I am a middle-aged accountant with no formal training in the dark arts of writing, but don't let that put you off - I now consider myself self-taught! I love quirky, humorous, writing with a dark soul, and so that is what ends up in my books. My main influences are Douglas Adams and Stephen King. If you put them in a blender with a large helping of dark matter and a light sprinkling of my DNA, it might spit out one of my books. Or it might not. If you read something I've written, then you have my eternal thanks and I sincerely hope you enjoyed it. My second novel, The Ticket, a thriller/bloodbath centered around greed and revenge, and set in a remote location in 1980's South Australia, is imminent, and a sequel to Planet 42, The Source, is forming deep in my mind. As I continue to develop my craft, enter competitions, and approach publishers in the hope of one day having a manuscript accepted by the literary overlords, I do hope you can join me on the journey - it promises to be one hell of a ride.
