About the Author
I am a 56 year old author who until three years ago, thought he was an accountant/journalist. I have found my true passion in life; writing and that will be my sole focus for the rest of whatever days the Universe has left to give me on this beautiful world. When I was a kid, I always wanted to be a writer, when I grew up - well, I've finally grown up! I live in Manila, in the beautiful islands of The Philippines, with my adorable wife and two wonderful step-children. I like to believe I truly am #livingthedream. My first novel is a fantasy, romance; The Second Coming, which explores the idea of Jesus Christ returning to save humanity from the brink, yet again, but this time in modern day Manila. The Second Coming is the first of a trilogy. The second novel; Rise of the AntiChrist will be available in December 2015 and the final book in the series; Holy War is my current Work In Progress. I have also completed another book; Just a Drop in the Ocean, a romance that spans the decades and the generations. I am editing that at present and hope to self-publish it by December 2015. I am a champion of the Independent Author and firmly believe that we ALL have a right to publish our ideas, our dreams and our fantasies. I absolutely love connecting with readers and other authors on Social Media and am always willing to help with anyone who has a question.
