My first novel is a romantic fantasy about the return of Jesus Christ to modern day Manila to try and sort out the problems of the world - yet again! My second novel "Just a Drop in the Ocean", a long distance love story, is completed and should be published later in 2015. The sequel to "The Second Coming" - "The Rise of the AntiChrist" is my current project and is around 75% complete.
As an expatriate New Zealander living in Manila, The Philippines, with my wife and two step-daughters, I have finally found the peace and joy I was always searching for.
At age 55, after careers in Finance and Journalism, I finally discovered my true passion in life - writing and I truly am now "living the dream"; writing full-time.
Life is very much a journey and as a "newbie" to this industry, I am learning all the time. I love the support and encouragement that the writing community, especially the independent authors, give each other. It's amazing!
Outside of writing my other passions are sport, politics, reading and my awesome family.
