I write the adventures I no longer have.

Suspend disbelief - Have an adventure!

I mostly write about military and para-military forces. That’s what I did for most of my youth. I was a soldier until wounded on an overseas mission, so now I write. There is no subtext in my novels, it’s all about a good, fun read.

I write Speculative Fiction and Comedy

I mostly write science fiction about military or para-military forces, some fantasy, and occasionally humour pieces. I'm Canadian; we spell things a little differently here.
