Testimonials

“It’s calming and heartening to watch a father quietly sift his daily life for what is sacred.” – renowned Australian author Helen Garner on my book, Matters of Life and Faith.

"This is rugged, strong writing with tonnes of character. It’s for people who think life hurts, rewards, bends, breaks and redeems." – Martin Flanagan, former senior writer at The Age, on my short story collection, Dodging the Bull.
“His poetry wears both halo and beanie . . . His poems are threaded with the spiritual, the ethereal and the very guts of life . . . considered, precise and completely compelling.” – alicia sometimes, ABC broadcaster and Outersanctum podcaster.
