I was born in New Zealand and reside in the country. I am an artist, poet and writer. My background is a lecturer and teacher with specialist knowledge in art history and classical studies. My first novel was published in 2003 by Hazard Press entitled Day of Grass. A to J, the second novel was published by Handmade Press in 2012 as was my recent collection of poems called Metaphysical Midnight Cowboy Blues, which came out in 2013. My particular passions are in the areas of art, philosophy, history and religion.
An existential encounter involving the clash of cultures in the twenty-first century where fanaticism meets urbane nihilism in a troubled postmodern world. The story,told through the eyes of a New York Jew, post 9/11, unravels on a European coach tour where he encounters a disparate group of characters that test and provoke his awareness of who and what he is with devastating consequences.
