“I have been blessed with two beautiful, healthy daughters and a wife who supports me in living my dream as a writer,” he says. “As Michael Schumacher once said, ‘I was born to race motorcars.’ I feel the same way about my purpose in life—I was born to write books.”

“The first five years were a kind of apprenticeship,” he says. “Though no Dickens or Shakespeare, I feel I’ve now reached a level of writing that I never thought possible a decade ago. Saying that, a writer never stops learning. Perfection is in the process. There’s always something more to discover."
“Like Samantha Honeycomb, my life has been an incredible journey,” he adds. “I can’t wait to see what else the future holds."
