Scientist. Writer. Muay Thai fighter.
If I can do it, anyone can.
And by 'it' I mean achieve your goals. As long as you're willing to work hard and hone in on those things at which you excel.
I grew up in a poor neighbourhood in a city well known for violence and crime, in a home that was no better. With the help of a few important individuals along the way, I broke the mould and fought against every stereotype, with which kids with my background were labelled, to build my future.
Now, I hold a degree in marine biology, a PhD in Endocrinology, and currently educate the World's doctors on new cancer therapies for the pharmaceutical industry. I have lived in the USA, Portugal, the Netherlands, Singapore and currently Switzerland. I have hand-tagged sharks in California; and trained in various martial arts, including Jeet Kune Do, Muay Thai,
and MMA at the EVOLVE MMA gym in Singapore and Pheonix KampfSport Switzerland.
Perhaps the achievements I am most proud of are my books.
My first novels Children of the Fifth Sun was published by Vesuvian Books in July 2017.
My second venture, It Takes Death to Reach a Star (co-authored with Stu Jones) will be published by Vesuvian Books in May 2018. Both have been optioned for TV/Film.
I am represented by Renee C. Fountain and Italia Gandolfo of Gandolfo-Helin-Fountain literary Management. PR for my books is handled through a partnership between my publisher Vesuvian Books and Meryl Moss Media.
So, you see. If I can do it, anyone can.
