Background Information

Having spent nearly fifty years travelling around the World, and living for over ten of those years in the Far East, I collected a great number of notebooks in which I had jotted short stories about the countries I had lived in. On retiring from my profession as a music teacher and professional musican in 2005, I decided it was time to write a book. I decided I had enough life  experiences and data to write a Novel, and set about writing my first adventure thriller, set in Singapore,Bangkok,Hong Kong,and the Fiji islands.

It took me two and a half years, with countless rewriting to get the book to the stage ready for publishing, and I decided to use a company named  My first book is entitled 'MacDonald Island' and I am currently nearing completion of a follow- up thriller using some of the same characters from my first book.

My way of keeping myself motivated is to read lots of books in the genre I enjoy most-thrilers. Dan Brown, Clive Cussler, Dick Francis, Will Adam, are among my favourite writers. Stephen King once wrote; 'If you have no time to read, you don't have the tools or the time to write'. How true. It is very easy to lay off writing for a week or so, but the hardest bit is trying to motivate yourself to get started again!

I have a way of keeping my interest in writng and my ideas flowing; I write every day for at least two hours. To ensure I am positive about what I am going to write about, I  have a fully planned out plot for my story. I add ideas when they are good ones, but mostly stick to the plan I formed before I start to write a book.

With my regular routine, I find that I can write without any pressure or stress, and I keep the main reason for writing firmly in mind. I write because I enjoy it so much.
