The Nam Legacy
The Nam Legacy is an epic love story set during the 60’s and 70’s. When the Rolling Stones and Jefferson Airplane drove parents crazy, teenagers found sexual freedom and peace slogans covered placards. When the Vietnam War abducted the nation’s young men and sent them to fight in New Zealand’s most controversial campaign.
After eighteen months in Vietnam, New Zealand soldier Jack Coles thought killing others to stay alive would be the hardest thing he would ever have to live with. He was wrong.
Although the nightmare of what he saw and did haunt him constantly, what tortures him the most is what he has left behind.
‘Not everyone who lost his life in Vietnam died there, not everyone who came home from Vietnam ever left there.’
The Nam Legacy is Jack’s story.

A Tide Too High
When expat New Zealander and front-woman for international band Polar Blaze collapses on stage, she is issued an ultimatum. Change your lifestyle or pay the price.
Mac Morgan has built her entire life around working hard to prove she’s a success. She doesn’t know how to slow down. She disappears from media scrutiny and spends time recuperating at a private beach in the far north of New Zealand, a large coastal property owned by the Stanford family.
London-based Alec Stanford wants what his twin brother has: a home, a wife and children. But just because he’s one of the world’s most successful businessmen doesn’t mean he’s good at personal relationships. After his beautiful socialite wife files divorce papers, he thinks maybe he’s just not marriage material. But he’s not prepared for the chance meeting with a burnt-out rock star who’s hiding out from the media.
A chance meeting that has devastating results.
A Tide Too High is a New Zealand novel about relationships, misplaced loyalty and being strong enough to believe in yourself.

I was born in the seaside town of Foxton, New Zealand and grew up in Huntly, a rural Waikato mining town. I did the big OE early in life, traveling extensively in the UK, Europe and the Pacific before working my way around the North Island of New Zealand.
