He has written biographies on Sir Terence Rattigan, Cary Grant and Frederick West and regularly contributes to magazines and newspapers around the world. His interest in true crime writing has led to numerous podcasts and television series including True Crime Podcast Blood Ties and Murder by the Sea for CBS Reality TV.
