Writing & Journalism

Seven novels have been published in Simon’s TV Detective series.

The books focus on a television reporter who covers crimes, but gets so involved in the cases he helps the police to solve them.

They’ve become known as the TV Detective series, which is where the name of Simon’s website comes from.

The stories have been praised as a fresh and distinctive approach to crime writing.

Simon has also written a range of short stories, a play, and even a pantomime.

He has worked as a journalist for 25 years, mostly with the BBC as a News Correspondent across television, radio and online, covering stories ranging from terrorist attacks and other serious crime to business, economics and politics.

He has also been a reporter for ITV, and independent radio, as well as a producer of documentaries, news programmes and bulletins.

Simon continues to work as a journalist, regularly contributing freelance articles to newspapers and magazines.
