For someone who would go on to write at a later age, the house I grew up in was conspicuous for its lack of books.

Unlike most authors who seem to have been writing since they were able to hold a pen, I was too busy exploring the bush, fishing, hunting and generally doing foolish and dangerous things, to sit down long enough to write anything even if I had caught the bug.

In my turbulent teenage years I discovered poetry, and became fascinated by the way words could work magical transformations in the reader’s mind.

Around this time I also made efforts to understand my place in the universe. I haunted bookstores and local libraries, seeking out those semi-banned books about the occult tucked away on lower shelves in the back racks. Attempting to hide them like that only increased their mystery and appeal. As I have grown old my interest in spirituality and our existence as soul has increased.

I write Fantasy and Poetry. My first published work is the Fantasy novel, John Bowman’s Cave. I am currently working on a sequel, The Rory.

I’d love to hear from you, so feel free to contact me.
