Thank you for visiting my page on Smashwords.

I am an Australian author, born in the UK, and have spent the past 20 years in the garrison city of Townsville, NQ. Writing runs in the family as my sister is a successful author.

With the literary market stacked with books on outback romances and Australian history I decided to go for the contemporary: an Aussie ex-pat. With my partner I have travelled widely across Australia & NZ, Singapore, Japan, Turkey, W. Europe, South Africa, USA, Canada and Central America - giving me plenty of riches to play with.

The Roman Nix series is set in Central America. The main character is a former Aussie soldier, with his lover, the quixotic Mishka. Though the characters are fictional, many of the scenarios are based on real-life events and / or experiences in my youth.

For reading pleasure I find it hard to go past a tense taught thriller or books that make me laugh but no tearjerkers for this little vegemite.
