How I Got Here

Henry (son)

Chocolate keeps him good and gives mum and dad some quiet time.

Erica (wife)

What did she see in me?

Vienna (daughter)

Cuddles, plaster, and don't forget the ice cream, no more tears.

Carl (me)

All those years ago, where did they go?

Maureen (mum)

Always see the best in me, even when the best of me is on vacation!

Rio (our best friend)

A best friend is someone who loves you when you forget to love yourself.

The most precise to me is my family; they give me many emotions, and often, in a single day; I would not have it any other way. So who am I? I'm the guy in that crowded cafe reading the newspaper, sipping my long black, the man singing to himself in the car next to you while queuing at the traffic lights, the family building sandcastles, sometimes functional and others, well? One day looks like another, teaching at the local college, cooking, cleaning, cutting the grass, and don't forget the kid's taxi driver, and so much more; in between the hectic work and family life, writing is my go-to place.

 

I am proud to be a British/New Zealander living in Auckland. I started my work life milking cows; eventually, I trained as a teacher and have worked in the education section for thirty-plus years; my ethos is simple— to grow good humans; my goals in life are also simple, to be the husband of a rock star primary school teacher and the dedicated father of two beautiful young children. As an enthusiastic coffee lover with a thirst for knowledge, made 'COFFEE' a natural choice for my debut book, conceived while in the solitude of my home surrounded by ancient forest. I am currently working on my next book, 'BIOHACKER,' which I am incredibly excited about; it was a book I had no intention of writing but had to write. It's a must-read book; your body and mind will thank you for it!

I love hearing from people. Please browse my newly updated Author Website to learn more about my work. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions; I look forward to hearing from you.
