I’m a writer and reader of fiction and live in Auckland, New Zealand.
While I have dabbled in non-fiction from time to time, my true love is crafting exciting stories that interest and move me. And hopefully have a similar impact on readers!
I mainly write fantasy and contemporary fiction and have had some short works published. I’m working on having a novel published too.
I was recently re-elected to the committee of SpecFicNZ, an organistion for writers of speculative fiction here in New Zealand. I am now the Treasurer, also known as the Unnamed Dragon.
In my day job, I’m a Fieldworker for the Muscular Dystrophy Association, and provide education, information, advocacy and support for people living with neuromuscular conditions.
I live with my beautiful partner, who is also a writer, and a somewhat neurotic siamese cat. The cat doesn’t write.
Phantom Feather Press is soon to release “The Best of Twisty Christmas Tales”. This anthology features stories from renowned writers Joy Cowley, David Hill, and Dave Freer. It also features my story, “Albert and the Christmas Fairy”.
My short story, “Recession” is one of those in the
anthology for charity project, “Baby Teeth: Bite-sized Tales of Terror”.
“Baby Teeth” is the winner of the 2014 Sir Julius Vogel Award for best collected work.
