Welcome to my new site. The purpose of this site is really threefold:

Firstly, I've always been frustrated that there's never been a single site where I can showcase my books, especially the Cambridge English for ... series, which I edit. So at last I've got a web address that I can use whenever someone asks me to 'show me your series'. I've also created a bookshop page where people can buy the books directly from Amazon.

Secondly, I'm going to use this blog to bring together the various bits of writing I do elsewhere. I've had an ESP blog for a few years, Specific English, which has been badly neglected over the years but which still attracts a surprising number of hits and comments. I've also created a grammar blog, GRRRammar, which I've got high hopes for, but which is still waiting for its first proper post. I also post occasionally on the English360 blog, and I'm going to start posting on the English360 for Engineers teacher training blog very soon too. So my plan is to copy all those posts into a single blog here.

Thirdly, I've got lots of big ideas for taking the world of ESP into new directions. If I ever get time to put these plans into practice, I'll use this website to do it.

A couple of important things to note about this site. Although there are a lot of references to Cambridge University Press, this site has nothing to do with Cambridge. I'm just promoting my own books, most of which happen to be published by Cambridge ... so far at least.

The other thing to note is that the site is very much a work in progress. I've tried to put at least something on every page, but I knew that if I waited til everything was ready before publishing, I'd never get round to it. So apologies in advance if some of the pages feel a bit empty.

So I hope you find something useful or interesting on these pages.
