I’ve never done this before

Why the title scribbling advocate, you might well ask. It’s simple, I was a barrister who worked in the Courts in London principally defending those accused of crime, murder, robbery, burglary etc. The sex and violence but also some serious frauds. Since retiring I have written a novel using my experiences called ‘Crucial Evidence’.

I find friends are always asking me about cases they read about in the newspapers or they see reported on the TV so I thought it would be a good idea to explain why somethings happen the way they do in the Criminal Courts. Or at least why I think they have occurred. So if anyone has a question about stuff they’ve seen or heard, just ask. I can’t help on any ones individual cases and any way you wouldn’t want your personal affairs all over the internet would you.

I will also describe my search for a publisher and, how if I fail, my route to self publication of my novel.
