His first novel Bad Friday was published in 1982 by Trinity Arts, Birmingham, and was short-listed for the Young Observer Fiction Prize later that year. Bad Friday was republished in 1985 by New Beacon Books (London/Port of Spain), and confirmed him as the first Black British born novelist to be published in the UK.
