Twenty years in the Australian Air Force, another sixteen as a corporate executive, and I finally figured out what I really want to be when I grow up.

Coming Soon

My latest novel, “The Man He Didn’t Know” is just going through its umpteenth revision and should be out in March.

A nerdy but unmotivated young man, Christopher Lyons finds his grandfather, Francisco Cortez, dead. It’s declared as suicide, but Christopher know better.

In spite of opposition from the authorities and from his own family, he sets himself the seemingly impossible task of finding the killer, but soon discovers Francisco isn’t who he’d always believed him to be.

One by one, suspects appear, as he peels away layers of identity and discovers terrible secrets, including one that makes him question his own identity.

A murder mystery wrapped in a thriller.
