Bio & Contact
More about me.
I am an award-winning, #1 New York Times-bestselling author of over forty novels and one hundred stories. My wife and I normally live in Adelaide, just up the road from Australia’s finest chocolate factory, but for 2018 we are in Dublin and loving it. You can subscribe to my newsletter here.
