Kids, teens and adult author 

Patrick lives in Titirangi, located on the fringe of the Waitakere ranges, Auckland, New Zealand



Patrick  started writing for the pure enjoyment of it. What surprised him was the stories and fictitious tales somehow hiding in the nooks and crannies of his cranium. A Saturday or Sunday can easily pass by unnoticed as he sits writing as his desk in Titirangi, Auckland, New Zealand.

As a late entrant into the wonderful world of children story writing, he enjoys this genre immensely, especially when a book can be linked to a story with wacky music!

His first foray into science fiction has been rewarding with this opening options to other forms of writing and media opportunaties.

He gets a lot of enjoyment from hearing about what his storytelling brings to reader’s reading enjoyment. He is presently compiling resource using mind mapping to help inspire others to use his approach to create their own stories and plots for publication.


I am presently working on five projects in order of sequence.

The next sequel in The Essence of Twelve trilogy.

My next children’s story – The monkey who loved to play the blues. 

A ukulele song compilation for children.

A book about work life balance. The triple eight principle

A book about using MindManager as a rapid problem solving tool

Ubuntu – A story of Hope. Lessons taught by living a life guided by faith  and walking the talk of commitment to serving those less fortunate than ourselves.
