I survived the frantic years before discovering how much peace there is contained in a pen or a keyboard.

Background Information

I have come to writing relatively late in life after a varied career in the fields of Architecture and Music.

I joined the British merchant Marine as a junior deck officer. When I came ashore after three years to do my Second Officer examinations, I fell in love and did not return to the career which occupied all of my father's working life.

I joined the Belfast Fire Service as a fireman but when the shooting and bombing commenced, not wanting to be decorated with a posthumous bravery medal, I left Ireland and came to the sunny climes of Perth.

I went back to night school and gained my qualifications as a draftsman. I still do this on a contract basis.

During the time since leaving the navy, I have played guitar and formed numerous bands with my sisters and brothers. (Who came to this country after me.) We were support acts for many overseas artists.

And then I discovered writing.

I have written four novels and numerous short stories. My latest work is set in USA and the two main characters are Rose and David. She originates from a wealthy Northern Pennsylvanian family, while David hails from the Projects of Green Point, NY. Their lives slowly converge throughout the story, and they face many perils along the way.



Birth Place
Belfast,  Northern Ireland

Junior Cert. Gce. Advanced GCE (all UK educational quals) Diploma in Architectural Design and draftsmanship, Diploma in Navigation (British Navy).

Additional Information

Four self-published novels. Still waiting for the big break. Have sold nearly 6000 copies of my books with the help of extended family and loyal friends who, like me, believe in my writing.
