Following his savage murder in a London vicarage, Reverend Ulysses Drummond embarks on an epic odyssey in the afterlife, wrestling with his conscience and misguidedly spurning the obvious advantages of a free ticket to Paradise.

His ten-year-old son, Henry, is left to muddle through life, encountering school bullies, big-hearted benefactors and cold-blooded killers on his passage to adulthood.

Will Henry find love, success and happiness in his life – or will he suffer the cruel and agonising death that was foretold?


I was born of Irish parents, and have lived in Malaysia and Germany.

My formal education was at Hamond’s Grammar School in Swaffham, and at the Norfolk College of Arts and Technology (Stephen Fry being a much more famous former student).

I write in the magical realism genre, meshing otherworldliness into the harshness of our real world. I also like to handcuff humour and tragedy to the same radiator.

Perhaps incongruously for an author, I have a background in karate and kickboxing. I also travel extensively – particularly in the Far East.

I’m married (to Julie), and currently live in Norwich, England.

Stuff about me: I’m a foodie and an avid reader; I value good manners, love and friendship above all else; I am constantly putting my foot in it, am reputed to have a wicked sense of humour and love to laugh, but sometimes do that ‘snorty pig’ noise when I do!

I’m also easy-going and extremely friendly. Come on over and have a chat – I’ll put the kettle on!
