I’ve had 14 books published and have finally narrowed down my genre – spiritual thrillers.
I am a recovering accountant, banker, corporate trainer, lecturer who turned to writing. I somehow found myself involved in (or informed about) international intrigues, dishonesty and fraud, involving banks, governments and police forces. I thought it was time to turn them into stories so everyone can experience the “other side” of life.
Having run personal development courses in several countries (and being a student of A Course in Miracles) I cannot help but bring in the spiritual element to these stories, giving characters (and readers) ways of dealing with stressful situations.
Life is far too interesting to be fluffing about on the sidelines and I (and my characters) are determined to live it to the fullest, even if it means a little danger, stress and uncertainty at times!
I have been a columnist, editor and publisher of magazines in NZ, Aust., Sth Africa and Czech Republic. I was commissioning editor for Business Books (an imprint of O-Books) and am a freelance writer and editor for clients around the world.
