Books

All my published books are shown below and several are available from this site.

I have always enjoyed writing.  My earliest ‘books’ were written at primary school and were, somewhat precociously, about William Caxton and ancient Mesopotamia!  Here are their covers, somewhat faded after several decades !

I have written books on a variety of subjects, published and edited an international magazine for management consultants (Effective Consulting) and edited a number of house journals and membership organisation magazines, including Afghan Review and The Cord (both for canine societies), Brent Goose (for an NHS district) and various other publications.  I was also co-editor for Palace Guard – a newsletter to promote Alexandra Palace before its re-development.  I am a member of the Society of Authors and was a Fellow of CIB (Communicators in Business) and won one of their short story competitions and one of their poetry competitions.

Many of my books are about, or include aspects of, NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming); you can find out more about NLP in the ‘Coaching’ section of this website.

And here are just a few comments people have made about some of my books:
