Thankyou for your support, it’s amazing to hear that you’ve enjoyed reading my stories as much as I enjoyed writing them. It’s also an honour to be a part of supporting so many of your writing ambitions and innovative businesses, there’s nothing better than knowing my books and talks have played a part in shaping your enthusiasm and passion into a brand new novel or a workable business plan.
I love exploring the realm of psychology, both in my academic work and through the minds and behaviours of my most memorable characters. I have a daughter, Olivia, for whom I have to create these fantastical stories and characters on a nightly basis. There’s no feedback quite like the honesty of a child.
