I am an Australian author, husband, and father who loves to write sci-fi, fantasy and weird westerns stories.

I have also been a wargamer and computer gamer since … well, a long time and I have been fortunate to write professionally for the wargaming industry – it’s been a childhood dream come true. No doubt gaming has helped my imagination when it comes to writing my stories.


What I’m Working On Now:

  • I’m currently writing the first draft of The Sky Fire Chronicles book 3
