I am nowadays mostly resident at an English coastal retreat; plus Glastonbury (my spiritual home). I am the author of several non-fiction books, including "The Highgate Vampire"; "The Vampire Hunter's Handbook"; "Mad, Bad and Dangerous to Know"; "From Satan To Christ"; and "The Grail Church." The only fiction I have published is a sequel to Bram Stoker's gothic masterpiece which I titled "Carmel."
