He has had four novels and a handful of short stories published by Crazy Ink and Bloodhound Books.

Sometimes I find myself slugging through a scene that is neither thrilling, nor amusing, but these are important to keep the book flowing, so I push on. I think that if I ever did experience this then I would just start writing something else. I am confidant that my stories eventually write themselves.

I am used to suddenly having a spare hour so have to write then, so I cannot afford writers block. I have to have the ability to turn on and off my muse like a switch. Turning on is never an issue, but there will be times when I will have to drag myself away from the keyboard in order to get some sleep before morning!(less)

Now it is having readers contact me saying how much they have enjoyed my book. It makes all of the hard work worth it.

I have been overwhelmed by the number of people who have expressed a desire to see another book with these characters in. I created them to entertain myself, so if others have enjoyed them too, then that is a huge bonus!(less)
