    • I am an expatriate Kiwi (New Zealander) living in the beautiful islands of The Philippines.

      After a career in finance and journalism, I finally discovered what my true passion in life is - WRITING!

      I now live in Manila, with my wife and two step-daughters, where I write full-time.

      At age 55, I suddenly realised I had suppressed my passion and my bliss for my entire life. No more! This is my calling and my love and I will pursue it now for the rest of my life.

      My first novel was a romantic fantasy about the return of Jesus Christ to modern day Manila to try and sort out the problems of the world - yet again! "The Second Coming" was published by Pentian Publishing in June 2015 and is available from Amazon, Google Play and iBooks.

      My second novel "Just a Drop in the Ocean", a romance that spans two continents and a lifetime is completed and I hope to self-publish that by the end of 2015.

      The sequel to "The Second Coming" - "The Rise of the AntiChrist" is also completed and currently with Pentian for publication. A tentative release date for this is December 1 2015.

      The third and final book in the series; "Holy War" is my current project and I hope to finish that by Christmas 2015.

        • I am a voracious reader and generally read about two to three kindle books a week.

          I focus entirely on "indie" authors and am always happy to read my author friends' work.

          My favourite indie authors at this time; not in any particular order are:
          Rachel McGrath
          Colin Griffiths
          Jana Petken
          Hayden Bradford
          Angela Gascoigne and
          Cathy Perkins

          There are many, many more that I have read and enjoyed. I will read any genre and will always review the books I read on Goodreads, my website: and wherever I happened to buy the book from.

        • Not a big movie fan, but tend to watch Chick Flick's with my wife and comedy.

          My absolute favourite movies of all time; again in no particular order are:
          The Hobbit (all of them)
          Should I Stay

        • Country music and seventies music is still my staple diet when I'm listening

        • No time for television these days, although I do make an exception for College Sport here in The Philippines:

          UAAP Volleyball
          UAAP Basketball
          NCAA Basketball

        • Get all my news from just two places:


        • My Wife
          Rhonda Byrne

        • Henry Ford: "If you think you can, or you think you can't; you're right!"

        • Reading
          Watching Sport
