In my writing I take a particular interest in exploring various human experiences and perspectives, from the protagonist to the antagonist. I am a ‘genre agnostic’ author, meaning I write across a variety of genres, including historical, crime, and psychological fiction, suburban noir and supernatural suspense. I love to write short form fiction, including novellas, novelettes, short stories and flash fiction.

I believe that everyone has a story to tell, but not everyone has the desire to be a storyteller. I love to use my writing to help people share their stories in the wider community, inspiring and moving stories that might otherwise remain untold. I provide an unbiased insight into various topics and experiences, allowing the reader to make up their own mind and come to their own conclusions about the subject matter. I enjoy writing creative nonfiction because of the creative licence the genre affords the author. Creative nonfiction also provides a way for people to tell their stories but maintain their privacy.

I am working on making my books available in paperback. For now, you can purchase eBook copies directly from my website. By purchasing books directly, you are helping self-published authors like me earn more per copy. However, my books are also available from Kobo and Google Play Books.
