After being persuaded not to pursue my dream of becoming a writer after leaving school, and never really letting that go, it has taken almost a lifetime and a complete lifestyle change to now realise that dream. Giving up a 25 year career in corporate life and city living, along with my wife and our Scottie dog Clyde, I made a tree change to country Victoria and with it, the opportunity to at last become a writer. My first novel, ‘The Missionary's Son’, was released on 30th of September, 2016. My second novel, ‘The Broadsword and the Englishman’ is scheduled for release in June 2018.
As a writer of Historical Fiction, I am inspired by the opportunity to bring to life, events of a time in history.
