About me


 Head shot of me




I have a diploma in Body Language and Criminology, enabling me to explicitly portray my main character. Living in Auckland, New Zealand with my two dogs and partner, I enjoy watching documentaries about history and conspiracy theories, giving me ideas for my next books. At 30 years old, I have a diploma in Cognitive Behavioural therapy, Freelance Journalism, and Editing and proofreading; giving me the ability to better understand the human mind, and write about it in a comprehensive manner.


Along with those Diplomas, I have a certificate in Neuro-linguistic Programming, and currently studying Naturopathic Nutrition.

I have two upcoming websites – Mind, Body and Healthy Living website; offering advice and services in CBT, NLP, Nutrition and Personal Training. I’m currently studying to be a Naturopathic Nutritionist, Acupressure Facelift therapist, and Dialectal Behavioural Therapist.

The second website is Animal Behaviour, Pet Care and Welfare. I am a trained Dog Behaviourist, with certificates in Pet Care, Homeopathy for Animals, Animal Photography, Diseases and overall welfare of domesticated animals.

I have finished my second novel located in Romania, based on the legend Dracula, and the first-ever female serial killer – Elizabeth Bathory. Travelling to the year 2016, where another person mimics her crimes, and a man uses an ancient legend to further his purposes.


Each book unveils another layer. The historical plot reveals why the present day’s events have occurred. The other subplots travel back in time to each of the main characters, and reveals how they have become who they are.
Each book reveals a little more about the main character, and answers questions left open in the previous books.

I have recently finished my fourth novel based on the bubonic plague, and the conspiracy theories that surround that event.

  1. Appreciating the hard work you put into your site and in depth information you offer.
    It’s nice to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same
    unwanted rehashed information. Wonderful read! I’ve saved your site and I’m including your
    RSS feeds to my Google account.

    Reading through this post reminds me of my old
    room mate! He always kept talking about this.
    I will forward this article to him. Pretty sure he will have
    a good read. Many thanks for sharing!
