I have been writing books, resources and articles for over twenty years, individually, and in teams of authors. Most of my writing is for school English textbooks and literature study guides, though I have also written RE resources and A-Level History textbooks. In addition I have published titles on mythology, the Celts, and Native American culture.

My newly republished guide Introducing the Brontës is now available on Amazon in paperback and Kindle book.


I write for a number of publishers, including Hodder, Pearson, HarperCollins and Cross Academe. Some of my titles (sole or co-author) are shown below. Click on covers for further information. I also write digital school resources (Hodder Dynamic Learning, Pearson, HarperCollins) and have a special interest in their development.

Recently, I have been series editor for Hodder Education's new series of A-Level English Literature workbooks, and written two of them: Othello and Atonement. The series has now been published.
