BIOGRAPHY

After a successful career of over 30 years as a graphic designer, and retirement looming, I am indulging myself and turning my hand to the art of wordsmith. I've always been an avid reader of fiction, historical fiction, thriller, mystery, crime ... and science fiction, in my earlier years aeons ago.
My hope is to provide my readers with an entertaining, immersive and thought-provoking experience — one they'll not soon forget — and one that will have them asking me for more.
Originally from Sydney, Australia, I moved to America in 1999 and now live with my wife, Trish, Sydney, our 12 year old Border Collie, and one cat, The General (Bugsy), in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States.

      • That's a very good question and one I am tackling right now. Historical fiction has always caught my attention and among my favorite authors of that genre is Jack Whyte. The detail he incorporates into his stories is absolutely intriguing, so much so that he has inspired me to tackle my own historical fiction concept. I have working on it for nearly 7-8 years, most of which has been devoted to research, and I am now close to finishing the 5th rewrite and hope to have it ready for publishing late 2019 or early-to-mid 2020. At the moment the working title is THE ARCHER'S DIARY.

    • Have you ever incorporated something that happened to you in real life into your novels?

      • Not as yet. But my mind is incubating several ideas that could very well include some intriguing 'real' situations from my earlier years.

      • Without an eye-catching cover design and title, even the best of books can be overlooked by ardent readers, especially for those of us who are not fortunate enough to have well-established names such as Patterson, King, Clancy, and the like. I have over 30 years experience as a graphic designer in the publishing industry and hope, by now, I have a good grasp on cover design so I prepare my own. But the majority of writers are not so fortunate and to those I highly recommend they search out a designer who can produce a cover that will get their writing into the hands of as many readers as possible.
