I was born in Christchurch New Zealand in 1959 and I am currently resident on the Kapiti Coast just north of New Zealand's capital Wellington. I am a former journalist previously employed at the New Zealand Press Association where I was a sub editor and reporter. I have studied papers in Renaissance Literature and Twentieth Century Literature at Victoria University, Wellington.
I have also spent a number of years as a part-time song writer and rock musician and in the early 1990s recorded an album of original music with Kiwi Pacific Records.
I have had short fiction published in literary fiction magazines such as Landfall, Takahe and Bravado. I live close to the coast and enjoy walking in the summer sunshine on the beach.
