Hi, and thank you for visiting my site

I grew up in Kent, England when petrol was cheap, roads were empty and you could get a job with two o-levels – which I did…

After a successful 28-year career in BAE SYSTEMS as Senior Software Systems Designer, and later, Project Manager, difficult circumstances drove me to a breakdown, losing everything.

Out of the darkness I started writing fantasy fiction. In 2010, I hit No1 for Epic Fantasy on Amazon, and surprisingly knocked The Hunger Games from the top slot in Waterstones. I began breaking records for the most sold new author at book signings and was called to do talks.

Re-finding one’s mojo is a liberating experience

I continued writing and also a made a business based on merging fiction writing techniques with business copy.

It created a niche, discarding tired credential-based marketing monologue with an emotionally charged, story-style alternative, engendering likeability with potential clients, while subliminally providing a strong, credible persona.

In response to an expanding need for self-publishing services, REDBAK Publishing was born, specialising in first-time authors.

REDBAK provides the services for creating high-quality self-published books for people, while I deliver intense, high-value and engaging structured courses and workshops:

  • Create a Compelling Business Book
  • How to Sell Thousands of Books
  • Convert to a Captivating New Business Bio
  • Become a Fiction Writer
  • Get Yourself into Print – The Self-Publishing Revolution

And I guarantee – working with me – the outcome will be better by Miles.”

    Hi Miles did the 2nd book get released yet? I have been looking. Was lovely meeting you in Maidstone last year. My autographed copy is still untouched and air sealed. Hope your family and yourself are well.


    • Hi Lewis, nice to hear from you! I hope you and your family are well too.

      Book two is planned for a June release, and as long as no significant plot problems arise from the check being done now, all should be well for that date.

      So I look forward, hopefully, to seeing you then 🙂


    • Hi Lewis, just a quick update that The Walkers of Legend book 2 (Legends Awakening) has a release date of 25 September. If you want an email to let you know of book signings, there is a newsletter now available. You can sign up through http://www.thewalkersoflegend.co.uk. Hope to see you at one.

      All the best

    • Hi Michael, delighted to hear you enjoyed book one, and thanks for letting me know. Yes, book two will be available in the US in paperback through Amazon, although it takes longer to get proofed compared to local outlets. If you sign up to The Walkers of Legend newsletter it will be in there when it’s published for US.
