Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I began writing in 2008
What's the story behind your latest book?
The area of peak performance has fascinated me ever since I attempted to cycle the long and hilly 96km in the Sydney to Wollongong race back in the '90s, with disastrous results. My performance that day was spectacularly dismal due to my poor preparation and complete lack of knowledge, but the hard lessons I learned from it have never left me.

Performance is a funny thing though - it means different things to each of us and there is no doubt that it is one think to perform and yet another to achieve success. It was this link between performance and success that inspired me to discover what some of the world's top performers are doing that enables them to be the best in their fields. Innate talent and motivation are common threads, but quite often they have physical tactics or mental strategies they've developed and honed over the years to gain an advantage, and stay at the top of their game.
