Born in New Zealand and currently live somewhere by the beach in the Horowhenua. Working part-time as a postie and writing in my spare time. Requiem is my first novel. I've finished my second novel (also sci-fi) and am currently submitting to agents while I work on my third.
Feel free to add me on Goodreads or leave a review either here on Smashwords or Goodreads.

Requiem is also available on Amazon Books for $0.99.
A reluctant priest and his empty-headed daughter, an unfaithful husband with his equally unfaithful wife, and a single brother with a secret he must get off his chest. In one evening an intricate web of lies will untangle. An illegitimate child, a sinful moustache, an incorrigible faith in Yoda. Secret lives will crumble, shame will remain. And Paddington may well be the last one standing.
It is the early stages of the 22nd century. The Atlas Gates, wormholes built by an extinct alien race, now connect many of the star systems in the Milky Way. Seline Esher reluctantly returns to Earth upon hearing news of her long forgotten mother. What she discovers soon has her fighting for survival against sinister forces, both human and alien, that may well threaten the entire galaxy.
A great guide for basic formatting in Open Office. Step by step instructions that are easy to follow and that helped me get my book set up for publishing on Smashwords. I tried Mark Coker's formatting guide, but, since I don't use Microsoft word and was unexperienced with the processes on Open office, I found it difficult to follow.
So I downloaded this guide and used it in conjunction with Mark Coker's formatting guide and found the process much easier.
I'm still looking for an alternative to the 'nuclear method' so I don't have to re-apply the italics through my entire document when I want to upload, but I'm not sure there is one.
I hope Mark Coker sets up a link to this book to make the upload process a little easier for those who don't use Microsoft Word. Either way, I'm happy I found this guide. Thanks to Leona Davis for creating it and making it freely available.
