A good day,
I have been passionate about writing since I was little and the past few years I spent lots of time on this. Daily I create stories with my friends instead of the common "chatting" online. I made poetry but also lots of short stories and I currently am trying to improve my writing skills while I keep coming up with new ideas for stories. I make notes of them and hope that someday when I have enough skill to do it properly, I will write full books.
Furthermore I enjoy playing piano, creating videos, reading, studying, watching films/series/documentaries and these have caused me to become slightly obsessed with too many things. I love learning and I keep wanting to know more and more.
Thank you for ... read more

A rich life with a large family has given him many powerful experiences from which to draw inspiration. He came to writing relatively late in life after having spent many years exploring other art forms such as writing music for the piano and painting fine art. However, it is as a writer of short fiction, always with the strong message that he now pursues as a second career. Empowered to write by his many and sometimes strange life experiences, his stories nearly always contain a 'twist' or a strong moral message to make the reader think.

I’m a registered nurse who finally put pen to paper and started writing the stories that were hanging out in my head.
My love of medicine and science made for the perfect match (or storm depending on how you look at it) when writing books about ‘what if’s’. In Going Native two questions drove the story. What if science stepped in and stirred the pot while a child developed in the womb with no regard for the moral fallout, and what if medicine was used not only for the good of children but for what society deemed was an improvement in life for everyone? How would this affect people, their relationships, would even more taboos develop? (Okay more than two questions).

At 21, he took off with a friend for Africa and crossed the continent North to South through the Sahara, sometimes on foot, as their old Land Rover did not want to travel as far as they did.
This was, in fact, where he got the inspiration for his first published novel Secrets of the Dead Sea Scrolls, while holed up in an abandoned French Foreign Legion outpost called Fort Mirabelle in the middle of the desert in Algeria, where they stayed until the engine was repaired. Cold desert nights watching Bedouin camp fires in the distance and not knowing who was friend or foe was a great catalyst for an ... read more
