I am a journalist and writer. I've written ten novels on subjects ranging from the atomic bombs of World War II to the greatest and most enduring murder mystery of the 20th Century: the Lord Lucan scandal. Though I'm probably best known for being a reformed Tabloid reporter. I was The Sun's New York Correspondent when Bill Clinton was romping in Washington DC with Monica Lewinsky. I have lectured to thousands of students and hundreds of aspiring novelists - and for me, these talks are always the most enjoyable part of being a writer.
"This was a superb evening with an inspiring speaker whose enthusiasm and experience made it seem possible that we can all be writers" - Sheila Grant, Ayr Writers' Club
"When teaching my editorial staff, Bill had them practically eating out of his hand. They simply loved it” - Ingo Capraro, Editor, Die Son, South Africa
"Bill performs with gusto, without ever losing sight of journalism’s serious purpose” - Andrew Calcutt, University of East London
“Bill has never failed to grab my journalism students’ attention to deliver pithy, thought-provoking lectures” - Steve Harrison, Liverpool John Moores University
"An outstanding raconteur whose lectures are always greatly appreciated by our students” - Alex Lewczuk, Lincoln University.
