About Myself :
I am a 50 year old Canadian living in Christchurch, New Zealand. I have worked as an athletic training instructor here in New Zealand and also in different other countries in Africa and Asia. My vast experience in athletics and travel created a desire in me to take my time and write about the joys and hardships that athletes go through. What every spectator sees is the end result of months if not years of hard work. They may not be aware of the tears, blood and sweat that go into preparing for athletic competitions. I do my creative writing to educate and entertain my readers. I am currently working as an athletic instructor at University of Canterbury. Many of the creative pieces I submit to Prairie Fire Writing Contests and The Writer’s Digest Short Fiction contest. Several of my pieces have been shortlisted for awards.
My Expertise :
Sport is my expertise. I also work with a lot of young people who get to serve as an inspiration for many of my short stories. Because of this, I have managed to create an impressive portfolio with several editors asking me to write for them creative nonfiction. Being a sports instructor, I rarely run out of creativity to spice up my writing. I am a dependable writer who is willing to go the extra mile when it comes to pleasing my clients. I deliver on time and am very open to criticism as this is what will make me become a better writer as time goes on.
