Welcome to my website.

The e-edition of my first two novels, Singing Bird, and Meeting Point have just been published by Crux. Hardback and paperback editions are still available on Amazon.  My first crime novel, 'Bogman' (written under the pen name R I Olufsen) has also been published by Crux. It's available from Amazon , Barnes and Noble, the specialist crime bookshop No Alibis, Sheehy's, and other bookstores. On 7th November I'll be reading from 'Bogman' and discussing genre - fiction and crime fiction - at No Alibis bookshop. I am one of the presenters of Sunday Sequence on BBC Radio Ulster.
