Welcome to my website. The visitor will find here information about my published books, the book I am currently writing, and any matters at all connected with my writing – wherever my mind is led on literary matters. My latest publication is Prison Hulk to Redemption: Part One of a Family History 1788-1900. It is the first of a series of four books in which I trace the family history against the social and political background of the period. My object is to trace cultural continuities and explore identities.
