I am an independent, completely unattached writer, available for all projects individual or communal, big or small, round or fat, poetic, sardonic, obsessive or just plain love stories about smoked cheese.

My writing style is adaptable and suitable for both digital and print media. I am interested in contributing SEO content, web content, printed features and articles, blogs, social media, press releases, promotional material and book projects.


I currently contribute to official publications of Leeds United Football club, including the Matchday Programme. I am also a contributing writer to James Brown's latest venture Sabotage Times, the Leeds lifestyle website My Life in Leeds, and since 1994, the Leeds United independent supporters magazine The Square Ball . On a freelance basis I work for the Press Association's 'Content for Marketing' department, which provides custom news feed, articles and social media content for clients such as business services providers, healthcare specialists, financial services organisations, and technology and travel operations. I have recently had articles and letters published in FourFourTwo magazine, Leeds Guide, FQ Magazine, Junior Magazine and the Reader's Digest. Finally, I contribute Blog posts to the website of the company Beanstalk Toys.

All White: Leeds United's 100 Greatest Players cover. In November 2012 I published my book 'All White: Leeds United's 100 Greatest Players'. The book was compiled during 2012 with the help of stats man Andrew Dalton and was based on a new fans vote conducted in conjunction with Leeds United. The book includes extensive biographies with fresh insight and stats on all 100 players, and is beautifully illustrated and designed. You can keep updated with news and announcements on the book via a Facebook page, which includes some photos from the launch events and links to various articles on the books' release:

For most of 2013 I will be working on compiling a definitive history of Elland Road Football Ground, which I started in 2011, but have placed on hold whilst I completed my other book project. This has never been attempted before and includes the development of the stadium, the changing environment in the surrounding area and the various operations that make up the matchday experience. This is a long term project but depending on what distractions come up, I hope to complete it in 2013. I am currently compiling responses from fans and Leeds United-related personalities who have submitted stories and anecdotes to include in the book. I am also in the process of developing a children's story series, for which I am hoping to find a publisher.
