Welcome to
My World of Crime Novels, Writing, and Telling Tales.

​For over a decade now, I have been consistently working on creating three exhilarating crime novels, all set against the backdrop of Australia and Canada.
These novels are sure to take you on a thrilling journey of suspense and drama, with characters you won't soon forget.
​I'm passionate about writing stories that probe into the darker corners of the human soul and explore the ways in which family secrets can continue to haunt
and affect generations to come. Generationally evilness can be passed on, as can goodness and decency.
In Book 1, 'Magpies in the Dust', I delve into the complexities of human relationships within one
family, the good and the bad, and how they lead to betrayal, abuse, violence and death. If you're a fan of gripping, page-turner crime novels, then you'll love what I do.  
Writing novels really floats my boat especially the development of my characters and the intricacy of the plot.
It is like a vast jigsaw puzzle in my head before I begin to plan my intended novel. Slowly, the storyline materialises and develops, just like a jigsaw. And I cannot wait to see it as a whole with all its intricacies emerging onto the paper.
To date, I have written four novels, inclusive of the three finished books of the 'Thieves of Innocence'Series outlined below.

Kas Goldman is rushing through the bustling arcades in the centre of Melbourne. She is pushing her baby Arabella in her stroller and is late to meet two of her sisters in front of the iconic Old General Post Office.

 

However, although Kas attempts to hurry, the going is slow due to the thousands of eager shoppers searching for a bargain at the annual Boxing Day Sales.

 

Arabella's cherished panda toy makes a daring escape from the stroller, landing amidst the sea of hurrying feet on the tiled arcade floor. Before Kas can reclaim the toy, a large elderly woman rescues the panda and turns.

 

At the same time, the ceiling overhead partially collapses, killing her instantly. She pitches foreward, onto Kas and the unsuspecting Arabella, still strapped in her stroller. Kas is knocked unconscious on impact with the floor.

In an instant, all around them, the mundane hustle of the shopping arcade is shattered. The world is thrown into a maelstrom of wind, dust, and debris, pierced by the cacophony of screams from the shocked crowd......................
