Born in East London in 1962. Darren's first writing success came in the mid 1990's, winning first place in a short story competition for a BBC Radio 4 arts program. The thrill of hearing his words read on Radio 4 drove him to write short stories of a dark and quirky nature before progressing to lengthier works. Darren then crafted his first novel ‘Turtle Island’, a crime thriller, which was picked up by an American publisher.
Darren is now a seasoned author with another novel, ‘Tripping’, a surreal black comedy described as chick-noir, published. The sequel to Turtle Island is now completed, entitled ‘Dark Country’, and a fourth novel is in-progress which is another stand alone book outside of his series of Georgina O’Neil crime thrillers.
