I was born in Sheffield, England in 1962. Emigrated to Perth Western Australia in 1973 with my family. I found a passion for reading and creative writing at an early age. At 28 I enrolled in College and over the next 4 years completed a Diploma in Health Science in Remedial Massage Therapy before starting my own practice in this field. For ten year my work predominately focused on treating patients with muscular disorders incurred by chronic illness and physical disabilities. Although a very rewarding experience it was physically, mentally and emotionally demanding so I decided to close the door on that stage of my journey and went to work as an employee in the health industry. After turning 40 I began suffering with severe migraines. Their intensity and progression reached a point I could no longer function on a daily level. During the next 4 years I endured numerous medical procedures, lumbar punctures, spinal blocks, was prescribed copious medications and spent long periods of time in hospital. I was a very painful, depressing and dark period in my life. I reached a time where I didn't believe I could cope any longer and actually considered taking my own life. The thought of the distress this would bring to my family and friends altered my decision. This choice ultimately changed my destiny. That same night I had a vision. A book of empty pages opened up before me. Suddenly words began to appear, characters formed and a story manifested; one which would unite the worlds of science and spirituality. The next day I began writing Reflection Of Evil. It was a struggle at first working through physical pain and the stupefied effects of the medications but as the characters came to life, as the story took shape and as each chapter unfolded my health began in improve. Two years later as I wrote the final words I was well again. This experience taught me to NEVER GIVE UP. That under every dark cloud there truly is a silver lining. In due process I found Julie-Ann Harper, a publisher willing to assist in publishing and promoting my work. The overwhelming emotion I felt when I held the first printed copy of my novel was a moment I shall forever hold dear to my heart.
