I was born in Christchurch New Zealand and have, for a number of years lived in Auckland.

My qualifications are in engineering; however from the years 2000 to 2009 I dedicated my time to creative computer programming. In essence I developed software to run on the Windows platform and then marketed it.

It required some application of imagination to develop software and in 2009 I used this same imagination to write my first book. This was something I have always wanted to do and quite frankly, once I started I enjoyed it immensely.

Close by to where we live (that's my wife Julie, and me) there is a delightful bush lined stream where we walk most days. It's a beautiful natural oasis in suburban Auckland. This stream was where with a little imagination the two "Louie the Bee" books were "born".

Escape in a warm anthropomorphic tale that draws strong emotional responses. A story for the mature reader. It's about an insect community living an idyllic streamside life. Blissful complacency turns to a realisation that all is not well when the community's future is threatened by human activity. Some special powers enable the insects to deal with pending threats. Contains intrigue and mischief!
