Am guilty of not looking at my website more often. Still trying to finish the final proofread of the new book. Not enough time for everything.

Thank you and apologies

Thank you to all the people who have looked at my website. Apologies for not reading the comments earlier. Week before Christmas sick, busy Christmas, Bali trip and New Year. Two weeks after New Year sick again. Thankfully we are well now so onwards and upwards - hopefully - will start updating the website, including more of my first book and move along with publishing the second book. The third one is coming along.


Sorry to people looking at my website. Haven't done much lately because am trying to finish off my new book. Once that is up and running away we go.

New Book

Coming later in 2014 a new novel by this exciting new author "The Life and Death of Lily" - the murder of a high class call girl set in Melbourne Australia. Another good story for a movie/tele movie.


Awaiting my final results for my Journalism Diploma. Once certificate is received will be an official Freelance Journalist. Taken a lot of work this year to finish it. Will add more of my book soon and will be moving along with my next book.

Indonesian Betrayal

From the cover of my novel it looks as it the story is denigrating Islam but this is not correct. It's a fiction story and has Australian and Indonesians in it - both good and bad. It's a good fast moving story and worth reading.


Hi folks
Am working hard this month to finish off my Journalism Diploma so next novel is on hold and updating this website.

Thank you

Thank you to all the people who like my website. I must add some more of my book but have some studies to complete this month.

Welcome to my website

A warm welcome to those who have visited this site. Been a busy time so soon should be able to add more of my novel to this site. Sorry to those who are getting impatient.

My Dream

I've always hoped to become a best selling author and my novels made into movies. The reason is that I wanted to help others less well off than myself but I'm not achieving this dream. I live in hope that it may happen but without the public's help it will not. Please buy my book.

Updating Chapter 1

This week is quiet so some updating of my book needs to be done. Hopefully no procrastination and we finish the chapter.

PC Problems

Back online after PC problems so will have to add some more of my book.

More of the book

Will put more of Chapter 1 on this weekend. Hope you're enjoying the read.

Indonesian Betrayal

Was supposed to add a little more of the novel Friday but unable to. Will do so this coming Friday.

More of Chapter 1

Have included another part of Chapter 1. Will try to add to this each Friday - hopefully.

Indonesian Betrayal

Coming this week more of Chapter 1. Ebook available on many online bookstores.

Must stop procrastinating

Definitely need to put more of my book onto my website. Just not enough time. It is available on most online book stores as hard copy or ebook. Buy buy buy....

Thank You

Thank you to everyone who visits my website. Now just need buyers for my book.

New Book

Considering only doing an e-Book for "The Life and Death of Lily". Decisions, decisions.....

Indonesian Betrayal

Must start keying in Chapter 1 of my book...

Film Rights

Still waiting for that important offer to buy the film rights. Is there no-one out there who is willing to take a chance on a new author's book?

Thank you

A big thank you to all who have looked at my website. Now I only need to entice people to buy my book.

Looking for an agent

Must get into gear and look for an agent for my second book. Too much procrastination. If no agent, then no publisher so will be back to self-publishing.

Prologue finished

Finished entering the Prologue. Will continue with Chapter 1 at a later date. Enjoy reading..


Apologies to anyone waiting for more of the prologue. Takes time to key it in but will be finished very soon..

Thank you

Have finally found the messages on my blog. Thank you to all who have responded. Takes time to update everything and must find the time to do so, but so much to do.

Still Waiting .....

Still waiting for that all important contact for the film rights to my book. There must be someone out there who's ready to take a chance on a new author's story. It's written in a way which can be easily converted for the screen.

More Work Needed on Selling the Film Rights

Need to put in some work on this website. Finish the Prologue and add 
to My Blog more often. Time is short with editing work, finishing the next book, studying Journalism and TESOL, going out to work etc, etc, etc.
Am still hoping someone will take a chance and buy the film rights to my books. I know they would make good movies/tele movies. Do want to help those less fortunate, but need to sell the movie rights first. Will keep working at this - will never give up.

Help still needed

As I've said my dream is to sell the film rights to my books. This can only be done with help from someone out there. The money would help in my retirement and in writing more books and, as I only need a certain amount of money to retain my present lifestyle, the remainder could go towards helping people less fortunate. All my books would make good movies so how about it?

A Dream in Limbo

My dream is to help others less fortunate but to do so I need to make money from my books and sell the film rights. Help is needed.

Waiting, waiting....

Still waiting for that offer for film rights. I know 'Indonesian Betrayal' isn't a bestseller but it would make a good movie....

Still hoping....

Still hoping someone will be interested in the Film Rights to my book. Must be someone out there who would like to make a movie of it and further books. Same characters in the first book will be in the third book..maybe tele movies..

Jill Meagher

Sad news today. The beautiful Jill is gone and we're all devastated. We were so hoping she would be found alive and well. Condolences and love go to all her family and friends and a big thank you to the detectives who worked on the case. RIP Jill. xxxx


Still waiting for increase in sales. It's a good read, moves quickly and you won't want to put it down..

UPDATE 06/09/2012

Still lots of activity on my website but no sales. Talking about the film rights - Hugh Jackman would make a good Glen but who would be ideal for Lori??

Thank you

Thank you to everyone who looks at my website. Help needed though in selling my book and is anyone interested in buying the film rights??

More help wanted

It's hard work self-publishing - trying to get people interested in you book when there are so many well-known authors out there, so please buy my book 'Indonesian Betrayal' either hard copy or e-book. It's on Amazon and many other online bookstores.


Proceding this week with sending my book to media outlets in the hope of attracting some publicity.

Hard work.....

Still trying to build sales of my book. It's hard work for a self-published author.

Novel Comment

Peggy S: Thank you for enjoying my book. Peggy has said that as she's 80+ she liked the book because there weren't too many characters to confuse her.


Anyone who has written a book and self-published knows how difficult it is to promote their book. When you have to work to pay your way, follow-up on promoting and find ways to promote, it's very difficult, but we do it and hope we can become a bestselling author. Ultimately, it's the public who make us successful. Self-publishing is a difficult process and new authors need help. Please support new authors.

Help me to be a bestselling author

I've self-published my novel, Indonesian Betrayal, and want to sell copies of it. Please, please buy my book and give me your feedback. It can be purchased on this website, from my publisher or from Amazon and various other online bookstores. It's very difficult to break into the market, so help is wanted to prove I've written a good story, which people enjoy.

Novel feedback

Thank you to Anthony S and Tony A for the great feedback on my novel.  They can't put it down.
