I currently teach on a Pacific Voyaging double hulled canoe operating on the east coast of New Zealand. Dream job? Hell yeah. I have published eight academic books, with a couple more in the oven, and over a dozen peer reviewed articles. But I have vowed not to write any more stuff people don’t read, so, I am concentrating on fiction, in the form of short stories and novels. I recently received my first book contract from an indie publisher in the USA (Dreaming Big Publications), and have followed that with two other novels to complete that trilogy. (Unless folks want more, ‘cause I’ll give them that). All going well, everybody’s Christmas pressie this year will be my first novel! I have just started my forth novel, a science fiction story tentatively titled, Misstep.
