They say, “Write what you know.”  Who ‘they’ may be still remains a mystery, but I took the advice to heart when I wrote a book about a pair of misfits who found themselves walking a path I trod daily, seeking understanding in an indifferent world, but more on that later.

Life-changing accidents, lost loves, and an unremarkable career path followed, that is until a lawsuit and Mike changed everything. The lawsuit motivated me to step away from my career. Mike added the extra push, convincing me to take a leap of faith, and move to the country of his birth, New Zealand, while also encouraging me to “see where this writing will take me.”
