Meet the Author

I was born in 1955 in London, lived in Rome with my parents from 1963 to 1970, then returned to England to finish school there. After a gap year back in Italy I went to University in Dundee, Scotland, where I was awarded an MA Hons in Philosphy. After 6 years in the local fire service, in Dundee, my wife and I and two young children emigrated to Australia. I am now a High School teacher in Darwin, teaching Italian and English. I began writing fiction while at university, but then wrote little for years, until I took it up again in 2008. By 2010 I had completed 'Between Worlds', which is now available free here on Smashwords. Enjoy!

    Pass

    Very long and very slow paced. Lots of rehashing events to other characters -- not even interesting or critical events. Lots of Shakspeare and Budda quotes and references also bog down the story.

    No real surprises. Rather predictable ending -- which drug on for almost a hundred pages. You can scan every third page and still get the whole story.
