I am an author and writer from Perth in Western Australia. "The Well: Revealing the Hidden Nature of Reality" is my first published book.

What's the story behind your latest book?
I recently went through some major life changes of my own, which impacted me enormously. I suffered severe depression and thoughts of suicide. As a way of coping I started reading. Subjects such as psychology, philosophy, neurology, quantum physics and metaphysics fascinated me. It was like learning about a whole new perspective of life I never knew about. When I came out the other side of the depression I decided to write a book about what I had learnt. I wanted to share some of the new perspectives that had helped in my recovery.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
Writing and publishing became a whole new creative journey for me, as "The Well" is my first published book. I like being an independent author as I maintain all control over how I wanted the book to be published. Thanks to sites like Smashwords, the process has been very fulfilling.
A journey of self-discovery is always a difficult path to travel. At times you may wonder whether there is a true purpose and meaning behind those distressing events in your life. Maybe there is. The Well uses the fictional journey of Lilly, to peek behind the veil of your reality and share another perspective of what it means to be human.
