I love writing books. Not to make a fortune just to help me resolve thoughts in my head.

 Try it, it's great for mental wealth. All three of these were self published.

Praying Mantis

We all want to leave our mark on the world. Sometimes we get too obsessed by our desire to achieve this.


 When an author (who is white, middle class and really irritating) why thanks for that compliment, comes together with a young, pain in the butt, lead character (touché) all hell breaks loose.


This is the story of a character in a book (don’t I have a name?) focus, who is trying a novel approach to getting on in life. She needs to overcome multiple, significant challenges including sexism, racism and glass ceilings to get to the top. (The author is another major challenge. Yes, he might have created me but I have some input of my own thank you very much.)


 Some characters may have been killed in the writing of this novel. (Some readers might have laughed as well … unlikely) Really? I’ll ignore that.


Through humour it is easier to explore those areas in life which seem hardest to fathom including what makes us who we are and, when I think about it, the behaviour of the lead character. (Oh harsh!) 

Liar! Liar! Pants on Fire


Henry is a liar or so the voices in his head are trying to tell him. Throughout his life, Henry and death have been close companions. Deaths of family and friends have confused him about what is the truth and what is a lie. The voices in his head don't really help.

This is about a man with mental illness who is not sure whether his dreams are real and whether the voices in his head are conversational or directional.

Self Published


Gregg has come to the conclusion that his life is at an end. Through the use of songs in his life he tries to piece together what went wrong and whether he should jump or not?

This is about a man who has lost everything but is trying to find that reason to live.
