I am an author, blogger and singer-songwriter. Originally hailing from a little town in outback Australia, I now live in Amsterdam in the Netherlands.
My debut novel LORELESS, about a man in search of his roots, was inspired by my experiences with indigenous people. It has recently been nominated for two Australian literature awards.
Upon completion of LORELESS my children asked me to write something for them. My vivid imagination invented a witch with a twist. Unfortunately for them the story grew into something which isn't strictly for children. However, my nine-year-old son enthusiastically helps with plot development. If he doesn't understand what is going on, nobody will.
THE CITY OF SHADES is the prequel and latest release in the Good Witch Anaïs Blue series.
Her magical and quirky adventures continue in:
Volume 1: COMPLICATED BLUE
Volume 2: THE PROMPTUARY
Volume 3: THE ETHNARCH (coming soon)
Anaïs Blue has her very own Facebook page at:
Join in conversion with her there and don't be afraid to comment on her witchy witticisms. I'll make sure she behaves herself.

A writer is nothing without readers and I would love to hear from you.
Where it all began:
P.J. Whittlesea never dreamt of being a writer, he dreamt of being a rock star.
For a short period of time he was. However, he found the Gothic music scene not to his taste. He also found wearing nail polish and stage-makeup, as well as constantly attending to a Mohawk hairstyle, far too much work. He returned to his roots as a singer-songwriter and set to work writing a musical.
The musical never reached fruition, but the idea behind it stuck with him. Once he had come to terms with writing something longer than a song lyric, he took on the daunting task of creating a full-length work of fiction. Within a short period of time the story behind the musical became his debut novel LORELESS.
He is currently lost in the alternative world of the good witch Anaïs Blue and refuses to return to reality.
