Born in England, I left aged 19, to discover the taste and feel of far different lifestyles. The draw was intense, often I felt a connection to those other lands. After years in Italy, and the Middle-East, like others before me I discovered America. Now I have a two-continent lifestyle, between Australia and the home of my heart, the USA.

Fascinated by the sound, the feel, and the effect of language, I found my voice through the written word. I wrote occasional articles for a west coast magazine, produced some theatre before a spell back in Europe to package and promote films.

A friend suggested I reinvent some of my spec scripts as novels, and I am delighted to share these stories.

Usually, I have two stories underway, and if I have a problem in one, I set it aside and allow a solution to present itself organically - usually, as I am about to go to sleep.(less)

Thief of Memories

As I thought about this book, I pondered the risks we take when falling in love. Few of us think of it as an adventure into the unknown, but in many cases, it is.

For the most part, the people we meet, date, and fall for, are decent people worthy of our love. But increasingly, particularly in the days of online dating, there are predators out to take advantage. Unfortunately, monsters do not alway Read more of this blog post »
