This is my dedicated site as an award-winning author and executive producer of a documentary film. I am inspired by the big events in our history – ones which impact the current and the future. That inspiration has led to books written on World War II, the deadly 1977 race riots in Bermuda, the 2020-2021 global pandemic and a memoir on policing. My published books are in the non-fiction genre.
