My books

I’ve been a published and self-published writer since 2011. In 2013 I published my first book, Ooh Yes I Do! which featured in Pink news, Pink Weddings magazine, and the Brighton & Hove wedding brochure.

2019 will see the release of my first novella, Black Lion Cottage, book one in the series Spirits of the Past. The book unfolds the untold story of Protestant brewer Deryk Carver who lived in the 16th century Black Lion pub in Brighton. One evening he is arrested. Nine months later he is burned at the stake in Lewes and becomes the first martyr of Sussex. In 2019 Matt quits his job. He buys a cottage from an anonymous seller and rents it out as a holiday-let. There are eleven bookings and guests get caught up in unexpected and supernatural encounters. Is Deryk’s spirit haunting the cottage?
