This website is about me as a historian and a writer. You’ll find a biographical sketch, details about the books I have written, what I am doing now, and some information about my other writing and broadcasting. Plus, some links to Twitter and Facebook as well as other contact details.
My most recent books are The Thirties: an intimate history and The Blitz: the British under attack both published by Harper Press in 2010 and both now in paperback. I am now delving deep into Britain in the 1920s for my next book - and also researching an amazing provincial murder that took place in 1935.
