I was born in England, and lived most of my life in Australia, before returning to the UK some years ago; my dual nationality means that I am often a bit too cheeky, but will always apologise for it.

I have been writing fiction for over thirty years, mostly for the enjoyment of myself and my friends, but writing is my love and my vocation, so of course that’s where my dreams and ambitions are. In the meantime, technical writing helps to pay the mortgage, while I also have fun with web design, reading, watching movies and television, knitting, and imbibing espresso.

Reviews

A magnificent and emotional reflection on the complexities of a relationship among three men. A THREEFOLD CORD reviewed by The Romance Reviews

I love the way Dave & Nicholas’s personalities are slowly revealed. Organic dialogue and natural reactions show Nicholas’s humor with an underlying layer of seriousness, and Dave’s confidence and sweetness convey a change he’s just entering in his life. BUTTERFLY HUNTER reviewed by Prism Book Alliance

… if you want a very good psychological thriller, of the old fashioned type, I can fully recommend this one. THE DEFINITIVE ALBERT J. STERNE reviewed by Elisa Rolle

Jules Madigan loves his family and he loves his job. The only thing he’s missing out on is a Happy Ever After, like the ones written by his favourite romance author Ewan Byge.

But the course of True Love never did run smooth, and soon Jules has to face some harsh realities.

Investigative journalist Mitch Rebecki loves his job and loves New York. He doesn’t mind making enemies, either.

ALBERT J. STERNE: FUTURE BRIGHT, PAST IMPERFECT

ALBERT-FUTUREby Julie Bozza

Three young boys on a collision course: Albert Sterne – isolated, driven and fiercely intellectual; Fletcher Ash – bright, dedicated and with a strong sense of justice; John Garrett – hurt, marginalised and determined to do to the world exactly what the world has done to him. The eleven short stories in this companion volume continue and expand on the lives of the characters from the same author’s outstandingly popular THE DEFINITIVE ALBERT J. STERNE, which should preferably be read first.
