AUTHOR, ADVENTURE SEEKER, DAD.
Born and raised in Dartmouth, England, I've led a slightly eclectic life all over the world. A Jack of All Trades, (not my words) I draw from my experiences as a firefighter, yacht captain, tree surgeon, sailing instructor, farm hand, and avid poker player, to create colourful characters in my stories. As a licensed pilot, I really enjoy flying helicopters, light aircraft, paramotors and gyrocopters - but that once in a lifetime opportunity where I was handed the controls of a Spitfire, has been hard to beat.
On other occasions, I've crossed Europe on a motorcycle (because who doesn't like a good bike ride); skippered yachts worldwide; and explored, dived, gold panned and volunteered in Central America. Trained in Maritime Anti-Piracy Techniques and Firearms, skill’s that have come in handy on several occasions, I also serve proudly as a part-time captain for Sea Shepherd marine conservation group on anti-poaching campaigns.
While I enjoy 'adventuring' (and dangling from high places), I'm also a bit of an introvert (and maybe even slightly anti-social). I try to make up for that by sharing some of my own weird wit and varied (for lack of a better term) lifestyle through writing action-adventure suspense novels, like Golden Horizon. Though not sure for how long, I'm currently in Brittany, France, (working on my next novel) and like all my writing, I can only hope I manage to take you on an suspenseful, action-packed adventure, and maybe give you a chuckle along the way.
