I've wanted to be a writer ever since I had some positive feedback from a teacher in high school. Rather than becoming the next Stephen King I became a husband and a father instead and I'm fortunate to have such a wonderful family. 

I enjoy writing young adult novels. I like fast paced action stories populated with interesting characters and I hope my writing reflects this. I started as a self published author, but I recently signed an unprecedented 8 book publishing deal with Text Publishing. 

My book, that started life as "The Steampunk Detective", has been re-edited and expanded, and is now being re-released as the first Jack Mason Adventure on the 26th of February 2014. It is entitled, "The Firebird Mystery". It will be available in bookshops throughout Australia and New Zealand on that date as well as on Amazon and at other online retailers. Hopefully it will appear in bookshops overseas at a later date. Here's the link on Amazon:

I also have other stories available on Wattpad including "Diary of a Teenage Superhero". Have a look if you get a chance.  

My other interests include Star Trek, Harry Potter, Glee, The Hunger Games books and chocolate. Always chocolate. I've never met a chocolate I didn't like!
