I was a technical teacher in the Victorian Education system, for a total of 29 years.
Forced to take an early retirement because of a hearing loss I began writing. Now I have completed 23 novels, most adventure romance but my favorite genre is Colonial Australian stories around the gold rush days on 1850. I also wrote scripts and was rewarded by having the initial script for the stage play of C.S. Lewis's The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. The play ran in all the Capital cities of Australia around four years ago.
I tried the American market and was successful almost immediately. My first book accepted was a mature age romance titled Love in the Afternoon,. Then another publisher accepted four other books and three short stories. A third publisher took another two of my books and now I have been offered two more contracts, one with Desert Breeze. All up I now hold nine contracts with seven of my books published in both e-form and paperback.
I lost my beautiful wife to leukemia in 2007 but her memory will always be with me.
I have converted some of my stories to movie scripts and hope to have success there but my first love is writing novels. My books and success can be found on my website.
