I am a very young 74-year-old Australian man of Irish and French descent. 

I have a beautiful and supportive and, at times, not so patient wife. She is an inspiration having struggled with MS (Multiple Sclerosis) since her early twenties. Yes, near on 50 years...nearly twenty five of them in an electric wheelchair.

Against doctor's advice, we went ahead and had two beautiful children who are our joy and pride and now we have
four gorgeous grandchildren.

Last Christmas we welcomed Elliot Gray Harpur into the family a baby brother for our grand daughter and new cousin for our daughters two boys. Needless to say it's been busy. But since I'm now retired I can follow a dream to write a great book...a trilogy in fact.

After almost falling for a self publishing trap I was then guided to just avoid a vanity publishing push for stardom.before Thank God I stumbled upon Wattpad.

Not knowing much about publishing except what I learnt from Bryce Courtenay, yes that Bryce Courtenay, of The Power Of One fame. Luckily I resisted the temptation to self publish before a fool and his retirement money twere soon parted.

I hope you enjoy my books as much as I enjoy writing for you.
