For many years I have described myself as half mystic and half techno-freak. It is no more nor no less than the truth.
I have a background in science and engineering but, for very personal reasons, I believe in the reality of things we cannot
measure or completely explain - the things some call the mystic.
I far prefer to be surrounded by trees and flowers than in a city, but have grown fond of good food and creature comforts
and would not want to give them up.
I write about heroes and friendship because I think the modern world needs heroes now more than ever. I believe that most
people can be heroes given the right circumstances and anyone can be a friend.
If you want to know more about who I am, read the things I write - they are a reflection of my beliefs. In particular
the main female characters I use to populate my world of Fyrnlosing reflect different sides of me - who I have been, who I am,
and who I aspire to be.

Into The Fire
Years ago, when I was going through a rough time in my life, a friend of mine said: “Come with me to firewalk. It can help you.” Read More.
