I was born in South Africa in November 1946, lived in the United Kingdom, and since 1981 have called Australia home.
My appreciation of literature blossomed at school and university, where I respectively achieved a first class matriculation and two business degrees.
London became my home in December 1974 after an American Fortune 200 company appointed me as their Director of Finance for Europe, Middle East, and Africa. Six years later, I migrated to Australia where I established an international IT company and am now its non-executive chairman.
Following placing my business under management, I commenced reading numerous books on novel ways of writing and sought guidance on technique, style, and format from numerous published authors and academics.
My fascination with different writing styles, diverse reading interests, research, life experiences, and extensive travelling have all contributed to my writing.
When Simon Hunter, former SAS squadron leader, meets Chelsea Baxter, she’s trapped working for abusive, drug-addicted John Slater, son of a billionaire mining magnate and international drug kingpin. But she’s just the inspiration Simon needs to get his own life back on the rails.
Shipwrecked and stranded in the Outback while cruising from Perth to Darwin, Simon and Chelsea find themselves victims of the brutal landscape, Aboriginal myths, and relentless pursuit by Slater’s operatives.
Even new identities and the anonymity of city life can’t protect them from Slater’s reach. Will what Chelsea found in the desert be their key to survival.
