A little history:
Being a shy kid, I retreated into other worlds. I often daydreamed, drawing pictures of other places and other people. I created heroes and adventures in my head. Even though I was a slow reader, I plowed through my mum’s collection of Enid Blyton's Famous Five series.

Then I discovered The Hobbit, which led me to Lord of the Rings. I read so many fantastic stories after that. It was inevitable I would turn to writing.

In my teens and 20's I wrote 2 epic length novels. One finished at 219k words (yikes) and the other finished at 130k words. I couldn't get them published, and I'm not surprised. They were naive and unpolished.

For a long time afterwards I expressed my imagination through digital art and 3D animation. Apart from my day job as an animator, I got a number of creations published in Design Graphics Magazine, the Tolkien Society's internationally distributed bulletin, and a few other fantasy magazines in Australia. I even won a few awards along the way.

I am now writing again with as much zeal as I threw into my art. Along with writing fantasy and science fiction short stories, I also have a young adult fantasy series available, starting with Wielder's Prize in paperback and ebook, I have a Christian devotional, Cling to God: A 365 Day Devotional, Available as an ebook, paperback and hardcover.
