Bio

 Past to Present

In the early fifties I immigrated to Australia as a youngster with my “ten pound pom” family. I spent my boyhood in Victoria and my teenage years in South Australia, following all the sci-fi TV series of Star Trek, Lost in Space, Dr Who and Time Tunnel. Then, in my adulthood, I watched sci-fi movies including Star Wars, Battlestar Galactica, and Star Gate. I have always loved English Literature and started writing romantic poetry, graduating to my first non-fiction book in 2003. A close friend of mine recognised I had the talent to write novels and suggested I should be entertaining readers with the sci-fi genre that I love. He read my first book Sentinels of Tzurac – Terra Major Under Threat and enjoyed it so much that he encouraged me to write sequels. After retiring from a career of forty years in the public service, I am now writing full time and applying my martial arts training and my interest in science to write believable and exciting sci-fi stories.
