His first book, Crossfire, was published in 1992. His most recent book is the fantasy novel The Book from Baden Dark. In 1998 he resigned from teaching and now writes full-time.
He has stated that his book Black Taxi was based on a conversation he overheard between his daughter and some of her friends when she was sixteen.
