The only references in this article are autobiographical pieces published in the Daily Mail. I'm unable to find even the briefest reviews of this author's novel, Balance of Power, although it was published by a reputable publisher (Coronet). Fails WP:AUTHOR and WP:GNG.

  • Delete I can't find any reliable sources; I concentrated on his novel, but found nothing usable. --Colapeninsula (talk) 17:01, 4 June 2012 (UTC)

  • Delete. This is sourced by only one link, and that's to the Daily Mail, which is not exactly the most respected of papers. It's pretty much a glorified tabloid and not much better than the National Enquirer when you get down to it. A search brings up no other sources that could be considered reliable and showing notability. This could probably be speedied, to be honest. I'll tag it accordingly.

  • Comment Sorry, it isn't a candidate for speedy deletion, as there is an assertion of notability through an award and through publication in a national newspaper. Personal feelings about the paper are irrelevant here. Remember - CSD#A7 is only valid if there is no assertion of notability (and the assertion doesn't need to be backed up with references). This is why we have AFD - to check if the assertions are valid. Stephen! Coming... 12:03, 18 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Comment. Unfortunately this will have to waste more time on AfD, as the speedy was declined because he "won an award", despite there being no mention of what the award is and a search providing not information as to what that award is either. (Or that even if he'd been awarded one, that it would be notable.) I would like to note that the Amazon author page is almost word for word from this page, so there's a copyvio going on here as well.

    • Comment. FWIW, I agree with Stephen!. I felt that the article's claims were sufficient to make WP:CSD or WP:PROD inappropriate, so I brought the article here instead. He is, after all, a published author. Pburka (talk) 00:01, 20 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Delete - No indication that he passes the guidelines of WP:AUTHOR. I was unable to find any third party sources referring to him. Rorshacma (talk) 21:42, 18 June 2012 (UTC)
