After ten years working a job that didn’t fulfill me, I saw the next ten years playing out exactly the same. It was either stay put, or take a leap of faith. Do something I always wanted to do. Become a full-time author.

Within months, I sold my business, bought a caravan, and set out to travel around Australia with my dog, Ruben. Now, I write every day (and in some pretty amazing places). I make my way around this beautiful country, having adventures and working (I hope) toward a true masterpiece.

Come join me for the ride…
