Powerful Stories

Fact, or fiction?


You can find both non-fiction and fiction on this site. What unites is them is my interest in how we find happiness.

As a wise man once said, 'That which is hateful to you, do not do to your fellow.' I explore this through micro-essays in espresso. Each piece can be consumed in two minutes on your phone, and provide fascinating insights that illuminate our selves, health, culture, work, society, and politics. They'll surprise you.

The novels are different in that they have a narrative. They feature a character who struggles against massive odds to win through. Beneath that, they're about people trying to fulfil their conflicting visions. There's plenty of fact in there too … as one reviewer put it, 'Although classed as fiction it is scarily a possibility in our currently dysfunctional world. Definitely worth reading, I heartily recommend it.'

Whatever you choose, they're there to be enjoyed. I had a lot of fun writing them and hope you have fun reading them.
