Brought up on an eclectic diet of historical romance and crime novels Stephen had always wanted to write thrillers and mysteries.

Diverted after graduation into the media rat race, it was many years before he started to feel that he had both the experience and the slowly developing ability to write full time.

Six novels later he is proud to have joined Diamond Books growing slate of authors with The Fortieth Step, Volumes One, Two and Three – his 21st century update of John Buchan’s Richard Hannay novels.
