  • Author Bio

    Since 1988 I have been writing and publishing books. In 2009 I decided to publish my books as e-books on this and other websites.

    Writing and self-publishing became expensive, especially the marketing end of the business. I experienced little problems with my first book 'Closing The Gap' however after writing and self-publishing six other books the printing costs out-weighed the cost of production.

    At this stage of my writing I am converting from writing true life stories to fictional or better known - storytelling and it's difficult I can tell you. I'm giving it my best.

    Reading is a passion. When I read I try to place myself in the writer's seat and endeavour to work out how they wrote the story. I enjoy reading interesting stories filled with passion, desire with a happy ending. If you have a look at my website all of my books are exhibited plus stories I have written and published.
