I've been writing for years, but now I've found my voice and style. I hope you like it as much as everyone else who has read it. :-)
When did you first start writing?
In primary school, my first story was about a family who lived on a floating speck of dust. Later, I tried to get back to that innocent story in my teens but I was too serious, too full of conditioning from the environment around me. A few years ago I tried the NaNoWriMo Challenge and found my style.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I had worked in a publishing company as a proofreader and learnt how the industry works. I knew being published would only be second to winning the lottery, so I went indie. There are some who thank me for it.
Carter and his family move to a new city with a promise of clean skies, peaceful neighborhoods and good jobs. All he cares about is surviving school and having fun on his Xbox9. Until one day things go a little weird...

Gift of Green Fire and Other Strange Encounters
on Jan. 22, 2013
An excellent collection of fantasy short stories which stress the environment and the consequences of our misuse of Earth. The style moves towards a poetic, classic and lyrical 3rd person POV, slipping occasionally into 1st person POV using present tense to bring the reader closer to the main characters. Although there are some clunky and briefly described moments, this does not take away the effect of the stories, reminiscent of Blood Music, Brave New World and other classics such as Gulliver’s Travels. ’Water Watchers’ is my favourite, while I feel ’Gift of Green Fire’ could easily be expanded and turned into a successful 3 book trilogy.

Excellent Erotica / Fantasy Adventure
Although not my normal genre, with many graphic though sensual sex scenes between the character Mandy (Sable) and her very own 'sex god', Rial, I was surprised how this story gripped me until the very end. After reading the Prologue, I was a little heistant to continue but as the story kicked in I was hooked. This is a well-written and excellent example of an erotic 'creature' thriller, the creatures being 'waterkin' who are more powerful and connected to their 'Prime'-al desires than humans. It is interesting to find out how Mandy finds her true identity through both fear and love.
I recommend anyone (over 18) who likes the Erotica / Fantasy genre to read this book!
