Welcome to my website. I am a fiction author who loves everything to do with the natural world and the interesting people who inhabit our planet. I love hearing people’s stories and the diverse ways that each of us live our lives. I believe in love and I believe the Greek playwright’s, Euripides, words: “Love is all we have, the only way that each can help the other”. Love and tolerance for each other means we are making a conscious effort to get along. It means we are there for each other when times get tough. There isn’t a human on this planet who hasn’t been through tough times. The important thing is how we react when we receive a hit. We have choices and those choices can impact others in extraordinary ways. However, if we choose to love others first prior to making the choice, then the action becomes one of love which has the power to dissolve anger and prepares the way for reconciliation.

All my books have the theme of love and my characters suffer from the same problems as you and I. It is my intention to entertain you for a few hours, to let you know you aren’t alone, and that there are solutions to our problems, we just have to find them.

The sequel to African Hearts is coming…
