About

I have been a published author since 1984.  I’ve written picture books, early readers, middle grade, young adult, adult, comic, serious, contemporary, historical, real-life and imaginative.  I’ve been published by numerous giants, many indies, and occasionally myself. I’ve had big hits and flops, I’ve been well-known and unknown, I have strong opinions which are not always the conventional ones, and I reckon I have a range of experience which is worth sharing. That is the purpose of this site. The title is a homage to William Goldman’s brilliant book about screenwriting, Adventures in the Screen Trade, and a moderately successful picture book I once wrote.

The site is a work in progress and I’ll be happy to respond to comments and requests. Do feel free to contact me.
