I’m a reader and a writer and I live in Paekakariki, 40 km north of Wellington, New Zealand’s capital city, with my partner, Prue Hyman. I like to say this gives me the best of both worlds; easy access by train or car to a lively city and a wonderful home by the sea.
I have published nine books:
Stones Gathered Together, 2012, writings from several decades, available only as an ebook, from all major ebook retailers.
Where the heArt is, 2012, a novel, available only as an ebook, from all major ebook retailers.
