I was born in Christchurch New Zealand and have, for a number of years lived in Auckland.
My qualifications are in engineering; however from the years 2000 to 2009 I dedicated my time to creative computer programming. In essence I developed software to run on the Windows platform and then marketed it.
It required some application of imagination to develop software and in 2009 I used this same imagination to write my first book. This was something I have always wanted to do and quite frankly, once I started I enjoyed it immensely.
Close by to where we live (that's my wife Julie, and me) there is a delightful bush lined stream where we walk most days. It's a beautiful natural oasis in suburban Auckland. This stream was where with a little imagination the two "Louie the Bee" books were "born".
