I ran away to sea when I was seventeen, and twelve years later I was captain of my own ship. Months and years spent sailing across the oceans and visiting foreign ports has allowed my imagination to thrive, something which I have tried to translate into my writing. 

Asides from the sea, reading and writing books is my passion. My first published novel, Orion Rising, is a thriller/mystery set in a dystopian future - a genre that fascinates me - with a slightly nautical flavour. I am currently working on the sequel, which I find a lot easier to write than this bio.
