Why did you decide to be a writer?


On the spur of the moment! I've always been interested in reading and writing and finally had the opportunity to try it out.


Do you have a "day job"? If so, what do you do?


I'm a welder. I work in a large shipyard building large aluminum vehicle ferries for the international market.


What genres do you write?


Non-fiction, children's and dystopian fiction.

What inspires you to write?


I just come up with random ideas and then try and work out if there is a story in it that someone might be interested in reading.


What authors/books have most influenced you?


Wilbur Smith, Leon Uris definitely. James Patterson and Bernard Cornwall.


What are your goals as an author? Where do you see yourself in five years?


I would like to be living the dream and writing full-time.

What is the best compliment you've ever received as an author?


That someone loved one of my books is always a great compliment.

What do you enjoy doing aside from writing?


Fishing and hanging out with my wife. We live in a long distance relationship so all of our time together is precious.

If you were stranded on a deserted island, and you could only have five books with you, what would they be?


Ha ha! Five books about survival and how to build a raft!

What made you decide to self-publish?


I enjoy the self-publishing process.


What is your writing process?


Well, my first fiction book, The Before, I just sat down and started writing it. Now, I'm working on the second book in the series I came up with an outline and I'm trying to write 1,000 words a day.

How do you come up with the titles for your books? Do you find it difficult?


No, I normally come up with the title first!


Do you ever base your characters on people you know?


Not the characters, but I use names from people I know.

What are you working on now?


The next of the Little Fart series which is due for release in the next few days. It's a Little Fart and Santa Clause special event!


What was the hardest part about writing your latest book?


Keeping the amount of words down to work with the illustrations.


Do you have any advice for other authors?


Keep writing as much as you can and don't be put off if something doesn't work.
