After serving eighteen years in the British Royal Navy, Carl was medically discharged with a broken back and started his first novel. He had almost completed it when he had to put it aside to earn a living wage. He taught himself Visual Basic and became a computer programmer. Although it paid enough to live on he felt unfulfilled and became unhappy with the rat race. He and his wife decided to move to the Dominican Republic for a slower pace of life.
He started to write GERALD, his second novel. The first draft was completed within six months and went through revision after revision until he had it shining like a new penny. James Wymore saw the novel and championed it through a few more revisions and it was published in May 2017 as his debut novel.
Since finishing GERALD, Carl has completed JAGUAR, the first novel he started, and has completed the second in the GERALD series. He is now half way through his fourth novel about an Anglo Saxon boy. They are all very different and say a lot about his interests in life. Fantastical worlds, animals and medieval England.
When Carl is not writing he paints animals and some of his art can be seen on his website.
In Carl's ideal world he would be writing novels and painting magical creatures such as Dragons, Unicorns and Phoenixes.
