In my life, certain people have inspired me, three notable ones are Richard Bach, author of Jonathan Livingston Seagull; George Orwell, author of 1984; and Walter Miller, author of A Canticle for Leibowitz. These authors had a message for the world, something bigger and more important than just selling books. I too write with a bigger picture in mind, which is why I chose to write themes that are existential thrillers, with all the action, suspense, thrills and adventures of thrilling stories, but, with a thread, a message which kicks the box and shakes mediocrity, inviting readers to step outside their comfort zone and challenge the status quo.
