Great ideas have always been brought to life by words and passion and a good book is always a constant companion through the good and bad times.

    

        I am a freelance writer based in Melbourne, Australia, where I was born and raised.  My career commenced at St. Martins Theatre, from there I went into TV and Film working on many mini-series and feature films in the field of production, which in turn led into the area of screenplay writing.  I have had a few screenplays optioned as well as working with other writers. I enjoy films, the theatre, music, books and I have spent the last 15 years working, developing, and honing my writing and storytelling abilities.   I have a genuine passion for this art form and love the creativity of bringing words and images to life.  I find novel writing the most rewarding of all.

      In 2006 I had my first fiction novel “A God Named Joe” published in the United Kingdom. "The Gods Of War" is my latest book.  I am currently working on three other books; two fiction and one non-fiction.  I have never locked myself into writing one specific genre.  I'm just into telling good stories, whether that be science-fiction, drama, romance, adult or children's.  And of course combining several only adds to the delightful and delectable mix. 

      In the final analysis when all is said and done, the main thing is that it is a good story regardless of what it is about.

The Gods Of War
“The Gods Of War” is my second book and came from an idea I had in my head for years which wouldn’t go away, until I exorcized it by putting it down on paper. The idea was planted in my head by an elderly war veteran, who I met at an age care facility, and during our conversation you could see the impact that war had on him, in the end, he said to me that he would just like to fight one more war – a war to end all wars. And from this statement came the idea of an eternal warrior, a soldier fighting in wars since the dawn of mankind, looking for a way to end the madness and futility of war forever. And the story grew from there. In many ways you could say that the book is about the stupidity of war and the lasting effect it has on those involved in it. The story is a mixture of action, drama and romance which will appeal to a wide variety of audience as it was always intended.

Tales From The Universe
"Tales From The Universe" is a collection of six short stories that I have put together. Although science fiction in nature they are very accessible, given their themes,to readers who might not take an interest in these kind of stories. But I can assure you that they are all thought provoking and entertaining.


Additional information

A recent interview I did with Judy Green on Nat Chat, a local chat show, is now up on You Tube. Because it is a community station I wasen't allowed to promote anything so I rambled on a couple of times so keep that in mind. However it does give insight into my background. You can check it out at www.YouTube.com/NatChat2008.
