Welcome to my new website and blog – my old one was so out-of-date. It’s taken me a while to put together and I’m pleased with the results, though it still needs a little tweaking.
I’m an author and illustrator of inspirational and motivational books for adults and children. Many years ago I wrote my autobiography – probably more as therapy than anything else; but life continued happening to me and I got to thinking: what good will this story do, isn’t there enough misery in the world without me adding to it by writing more? I subsequently burnt it. It was around this time that I began searching for meaning in my life that I had a profound experience – a realisation that we’re all connected, we’re One. I began to question everything I knew, accepting nothing at face value, writing down these questions and the thoughts surrounding them. From this, my first book On The Other Hand – The Little Anthology of Big Questions was born.
In my books I take an honest look at our quirky and often bizarre behaviour in society, challenging the status-quo we accept as unchangeable; questioning and pushing the boundaries we set ourselves – and those that have been set for us. I’m convinced that if we want to change our lives and change our world then we must first change ourselves – to take responsibility for the things we do and in doing so, take back the power that – in general – we don’t realise we’ve given away. In my writings I give no answers to life’s questions – we already have them and only need to find the courage to recognise them, accept them and then act. I invite you to join me on my journey, questioning the society we call ours and the role we play within it.
All but my first book On The Other Hand are illustrated (paperback versions only) and the blurb for each of them is an accurate description of what to expect inside.
