Welcome to my website.
The Nevada desert is a far cry from my birthplace of England and that of the countries in Southern Africa where I was raised.
I am currently a partner of a small computer software company that was started in California in 1982, but in 2003, my partner and I moved the company to Las Vegas, Nevada.
Besides writing, I enjoy traveling, and have been fortunate to enough to explore the world extensively. Bhutan, Machu Picchu and the Galapagos Islands are just a few of my favorite trips. When I am not writing, I enjoy live theater, concerts, most kinds of music, and current affairs.
I am the author of the three fictional novels listed below. I always enjoy hearing from my readers as well as other writers. Please feel free to reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
