He has always enjoyed going barefoot as much as possible and has been a member of the Society for Barefoot Living, an internet-based discussion group, since 1996.
In 2013 he became a keen geocacher, combining his love of technology and bushwalking in the GPS-based hunt for caches hidden by fellow participants.
His first novel, Barefoot Times, was published in 2004, followed by Call of the Delphinidae in 2006, The Mind of the Dolphins in 2008 and Cry of the Bunyips in 2011. Plight of the Tivinel is now the fifth book in the series.
I became an avid reader of fantasy and science fiction as an eleven-year-old boy when my next-door neighbor, who was a children's librarian, took pity on my single-parent mom. Bored out of my gourd with no one to play with but good 'ol mom, I drove her crazy until Mrs. Crabtree brought home a stack of books she knew would hook a young boy and give my mom some relief. It worked. I've been hooked ever since.
For the past two decades, I've been conducting an experiment. Is it possible to create a new context for my life that I feel is "divinely inspired" and true to my deepest values, my sense of what's possible, and true to my soul and spirit? If it is possible, what will be the results? Will it enhance my life? Will I experience a true sense of purpose and meaning? Will I know at the end of the experiment that my life has mattered?
Becoming a writer of speculative fiction and non-fiction that contributes to people's lives, have been an integral parts of this experiment, as was co-founding Life On Purpose Institute with my wife in 1996, being a coach to assist others to create their own life on purpose experiment, and training other Life On Purpose Coaches.
Since selling my veterinary practice in the late 80's to pursue a career as a writer and life coach, I've published over 350 magazine articles in such publications as Family Fun, Boys' Life, Body and Soul (then New Age Journal), Yoga Journal, and Better Homes and Garden, to mention just a few. Many of these have been part of my pet writing project: Project Purpose: to write and publish articles about people whose lives are dedicated to a bold and inspiring purpose or vision.
From magazine writing, it was a natural next step to graduate to writing books, starting with visionary nonfiction -- books that engage and encourage while also entertaining. Then there are some dreams that hang around and won't go away, no matter how many time you push them to the back burner. That's the case with the dream that began as an eleven-year-old boy. That's where the other half of the equation comes in -- visionary fiction -- stories that, first and foremost, entertains while also enlightening and encouraging the reader to embrace greater possibilities in their own lives.

I have edited and contributed to Motorcycle Magazines, Blogs and short story sites about the Biker lifestyle. I have covered events, interviewed famous custom bike-builders and artists, as well as written hundreds of articles.
Since I have a smart-ass attitude and am creative, I was encouraged by "fans" to write novels as well. So I did, just not the ones they thought I would. My favorite books and authors are people like Jim Butcher and Frank Herbert, Modessit and Feist, Asimov and Gibson, Weber and Jordan (RIP). So I went with my second great love for subject matter instead of my first.
I have numerous project in the works, including more SciFi and even a fictional account about the Biker lifestyle.
My political leanings, as well as my Biker credo, have seeped into my writing and that is why I believe free enterprise, innovation and entrepreneurs will advance us, while entitlement vote buying nanny staters will be our demise, keeping us bound to this world. You can't look out, up and beyond when you are trying to spoon feed and placate the bottomless demands of the gobblers with every spare dime you can steal from the people who actually contribute.
I currently reside in Wisconsin (which sucks 6 months out of the year for riding) with my wife and two dogs.

Growing up, I spent every summer there, exploring the surrounding countryside. Even back then I used to imagine faeries and monsters, with the trolls always living under the bridge on the way up to the spring. Willie was getting old now, so I fetched the water.
My Grandad is long gone now, but the farm is still there. I still know the owners and I still take my kids out there from time to time. The roads haven't got much better, but it's worth it to walk the old fields again, and show them where I played as a boy.
My first 'proper' job was as an apprentice, building aircraft with a company called Shorts Brothers in Belfast. I then went on to join the Royal Air Force. I always joke that my first job was building planes, but my second was shooting them down.
I traveled a fair bit with the RAF, but now I'm back on civvy street, living in Belfast, Northern Ireland, with my wife, two girls and a dog.
I started writing when my youngest daughter informed me that she was getting too old for bedtime stories. You see, I'd been making up a different one each night for both of them for years. I was devastated. What was I to do with all this nonsense in my head?
So I began to write.
'Souls of the Never' is my first book in a series I call 'Tales of the Neverwar', but I've gone on to write 'Origins of the Never', a novella prequel to Souls. Book Two, Worlds of the Never is done, and I'm currently working on book three, War of the Never.
