This is my debut novel, published by Firefly Press, for children and adults interested in an adventure set in the temperate rainforest of the Pacific Northwest.
It's about friendship, family, dealing with loss and appreciating the importance of balance in the environment.
The sequel, BIGFOOT ISLAND is out in 2023!!
Having travelled the world to practice many unskilled jobs- dishwasher, snowshoveler, bicycle messenger, barman, film extra, from Colorado, California, Hong Kong and beyond, I returned to London from New York with a wife and two children, and gave up trying to be a serious comedy actor to do a day job.
With the kids having flown the nest I returned to acting. Whilst 'resting' I wrote a short story about a girl finding Sasquatch footprints in the woods behind her cabin.
Fortunately, a friendly agent saw its potential and that was the beginning of my professional literary life.
'A beautiful and engrossing tale of a mighty child, a magnificent forest and the mysteries which bind us all in the best ways – this is a rich and powerful book, a real triumph of love, wisdom and storytelling.'
