Cartoon Call-Out


Hi everyone!

I’m looking for a talented cartoonist/digital artist to create some images for a quirky non-fiction book coming out in April. I need a fun and vibrant front cover to attract people who attend pop-culture conventions, youth markets and so forth. 

If you’re interested, or know someone who is, get them to shoot me an email:

What comes next? (&) Happy Australia day!

Hi there!

A big shout out and thank you (again) to everyone who attended the BOUND book launch in Brisbane. I hope everyone enjoyed the company, reading and free-cheese. Just a reminder that BOUND is now now available on this site (click on the purchase book tab) in paperback or ebook, Smashwords & Amazon. I would love to sign any paper copies as well, just sent me a message.

So what comes next?

 Well… lots of stuff. I’m a busy beaver writing the Guardians #2 (because trust me, after you read BOUND you’re going to be saying “What happens next? For the love of God I need closure!”) So I need to get stuck into it. I’m also producing a small, quirky non-fiction book that will be available before April. Still a bit of a secret at this point, but I will have more details in Feb!


I’m also attending a lot of Brisbane-based writers events and, fingers crossed, the Emerging Writers’ Festival in Melbourne. 


Plus, ta-da, I will be selling BOUND at Gold Coast Supanova 2014! So come find me!

I hope everyone has a great Australia Day, weather that means getting out and enjoying the weather or totally chillaxing as only we Aussies know how to do. Ahhhhh *sinks into chair*


Book Launch a Success!

Official trailer video!

Hi everyone!

A quick update to let you know that the official trailer video will be up next week. It looks great and I am so excited to share! I hope you like it and might think about getting a copy of BOUND to see what the fuss is about!

Take care,

Today: The next book & where to purchase BOUND!

Hi everyone!

I’ve been asked a fair bit about what I’m currently working on, ‘are you writing another book or are you just putting your energy into selling this one?’ The answer is both! Whilst I will be starting to release my debut novel into the world very soon I’m also drafting the second novel in the Guardian’s series (working title INTERLOCK). 

As for BOUND, I’m putting up the page ‘where to buy’ up very soon. However please note that the SMASHWORDS version will be available after the 23rd but is available via pre-order and the Kindle version will be up sometime before Tuesday. I will post to let you know. Paperbacks will be available also after Tuesday for pre-order, I’m keeping the official release date at the 23rd to insure everything is perfection!

Talk soon!
