I have just read a report on authors’ earnings which can be found at http://authorearnings.com/the-report/ It makes interesting reading for anyone who is considering what they should do about getting work published. This report confirms, by an investigation of the statistics from various industry sources, the conclusion I arrived at after attending the Author Lounge at the London Book Fair last year. There is nothing to be ashamed about if you decide to self-publish, in fact you may be doing yourself a favour if you do it properly i.e. have it edited and get a well-designed cover.
Born in Lancashire, Law degree from Sheffield University and MA in Creative Writing from Exeter. A barrister for twenty five years, who appeared in the Crown Courts in and around London.
When I retired we moved to live in Devon, first on Dartmoor, more recently overlooking the Exe Estuary. After twenty years I still feel an exile from London. Married, no children but own an affable Springer Spaniel. I love reading, walking and travel. I completed an MA in Creative Writing at Exeter University and have written three books, Crucial Evidence, Reluctant Consent and Legal Privilege, all set in London.
