I'm here to shake up the military thriller genre. It's time we had a new voice, with contemporary combat experience and authentic story lines. I'm putting the other authors in this space on notice.

A bit about me:

I attended Banksia Park High School in Adelaide, South Australia, and then in 1990 I decided to leave home, at sixteen years old, to work on a sheep station in the Australian outback.
The following year I joined the Australian Army and rose through the ranks to retire from Special Forces as a Major in 2011.

In a distinguished twenty-year career (over fifteen years in Special Forces) I was deployed to Somalia, East Timor (twice) and Afghanistan (twice) as well as spending a year as a member of staff at the Royal Marines Commando Training Centre in Lympstone, U.K.

In 1997 I was selected on Australia's first course for service as a regular commando. In 2002 I was selected on the first course run for domestic counter terrorism outside of the Special Air Service Regiment. I spent five years as an operator in the Tactical Assault Group and I was the Officer in Charge of Selection for Special Forces before departing from service life.

I was awarded the Distinguished Service Medal (DSM) for leadership in battle in the 2012 Queen's Birthday Honours for leadership of Yankee Platoon of the 2nd Commando Regiment.

I have recently completed a Bachelor's degree in international relations majoring in societies and peace studies and I believe that this academic grounding coupled with my combat experience gives me a unique perspective with which to write modern military thrillers.
