Can you tell us about your main character?
It is based on bits of me and bits if other people. He is what I could have been, might have been if I had made some really stupid choices. Thankfully I never did.

How did you develop your plot and characters? With love and affection and a hell of a lot of re-writing.

Who designed the cover? I did.

Who is your publisher? Mirabal Entertainment Australia

Why did you choose to write this particular book? It was in me.

Tell us a bit about your family. Born in London’s East End. Brought up in Essex in a very loving working class family. They encouraged me to spread my wings and travel the world. I finally came to Australia and am husband to a beautiful wife who allows me to be me and father to two teenage boys. One who is special needs. They are the reason I do what I do.
How do you work through self-doubts and fear? I don’t. I have to be told time and time again that I am good enough. Being an ex-journalist I tend to ponder over every nuance of a word until I realise people just want to read it.
What scares you the most? Not reaching my potential
What makes you happiest? My wife
What’s your greatest character strength? Empathy
What’s your weakest character trait? Empathy
Why do you write? For peace. It’s a cathartic process. It’s a release. Just like exercise keeps the body healthy, writing keeps the mind alert.
