I left Perth, Australia to go East and find fame and fortune in the music business as a long-haired rock guitarist. I wrote poems and music, and my band used to open for some pretty big groups in my wild days. I gave it all up for love and got married (as you do when the right one comes along). Then, real life took over, children came along and I threatened to write a book for so many years my long-suffering wife eventually pushed me into it by buying me a laptop and said: "No more excuses, do it." And so began this amazing journey.
My first book, Forever Night, was contracted and published by The Totally Entwined Group UK's now defunct Evidence Press. That it was followed by a trilogy, comprising of Domin8, The Vigilante Taxi and Burial Ground. Repo, saw me return to two characters from Forever Night as new private investigators trying to save a man from jail for a murder he did not commit.
I next wrote a beautiful love story/thriller about Jenny, who travels back in time to save the future of the world, and falls in love in the past. This was picked up by my new publisher: The Wild Rose Press of NY. They have also contracted a trilogy, called The Deadly Glimpses. Book 1 is called Glimpse, Memoir of a Serial Killer, and has just been released. Book 2, Glimpse, The Beautiful Deaths is due out soon.
Thrillers and crime genres have always fascinated me, and in particular, the dark world of serial killers. I love a good, unputdownable, thriller. You know, the kind you just want to read one more chapter of at three in the morning before bed, but you have to be up at six to go to work. Have I succeeded in creating stories that can take people to that place? Boy I hope so.
