Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

I have always enjoyed the symbolism of Renaissance Art in which, among other things, purity, honesty and truthfulness is depicted by nudity. Titian's "Sacred and Profane Love" and Michelangelo's 'Sistine Ceiling' and "Doni Tondo" are obvious examples.

It is in that sense that I use nudity in my novels. Only the good guys run around naked. Nude is not rude! Actions can be evil or good; bodies are merely natural vessels and, if well maintained, are admirable.

My characters live in the real world, not in a ghetto. They just happen to be gay and any sex is part of the story, not gratuitous or explicit.

All my novels are set in tropical Australia in the present day.

I've published six novels:- 'Rough Justice', 'Dome of Death', 'Sebastian', 'Jarek', 'NumbaCruncha', & 'Mortaumal'; a memoir - 'Dancing Bare', and a volume of short stories:- 'Time to Think'.

I write the sort of fiction I like to read--fast-paced with some danger and heroes who are decent, honest, reliable and unafraid to make decisions, and who reckon that more than enough is too much.

I live with my partner as naturally as possible in today’s world, on several sclerophyll forest acres in sub-tropical Queensland.

My first twenty-four years on this earth are recalled in a light-hearted memoir, Dancing Bare, about my less than famous exploits in nineteen sixties London, Paris, Europe and North Africa.

I write the sort of stories I like to read myself, in which people who share my ideas, values, hopes and fears, cope bravely with dangers without compromising their principles.
