsequently became a police officer. After leaving the police, I spent some time delivering training to companies in the UK and Ireland and have spent most of the intervening period in the Middle East doing my writing in the sun.
I created Lawrence Lander with the intention of writing a series of novels and novellas about his work with Bureau 7. My aim is to develop Lander's story and inject as many thrills along the way as I can. I think my readers will also be held by the development of his relationship with Rivka Levine.
I have a lot of experience of international travel, so be assured that Lander's work will take him on journeys to many varied and interesting parts of the world. The way the twenty-first century is developing geopolitically means that Bureau 7 and its operators will not be short of work in exotic locations.
Please accept this invitation to follow not only Lander and his colleagues in the series, but also myself as a storyteller.
I look forward to having you along.
