A severe addiction to Post-apocalyptic literature combined with a lifetime of a very rural existence, first in central Maine and now in northern Idaho naturally led to both of Deirdre's novels: The Jade Seed and After the Cure.
Deirdre's education in anthropology and peace and conflict studies prompted the central idea for After the Cure: How do people live with each other after doing horrendous things to each other? How do societies put themselves together or continue to exist after terrible wars? What is day to day existence like when such violence exists within living memory? Though fiction can never come close to the reality of living with atrocity, it can help us ask important questions about our world an ... read more

Starting writing poetry about two years ago. Very much a surprise to me. Shared my "scribes" with family and friends and got positive feedback. Felt adventurous and joined a few poetry websites to see what other poets thought. Tremendous responses all around. A few negative reviews which gave me more motivation to continue writing. A friend suggested I get published, so I did. it's been a long road but the sense of accomplishment has been fantastic.

Erotic literature is like the finest chocolate. Even if you don't always know what you are going to get, I try to make sure you savor every moment. Erotica without setting and plot is just sex. It's through making people and circumstances as real as possible that is the spice of erotica.
I'm a lone amateur author, fully employed at 50+ hrs a week so not writing as often, with a new great editor and friend Teagan O'Stevenson, so hopefully there won't be as many typos as my earlier works. If you spot one feel free to let me know and I'll fix it promptly and try and make it worth it for you with a free book if someone else hasn't already pointed it out.

I came to the United States in 1966 for higher education at a time when Iran and America were strongly allied against the Soviet Union.

Although I was born in the United Kingdom I am for all intents and purposes a Kiwi. My family immigrated to New Zealand shortly after my first birthday and we have been here ever since. Growing up I had a wonderful childhood full of imaginative play and make-believe worlds and, to be perfectly honest, nothing much has changed. I am still as much a day dreamer as I ever was. It is this overactive imagination that has led me into the world of the novelist.
