ABOUT ME


In 1998 I started my career as a playwright before branching out in 2012 to publish the first of my Blood Red Turns Dollar Green trilogy of crime novels. These books went on to become international bestsellers. In 2017, I co-wrote WWE Legend and Hall of Famer, Jim Ross’ autobiography, Slobberknocker: My Life in Wrestling. This book too went on to become an international bestseller.

Staid, my first feature film, won the award for Best Foreign Feature Film at the Los Angeles Independent Film Festival. 

 
 

Here are the books I have written
