I began my writing life as a song-writer and singer in an Australian band, The Little Heroes' in the '80's - we had one hit and few near misses - 'One Perfect Day', which still floats around the Australian zeitgeist today - then I started writing books. Since then, I've morphed into a writer, traveler and trader in that order, who loves the strange, dark and inspired in life, whether it be a human being, a sunset or a state of mind. I'm fascinated by the interesting contradictions of being human, and live with the friction of my choices gladly, though sometimes with a little fear and exhilaration.
After having written two non-fiction books about Vipassana meditation, my first novel, Levin's God, was published in 2005 and did well.
My newest book, Sweet Emptiness, (on Tablo) has taken longer than I thought to finish - ten years - largely because I've spent most of that time travelling throughout SE Asia.
Next up is a book of travel tales, an audio enhanced book on meditation, and a memoir of my strange early life, including my time in The Little Heroes.
