'Sixty-Minute Theatre - Top Ten Dickens Tales'

Following the success of last year's 'Macbeth Curse' tour I'll be working with "Prime Theatre Company" to create a new touring show for 2018

Eboracum Baroque

These talented musicians perform concerts while I narrate the stories that link the musical peices. Following our 5-star concert at the Edinburgh Festival we will be planning new shows for 2017. The next will be 30 September 2017 in Bury. Details nearer the date.

New Media

In 2017 I will be working with international partners to adapt my new novel (title a secret) as a Virtual Reality (VR) project for release in Spring 2018.

I'll also be looking at the possibility of producing "Horrible Histories" as Augmented Reality (AR) app for smartphones and tablets. They will be fun history guides to selected cities in the UK

 New writing this month

In July I am working on a new book for adults, 'Riots and Wrongs' to accompany a TV series.

A new release for the 4-book series "Master Crook's Crime Academy" is being planned and I'll be editing that along with 'Silver Hand'. That book will be released late in 2018 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the armistice at the end of World War I. 


  • I have about 50 children's fiction titles that are now out of print. I have been working to convert them into e-books and make them available to a new generation of readers. In June 2013 I relaunched his fabulous "Tudor Chronicles" historical fiction series as Kindle downloads.
