I'm an Amazon best-selling author living in earthquake-hit Christchurch, New Zealand, where my contemporary novels are set. I'm a night owl and prefer writing late into the night whenever possible.

My books span a variety of genres. I've written crime noir fiction, contemporary YA (social issues), science fiction, middle grade interactive fiction, and co-written fantasy (now out of print).

My work has so far produced a Sir Julius Vogel Award (shared), the elusive Awesome Indies Seal of Approval (twice), and Amazon (US) #1 Bestseller ranking in Australian & Oceanian Literature, and Amazon (CA) #1 Bestseller rankings in Noir mysteries and thrillers, and Hard-boiled mysteries.
