I am 66 years old, fit and healthy, look much younger. I was born in New Zealand and have travelled extensively around the Pacific region. I am a trained teacher and have numerous degrees in English, language teaching and Creative Writing. I speak several languages and have worked in numerous different jobs. I have been a cook, a labourer, a property developer, a community worker, a professional musician, an actor, a legal adviser as well as a teacher of many different subjects. I have been writing since I was seven years old. I completed numerous plays, directed and acted in them, wrote three short books as well as poetry before the age of 13. After that I wrote mainly poetry until I completed my first novel in my twenties. Since then I have released five albums of original music, had numerous plays and musicals performed at various venues including the Aotea Centre and the Pumphouse, had poetry published in magazines as well as online and completed another novel for my Masters in Creative Writing. I am now working on my fourth novel.
