For as long as I can remember, I've made up stories. Initially to get out of trouble at home but later because of my love for books and reading. My early efforts featured my favourite book and TV characters. I had a taste for the dramatic even then which has carried over into my adult work. It was an easy decision to write for the Young Adult market, as Young Adult and children's fantasy makes up a large majority of my book collection. People often ask me why I write fantasy, and I always give the same answer. There are no rules. Anything is allowed, as long as it's believable. If the characters behave in a way people can relate to, it doesn't matter what their situation is. I tried romance and historical fiction but these efforts soon found their way into the Recycle Bin on my laptop.
I decided to aim at the ebook market. My first novel 'Sacrifice' was released in January 2012. This was followed in July 2012 with two connected books: 'The Hand Of Destiny Book 1 The Appointed', and 'the Hand of Destiny Book 2 The Betrayer'. The biggest wonder of my life is how I'm able to write a 200 plus page book but find it impossible to come up with two sentences for a birthday card.
Away from reading and writing books, I love playing piano for business and pleasure. Before concentrating on my book writing, I used to write songs as well. Maybe I should combine both passions and write a musical.
