Meet Tony, an ordinary man on an ordinary flight. Well... Not quite. 


When his plane is hijacked, Tony swallows an archangel’s eyelash. Now part-angel, he enters Angeland. Passing through Heaven and the Realm of the White Mountain, he embarks on an incredible adventure. But Tony is never far from earthly influences.


To avoid disaster on an epic scale, seven archangels assemble at their Council. Together they try a variety of ideas to remove the eyelash, but will any prove a success?


Other work



My style meanders between metaphysical and satirical, is occasionally flippant, and touches on issues such as spirituality, love and science.



Prose on various subjects which typically have a quirky and philosophical slant.

  New: New York Blog

Satirical plays


Working in bureaucracies provides bountiful material for satire, normally coupled with a supply of colleagues willing to send themselves up by participating in drama.  I've written, directed and acted in a range of plays and songs, particularly in the UN.

My next novel - A Deluge of Wonders

Searching for inspiration on this but likely to involve mobile phones, pandemics, international organizations and reflections on the human condition.



I am British, recently French, and Brazilian by osmosis. My day job entails occasional bureaucratic absurdities but also the privilege of working for a bigger cause, which frequently provides a catalyst for creativity. My literary output over the last 20 years has been eclectic, including poetry (as yet  

unpublished); satirical plays, songs and sketches (each with unique performances); and Angeland (my first novel). Normally I live just over the border from Geneva with my impatient and adorable Franco-Brazilian wife and 30-odd plants.  Recently repotted to New York and back again.
