I have always loved to read and often I wished I had more time to just sit with a good book, a cuppa or a glass of wine and read the time away. One of favourite authors would have to be Stephen King, and Jodi Picoult was another favourite (My Sister's Keeper). Instead, I found myself wishing I could write more and work less so I ended up combining the two; creating websites and writing articles and stories for clients. One of those projects was as a Ghost Writer for a single mother in the USA. In my younger years I was a bookbinder guillotine operator by trade and worked in a man's industry for many years. I particularly loved working with leather bound books and working at the National Library in Sydney NSW. Now I love to write my own stories and bind my own books. In 2021 I participated in a 50,000 word challenge which was a great experience and am currently in the process of finishing that novel ready for editing. I have several short pieces written but haven't been game to publish them but I will one day. With the help of friends, their support and encouragement, I am plotting a horror novel with a twist and nutting out a devilish serial killer novel. I am looking forward to developing my creative side and enjoy the research and challenges along the way.
