What's the story behind your latest book?
it's the conversation between me and a stranger; all about the meanings behind all of my tattoos
What motivated you to become an indie author?

What are you working on next?
A songbook and story about visiting another dimension in an OBE

Spiritually I think it's about evolution and learning, trying to do better and living in the now
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Walking and listening to music, doing yoga and working out
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
Roald Dahl were the first books I read and I loved the way that he could paint a picture with words and you'd find it coming to life in your own minds eye. Childhood is really about storytelling and fantasy, I'm a child at heart.

I took a selfie and then edited it on my phone, in an image editing app I built a background and added text, saved it as a jpeg and job done
