Author and environmentalist

I am a NZ author and committed environmentalist. I am also a medical doctor (specialist in rheumatology) and have been active in university teaching and medical research for 30 years.

I have published 3 books : “The Quiet Forest: The Case against aerial 1080” (Tross Publishing 2017) is non-fiction and addresses the use of 1080 (a potent poison) that is being distributed by helicopter over vast tracts of New Zealand native forest with profound consequences for the ecosystem.

I have moved from there to children’s magical fiction. “The Adventures of Roderick” series is for 6 – 12 year olds – although also enjoyed by adults. The first book is “Roderick and the Wizard of Endor” (Tross Publishing 2019). The second book in the series “Roderick and the Creeping Evil” – now published (print available at KKRKB website and e-book available on Amazon).
